LSU can make tumultuous week better or worse against Florida

Florida escaped Tiger Stadium with a 16-10 victory last November thanks to a goal-line stand in the final seconds.

Linebacker Devin White ended Florida's hopes when he batted down a fourth down pass by Gator quarterback Felipe' Franks.

LSU won the toss and deferred to the second half.

"We tried to get it situated, but obviously it wasn't handled the right way", Clark said. Defensively, the Gators allowed LSU to convert 4-of-7 on third down in the first half and 6-of-14 for the game.

LSU came out of the half and put up another touchdown, as freshman fullback Tory Carter hauled in a 2-yard pass from Danny Etling to give LSU a 17-3 lead.

Still, LSU opened the scoring on a Russell Gage 30-yard scamper to the left. Lamical Perine capped back-to-back scoring drives with short touchdown runs, but the Gators botched a potential tying extra point and trailed 17-16 heading into the fourth quarter.

"Really the difference is the game was in third downs", Florida coach Jim McElwain said.

LSU finished with 216 yards on the ground, with Derrius Guice returning from injury to rush for 50 yards.

Cody Worsham, editor of LSU's Tiger Rag, had his camera rolling when a packed house in Gainesville, Florida, turned thousands of voices into one, singing, "I Won't Back Down".

Alleva "wanted to know what was going on, what we could do better", said Orgeron, who's in his first season after serving as interim coach in 2016.

Gators defensive tackle Khairi Clark said defending sweeps was the responsibility of players along the edge of the defense and said UF's coaching staff made the issue a point of emphasis when the team was down 10-3 in the locker room at halftime. Wide receiver Kadarius Toney managed 52 yards on six carries out of the wildcat. Though ultimately, it wasn't enough late in the game when the Gators had to pass. LSU WR Derrick Dillon was disqualified in the first quarter after being called for targeting.
