The Gators earn some recognition for their win over LSU.

The No. 10 Florida Gators were one of many teams to pull off upsets on Saturday, knocking off the No. 4 LSU Tigers, 14-6.

Coming with the win on Saturday is some recognition from within the conference. Running back Mike Gillislee has won SEC offensive player of the week and safety Matt Elam has won the conference's defensive player of the week.

Gillislee scored the only two touchdowns in the game on Saturday. Both scores came from 12 yards out and were a part of the 146 yards he tallied on 34 carries.

Elam had the play of the weekend in the game. It looked like LSU was going to score a third-quarter touchdown but Elam stripped the ball from Odell Beckham, Jr., which changed the momentum of the game.

Florida, who has now replaced LSU as the No. 4 team in the country, will travel to Vanderbilt on Saturday.
