Tuesday Trivia

Last week's question:

LSU's offense was rendered completely inept in this year's National Championship game that they lost 21-0. LSU gained just 92 total yards and didn't cross midfield until late in the 4th quarter. Shutting out LSU is no small feat. In fact, the only school to do it in the last 16 years is Alabama. In addition to last night, the Tide also shut out the Tigers in 1996 and 2002. Who was the last school other than Alabama to shut out LSU?

You have to go all the way back to September 4, 1993 when the Texas A&M Aggies shut out LSU 24-0 during the opening week of the '93 college football season. The '93 A&M defense featured future NFL Pro Bowlers Sam Adams and Aaron Glenn, both of whom were selected in the first round of the 1994 NFL Draft.

This week's question:

For all of Tom Brady's postseason accolades, Sunday marked just the 4th time in 20 career playoffs games that he'd thrown for over 300 yards. The last two occurrences both came against the Denver Broncos. What two other teams has Brady thrown for 300 yards against during the postseason?

  1. Leave it to the Pats fan.

    2002 Snow Bowl vs Oakland Raiders. And yes, I am well aware of the bad call and the fact that Oakland should have won that game.

    2004 Super Bowl vs Carolina Panthers. And that team has never been the same since.
