Former Louisiana State University and National Football League star Yelberton Abraham Tittle Jr. has passed away at the age of 90.  Tittle played for the Tigers during the mid-1940s and set five records, including passing yards in a career, touchdown passes and total offense. In a 2008 interview with our own Jim Engster, the Marshall, Texas native explained how he ended up at LSU

Tittle played in one of the strangest bowl games, the 1947 Cotton Bowl which LSU and Arkansas played to a scoreless tied. It has since been called the Ice Bowl
