Third downs doom Gators in LSU loss

The Tigers defeated the Gators 17-16 to earn their first SEC win of 2017.

Devin White, who finished with 13 tackles, broke up a Feleipe Franks fourth down pass with 1:39 to play to seal the deal, after a punt from Zach Von Rosenberg pinned the Gators deep in their own territory with little time to mount a game-winning drive.

LSU responded to the negativity on Saturday with its biggest win of the young season.

"We couldn't get the plays in so once we got the plays in we had to hurry up and rush", Perine said.

Did LSU get what it deserved?

LSU opened the second half with a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive, capped by Etling's touchdown pass to Carter.

Florida scored on the next drive with a 2-yard run by Lamical Perine with 7:39 left in the third. The contest was originally supposed to be in Gainesville but was postponed because of Hurricane Matthew. Reese and defensive end Jabari Zuniga sacked LSU quarterback Danny Etling once each. "Since we are already singing 'We are the Boys, ' let's go right from that into one of his great anthems and make that the way we are going to jointly celebrate Tom Petty and the Gators".

NOTES: Florida K Eddy Pineiro's 25-yard field goal accounted for the Gators' only points of the first half. The game was eventually played in Baton Rouge later in the season, with both teams buying out their nonconference opponents for that week. Etling came into the game completing 20 percent of his passes under pressure.

Following LSU's 17-16 win over Florida on Saturday, the LSU running back took to his Twitter account to ask the Florida coach a simple question.

LSU WR Derrick Dillon was ejected at the 5:43 mark for targeting and missed the remainder of the game.

The Tigers moved the ball well early with jet sweeps and then pounded it between the tackles late, doing just enough to hand the Gators (3-2, 1-1) their first SEC loss of the season.

Two weeks after a 30-point drubbing at Mississippi State — LSU's most lopsided setback in series history — the Tigers lost to a non-conference opponent at home for the first time since 2000.
