LSU made it 17-3 on the first drive of the second half. Guice played most of the game. Florida's defense has taken a big step back from last season, and the turnovers must come to negate the drop-off. "So, I credit my offensive line for that job, and getting those touchdowns". That's nearly unthinkable. Freshman Malik Davis continues to be sensational, carrying 14 times for 90 yards.
Saturday's game could have gone the Gators' way, but it didn't because LSU simply wouldn't let it. Pineiro's extra point was good, 17-10.
Georgia vs. Vanderbilt: Tim McGraw said "the Bulldogs would run it down Vandy's throat", and all the pickers agreed with a Georgia win. Freshman safety Shawn Davis stood flat-footed, watching the play unfold and not reacting until it was too late.
UF coach Jim McElwain knew the question was coming after the game, smiling and shaking his head as soon as he heard the words "jet sweep".
-Duke Catalon, Houston, ran for 177 yards and two TDs to help the Cougars beat SMU 35-22. Or at least as impressive as possible in a crushing loss. "Guys who can go have got to go". Freshman cornerback Marco Wilson got picked by a receiver. I am sure there are others worthy of post-third quarter playings, but this one is great, and it sends the right kind of message heading into the final 15 minutes. "They worked their butts off throughout the week". So did the Tigers players, who were grilled any time they were around the media. "Not too many dropped balls, if any".
The Tigers sacked Felipe Franks five times, as the Florida freshman quarterback finished 10-of-16 passing for 108 yards. Sophomore Josh Hammond was UF's leading receiver with three catches for 29 yards. Franks 12-yard run to the 4. Pass interference on Florida's CJ Henderson puts the ball at the 24. That trio accounted for 105 of LSU's 216 rushing yards, while Derrius Guice and Darrell Williams pounded and grinded for a combined 85 on traditional plays.
LSU avenged last year's loss to Florida at Tiger Stadium.
Florida responded immediately, thanks to a costly LSU penalty. Iowa State's last win over a Top 25 team came against TCU in 2012.
The snap and hold on the potential tying extra point were not clean, and kicker Eddy Pineiro pulled the kick to the left. The Gators haven't been shut out since a 16-0 loss to Auburn on October 29, 1988.
