The scoreboard said Louisiana beat Arkansas State, 37-20, on Thursday night. The box score says Louisiana dominated the ground game, rushing for 315 yards on 46 attempts (6.8 yards per attempt), in winning their fifth game of the season. It did not mention that Louisiana also stole Arkansas State's soul with one of the most vicious, violent, and disrespectful blocks you will ever see.
During the Ragin Cajuns' 17-point loss, Vallot, a redshirt sophomore center and former walk-on who received a full-ride scholarship earlier this season, cleared the rushing lane for running back Trey Ragas. Vallot, with the assistance of a shove from guard Kevin Dotson, literally threw the nose tackle about five yards.
