Florida falls to LSU following missed extra point

LSU at Florida: Scott Rabalais' top three thoughts

LSU vs Florida: Howard, McGraw and Herbstreit all picked LSU, saying the Tigers will play "angry", but Corso picked Florida for the win.

LSU stayed with their game plan in the second half.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron met Monday with 12 players - at least one from each position group - to hash things out, and he sent those players back to their position groups for another series of meetings.

Did LSU get what it deserved?

Etling play-faked and found a wide-open Tory Carter in the end zone, a touchdown set up by a 44-yard Etling-to-Chark connection earlier in the drive.

Franks could not jumpstart the offense on the final drive and misfired on a fourth-down pass attempt that sealed the win for LSU.

Sports Illustrated projects Oklahoma State to play Texas A&M in a bowl
Texas A&M is unranked and still trying to live down its epic collapse in its season-opener at UCLA. He didn't account for a touchdown, but led the Aggies in rushing with 95 yards and passed for 159.

"They got what they deserved", said Florida coach Jim McElwain after last November's win.

Cody Worsham, editor of LSU's Tiger Rag, had his camera rolling when a packed house in Gainesville, Florida, turned thousands of voices into one, singing, "I Won't Back Down". "That we can come out with a win, sometimes it's not pretty, or when it's ugly out there we try and do our best".

The Gators managed 302 total yards and ran the ball well (194 yards), but drives were sporadic at best, the damage done by 2-for-9 third-down efficiency and five LSU sacks. It sure didn't hurt to catch some breaks, especially when Florida kicker Eddie Pineiro missed badly on an extra point that would have tied the game in the third quarter. Gage had 52 yards on six carries. Given the team's tumultuous week, it hardly was taunting.

NOTES: Florida K Eddy Pineiro's 25-yard field goal accounted for the Gators' only points of the first half. Etling came into the game completing 20 percent of his passes under pressure. And just like that, Florida's young secondary let LSU take the lead on one of the Tigers' more predictable play calls.

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

Two weeks after a 30-point drubbing at Mississippi State — LSU's most lopsided setback in series history — the Tigers lost to a non-conference opponent at home for the first time since 2000.
