The Florida Gators aren't having a great day on the field against the UL-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns, but they've managed to extend their lead to 13-3 as they enter the fourth quarter.
Caleb Sturgis made a chip shot 21-yard field goal on Florida's first drive of the second half to extend their lead to 13-3. However, ULL took their next drive 77 yards in nine plays before Alonzo Harris punched it into the end zone from two yards out to make it 13-10. The turning point of the game may have been on the next drive, where Kyle Christy had his punt blocked, and Blake Comminie returned it 22 yards for a touchdown to give the Ragin' Cajuns a 17-13 lead.
Jeff Driskel has left the game with an apparent injury, and Jacoby Brissett is playing in his place. Driskel is 13-or-18 for 98 yards and a touchdown, and also has 77 rushing yards.
