BATON ROUGE, La. -- We are finally down done here and LSU is done with its domination of the Gators with a 41-11 performance.
The Tigers used a stout running game led by Spencer Ware and a suffocating defense to send Florida home with its second straight loss.
Florida's offense went nowhere fast, starting true freshman Jacoby Brissett for the injured John Brantley and Jeff Driskel. While Brissett didn't do a lot of throwing Saturday, he did connect with Andre Debose for a 65-yard touchdown.
But that wasn't nearly enough as LSU just had its way with Florida's offensive and defensive lines. LSU became the second straight opponent to put up more than 200 yards rushing on Florida's defense and Ware and Alfred Blue combined for three touchdowns on the ground.
The Tigers seemed to call off the dogs in the third, but came revving back in the fourth with 14 more points.
