Clouded around LSU’s dominant win over Oklahoma on Saturday was the tragic news of the passing of LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger’s daughter-in-law Carley McCord, who died just hours before kickoff in a plane crash in Louisiana.

Showing remarkable strength, Ensminger went on to call plays for the LSU offense, as the Tigers compiled 692 total yards in a 63-28 win over Oklahoma to earn a spot in the national title.

After the game, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow was asked by SEC Network host Dari Nowkah about McCord’s passing and revealed he did not know about the news until the interview.

Nowkhah took to Twitter to apologize on Sunday, in a series of tweets directed towards Burrow and everyone involved in the tragedy.





Clearly showing remorse for assuming Burrow knew of the news, Nowkah sent his condolences to the LSU community.

Just one day after the terrible tragedy, McCord’s passing will surely remain a rallying point for LSU as they play Clemson for a national championship in her honor on January 13.
