The AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic lost a giant of a man on Tuesday, January 11, 2011. Dan S. Petty, who had been closely associated with the North Texas bowl game for more than five decades, passed away after a brief illness.
The 71-year-old Petty enjoyed a unique relationship with the AT&T Cotton Bowl. His first brush with the Classic took place at the 1960 Cotton Bowl game as a member of the Texas Longhorns team that battled Syracuse.
Peterson was right.
After recording an interception, seven tackles—including a sack—and forcing two fumbles, Mathieu was voted the Outstanding Defensive Player of the game and was awarded the Felix McKnight Trophy.
“We were up all night just talking,” Mathieu said.
With the victory LSU (11-2) captured its fourth 11-win season in the past six years and won its third AT&T Cotton Bowl in the last four tries.
LSU’s one punt is a record beating the previous mark of two set six different times.
The 65 total points scored is the sixth best in AT&T Cotton Bowl history. The record was set in 2009 when Ole Miss (47) and Texas Tech (34) combined for 81 points.
The 41 points scored by LSU are good for a fifth place tie for the most points by a winning team. The Tigers are knotted with Penn State (1975) for that distinction.
The wide receiver entered the game with just nine touchdown receptions in his whole career, two on the 2010 regular season and no more than three in a total season at LSU.
