The highest scoring game in FBS history never should have come close to that level, according to LSU head coach Ed Orgeron.

Following the Tigers' 74-72 loss to Texas A&M in seven overtimes on Saturday, Orgeron immediately told reporters the referees made a mistake in giving the Aggies a final play with one second remaining in regulation.

"These guys should have won 10 games," Orgeron said, per Brody Miller of NOLA.com. "That second shouldn't have been put on the clock."

The clock originally ticked to 0:00 on the play that saw Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond spike the ball to stop time, but the officials added one second after a review.

Mond threw a 19-yard touchdown on the added snap to send the game to overtime.

After an incredible back-and-forth through the first six extra quarters, Kendrick Rogers' two-point conversion in the seventh frame gave Texas A&M the win.
