The LSU Tigers received a savage trouncing on Saturday night in its highly anticipated showdown in Baton Rouge against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Bama defeated Louisiana on their home turf in an astounding 29-0 final score, or, as the Washington Post  said, “an exercise in the art of domination.”

The mood at the game can best be summed up by one young lady in particular, who cameras caught locked in a fiery death stare as the Tide were up 22-0.

The moment called to mind another football-famous meme: “Stop Girl,” a University Arizona fan who desperately wanted the cameraman to stop focusing on her. Stop Girl became the subject of a subreddit and constant internet adoration.

Now we’re seeing the emergence of “LSU girl,” as she’s being called on Twitter, and she was a near-instant hit:

Others, including indie country singer Jason Isbell piled in with words of sympathy, and of course, even more jokes:

Even the official NBC Sports Twitter account got in on the act, calling her the “Jim Halpert of college football.”

Alabama safety Deionte Thompson later admitted that the opposing team’s defensive line “did an amazing job,” but they were no match for the Crimson Tide. “They just made it easier for us in the back end to see the routes and the route concepts,” he said. “And they made it easier to cover the receivers just because of the pressure they put on the quarterback.”

Alabama returns to Tuscaloosa next weekend to face off against the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
