Bounce back big: Tigers edge Florida at the Swamp

Bounce back big: Tigers edge Florida at the Swamp

All said that Wisconsin would win, although Desmond Howard said it would be "a close one".

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

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

SC 48, Arkansas 22 • The defense scored three touchdowns and Jake Bentley threw for 199 yards and three TDs as the host Gamecocks (4-2, 2-2) ripped the Razorbacks (2-3, 0-2).

Florida entered its homecoming matchup with LSU on a three-game win streak because of its ability to execute on critical plays on both sides of the ball. Right tackle Toby Weathersby battled heat-related headaches, forcing true freshman Austin Deculus to fill in beside true freshman right guard Ed Ingram. Wide receiver Russell Gage had 52 rushing yards, including a 30 yard touchdown run late in the first quarter for the first score of the game. The Tigers used the jet sweep to their advantage early, attacking the Gator defense on the edge with 83 yards on their first four sweeps. "Third down for defense has been our strong suit".

The snap and hold on the potential tying extra point were not clean, and kicker Eddy Pineiro pulled the kick to the left.

The Tigers answered with a field goal of their own.

Just before the half, Connor Culp matched the Gators field goal by splitting the uprights with a 38-yard attempt. LSU led 7-3 with 4:01 left in the first half.

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.

Florida cornerback Duke Dawson will likely find himself in the National Football League here soon.

Florida responded immediately, thanks to a costly LSU penalty.

The Gators managed 302 total yards and ran the ball well (194 yards), but drives were sporadic at best, the damage done by 2-for-9 third-down efficiency and five LSU sacks.

The LSU band posted an explanation on its Facebook page Sunday, saying that the band has played at the end of the third quarter for the past several decades.
