COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Apparently, seven overtimes was not enough.

After No. 22 Texas A&M outlasted No. 7 LSU, 74-72, in a NCAA record tying seven overtimes that took four hours and 53 minutes Saturday night, the battle raged on after the game on the field and the fallout may continue Monday.

LSU offensive analyst Steve Kragthorpe, 53, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2011 and has had a pacemaker in his chest to stimulate his brain since 2017, was punched by a credentialed man from the Texas A&M sideline in the chest. That is when LSU director of player development Kevin Faulk, a former LSU and NFL star back from Carencro, went after the man, whose identity has not been confirmed by A&M.

“Out of nowhere, I got nailed,” Kragthorpe said in a phone interview while he drove back home from the game Sunday afternoon. “I didn’t go down, but I clutched over. I was like, ‘Damn, he got me right in my pacemaker.’ Then it started fluttering like he jostled it.”
