Florida's Duke Dawson hits LSU WR in the face

Florida's Duke Dawson hits LSU WR in the face

The decision to move the game instead of reschedule it rankled the Gators, who eventually won 16-10 at Tiger Stadium.

Linebacker Devin White ended Florida's hopes when he batted down a fourth down pass by Gator quarterback Felipe' Franks.

LSU stayed with their game plan in the second half.

"We tried to get it situated, but obviously it wasn't handled the right way", Clark said.

Did LSU get what it deserved?

Connor Culp booted a 38 yard field goal in the second quarter, and Danny Etling threw a 2 yard touchdown pass to tight end/F back Tory Carter early in the third quarter. The Gators marched 75 yards on seven plays after Lamical Perine punched in from two yards out for a 17-10 score.

The skinny: Florida just lost at home to a LSU team killed by Mississippi State 37-7 and beaten by Troy.

The LSU band posted an explanation on its Facebook page Sunday, saying that the band has played at the end of the third quarter for the past several decades.

Perine keyed the drive with a 23 yard rush, after which he earned 15 more on an Arden Key late hit.

Derrius Guice remembers what you said, Jim McElwain. We were prepared. We knew they were going to come in with everything and they did. Gage had 52 yards on six carries.

This week has been tumultuous to say the least around the LSU program, with players-only meetings, and under-fire Athletic Director Joe Alleva holding a skull session with Orgeron and both coordinators.

Following LSU's 17-16 win over Florida on Saturday, the LSU running back took to his Twitter account to ask the Florida coach a simple question.

NOTES: Florida K Eddy Pineiro's 25-yard field goal accounted for the Gators' only points of the first half. The ground game is stellar, but until the passing game shows a pulse, it might not be enough for UF.

And wide receiver Derrick Dillon was ejected from the game in the opening period for a targeting block.

NEXT UP: No. 13 Auburn (5-1, 3-0 SEC) will play at LSU on Saturday at a time and on a television network to be determined.
