Florida plans in-game tribute to late local legend Tom Petty

  • Videos on Twitter showed the crowd of 90,000 at the University of Florida v Louisiana State University football game on Saturday with their arms around each other swaying to the song

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

Linebacker Devin White batted down a fourth-down pass in Florida territory late in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.

LSU made strides and got the end result it badly needed with the win.

LSU on defense held the Gators to a field goal the first time they got inside the 5.

LSU opened the second half with a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive, capped by Etling's touchdown pass to Carter.

LSU ran similar plays through the game with three wideouts combining for 10 carries and 105 rushing yards.

"Just gritty", LSU quarterback Danny Etling said.

After a dismal first half that served as a stark reminder the Gators will continue to experience bouts of poor offensive play, McElwain's team was on the verge of tying the score with 1:45 remaining in the third quarter on Lamical Perine's second touchdown. "We just have to get better, going forward with that".

LSU (4-2, 1-1 SEC) was limited to 36 yards of offense in the fourth quarter, but picked up two crucial first downs on a drive that began with less than seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

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. The ground game is stellar, but until the passing game shows a pulse, it might not be enough for UF. 90,000 people all singing "I Won't Back Down" as they went into the 4th was by far the coolest thing I saw yesterday. LSU WR Derrick Dillon was disqualified in the first quarter after being called for targeting. Against Troy, the Tigers started two freshmen — right guard Ed Ingram and right tackle Saahdiq Charles — on the offensive line for the first time since 1986.

LSU's commitment to running the ball helped solved a lot of issues this week - namely cutting back on turnovers - and helped the Tigers manage a game they couldn't afford to lose control of.
