With the injuries piling up to LSU's linebacker core, the Florida Gators were able to put together their best drive of the game and now lead 14-6 early in the fourth quarter.
Florida's opening drive out of the half didn't get very far but when they got the ball back, they'd finally catch a break. Injuries to Kwon Alexander (ankle) and Kevin Minter (cramps) had the Tigers reeling and the Gators took advantage, moving 85 yards in eight plays. RB Mike Gillislee would then easily slash through LSU's front seven for a 12-yard rushing touchdown to put Florida ahead 7-6.
LSU's responded well with QB Zach Mettenberger finding WR Odell Beckham for a 56-yard strike. But upon further review, Beckham actually fumbled at the end of the play and the ball was given back to Florida on their own 23.
And for the second consecutive drive, Gillislee ate LSU's backup linebackers alive compiling 45 yards on the possession including a 12-yard score.
The Gators now lead 14-6 with a little under 11 minutes left in the contest but LSU just converted a long third down and are driving.
