Guest Trivia Answer:
First, thanks to Cheryl Fasullo for the guest trivia question!

The last time that Rice defeated LSU in football in Baton Rouge was on September 21, 1957 when the Owls won, 20-14.  The 1957 tri-captains were Matt Gorges, King Hill and Larry Whitmire.

A message from Matt Gorges:  “I played in the 1957 LSU/Rice game which Rice won 20/14 at Baton Rouge with a second half comeback.  It was Billy Cannon’s sophomore year.  I recall Raymond Chilton running about 45 yds between Larry Whitmire and me for the winning touchdown.  Great wonderful memories.”

The series resumes on November 17, 2018 when LSU hosts Rice at Tiger Stadium.  Read more.
