No. 1 LSU Destroys the Florida Gators, 41-11

The Gators season has been left in shambles after two consecutive blowout losses to SEC West powers. A week after getting embarrassed by Alabama, Florida succumbed to the superior opposition of LSU, blown out 41-11.

Florida was down to their third string quarterback, Jacoby Brissett after John Brantley and Jeff Driskell were both injured against the Crimson Tide. Brissett, a true freshman regarded as the #3 quarterback available this year, did a decent job but his Gators were unable to sustain drives against the top notch LSU defense.

Brissett finished with 8-for-14 for 94 yards with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. Brissett did display a powerful arm but hasn’t developed the chemistry with his receivers.

LSU pounded the soft middle of the Florida defense, running up 239 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground. The Tigers were led by Spencer Ware who rushed for 110 yards and 2 scores.

Alfred Blue would add another 70 yards and a score.

Reuben Randall gave the Gators secondary fits, hauling in 4 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown.

The Gators got a little more done on the ground this week, 113 yards total, but it wasn’t enough to sustain scoring drives against the vaunted Tigers defense.

Florida falls to 4-2 (2-2 in the SEC) and it doesn’t get any easier as the Gators will take on the defending national champion Auburn Tigers.


Gators try to crawl back into it, but LSU answers

With 12:20 left to play, top ranked LSU is in full control with a 34-11 lead over the Florida Gators.

Florida freshman QB Jacoby Brissett threw his first career touchdown pass, hitting Andre Dubose for a 65 yard touchdown pass.

Brissett is now 8-of-12 for 94 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 int.

Meanwhile, LSU has begun passing the ball, as Jarrett Lee connected on a few passes to set up a 23 yard field goal by Drew Allerman.

They just answered the Florida touchdown with one of their own, adding insult to injury with the “Tim Tebow” fake sneak jump pass by Jordan Jefferson to Mitch Joseph to extend the lead.

Florida gets the ball back with the odds significantly against them.


LSU with a big lead at the Half

Top Ranked LSU has shown no mercy on the Gators decimated QB situation as they raced to a 24-0 lead and hold a 24-3 lead at the half.

LSU tailback Spencer Ware has pounded the Florida defense to the tune of 64 yards on 12 carries with two touchdowns.

Tigers starting QB Jarrett Lee has only attempted four passes, completing one for a touchdown.

Florida third string QB Jacoby Brissett, forced into action due to injuries to starting QB John Brantley and backup Jeff Driskell, has struggled to move the Gators offense against the Tigers’ elite defense.

Florida has limited Brissett’s opportunities, having him alternate with slash QB Trey Burton. The Gators have tried to focus on running the football, keeping on the ground for 23 attempts.

LSU has 211 yards of total offense to Florida’s 120.

Brissett has the games only turnover, overthrowing a pass that was intercepted by Brandon Taylor.
