LSU WR John Diarse Says He's Watched His Touchdown Catch Against Wisconsin 'Probably 1,000 Times'

One of the biggest plays of college football's first weekend occurred in the third quarter of the contest between LSU and Wisconsin. 

With the Tigers trailing, 21-13, LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings found wide receiver John Diarse near the sideline on a 3rd and 9. Diarse caught the pass, broke a couple tackles, and scampered for a 36-yard touchdown. The play helped cut the Badgers' lead to three points and gave Les Miles' squad the momentum. 

Diarse says he's watched the play about "1,000 times" since Saturday. 

Diarse had just one other catch, a 16-yard reception. 

LSU hosts Sam Houston State this Saturday.
