LSU Remains Unbeaten, 35-28
LSU kicker Trent Domingue ran for a 16 yard touchdown on a fake field goal with 10.40 remaining for the winning score as #6 LSU remained unbeaten with a 35-28 win over previously unbeaten Florida at Tiger Stadium Saturday night.
The touchdown capped an 11-play, 75 yard drive after Florida's Antonio Callaway had tied the score on a 72 yard punt return late in the third quarter.
Leonard Fournette, who led the Tigers with 180 yards on 31 attempts and two touchdowns, gained 45 yards on the ground on the winning drive. The Tigers' drive stalled and on fourth down, Domingue took a backward pass on the left side and raced untouched to the end zone and the Tigers' defense held the rest of the way.
Florida (6-1, 4-1 SEC) got on the board first after a muffed punt gave the Gators the ball at the LSU 13 yard line. Florida quarterback Treon Harris hit Jake McGee with a four yard pass to give the Gators a 7-0 lead.
But LSU (6-0, 4-0) had a big second quarter, scoring 21 unanswered points on touchdown runs of two and four yards by Fournette and a nine yard pass from Brandon Harris to Malachi Dupre. Florida answered back as Harris hit McGee again for a 19 yard strike, but LSU's Harris found Dupre again for a 50 yard score with just 15 seconds remaining in the half as the Tigers took a 28-14 lead into the locker room.
Kelvin Taylor scored on a two yard run, capping a 66 yard drive in the third quarter as Florida cut the lead to seven, and Callaway tied it with the long punt return.
Florida failed to score on its final three possessions.
Brandon Harris had a solid night for LSU, completing 13-19 passes for 202 yards and the two touchdowns to Dupre. Treon Harris was 17-32 for 271 yards and two scores.
LSU wound up with 423 yards compared to 326 for Florida. The Tigers' defense held the Gators to just 55 yards rushing on 31 attempts.
