Luck runs out for Jim McElwain, Florida in homecoming loss to LSU

LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron

Down the road, though, when the Tigers have to fight from behind or try to win a game in the closing minutes, there has to be some willingness to let the quarterback make plays with his arm.

"We couldn't get the plays in so once we got the plays in we had to hurry up and rush", Perine said.

The skinny: Hammering Franks isn't fully warranted because Florida's receivers appeared to get owned by LSU's secondary. The Tigers opened the scoring with a 30-yard touchdown run by receiver Russell Gage late in the first quarter. But the Gators (3-2, 1-1) answered, getting the first of consecutive TD runs by Lamical Perine.

"Just gritty", LSU quarterback Danny Etling said.

UF coach Jim McElwain knew the question was coming after the game, smiling and shaking his head as soon as he heard the words "jet sweep".

LSU finished with 216 yards on the ground, with Derrius Guice returning from injury to rush for 50 yards. "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". LSU (4-2, 1-1 SEC) built a two-touchdown lead early in the second half, took advantage of a missed PAT and held the nationally-ranked Gators scoreless in the fourth quarter for the key SEC win.

KERRYON JOHNSON carries 28 times for 204 yards and three touchdowns to highlight Auburn's 44-23 victory over Mississippi. The SEC eventually forced both schools to work out a date, and the game was played in Baton Rouge. Eddy Pineiro connected on the 25-yard field goal, 7-3. Etling came into the game completing 20 percent of his passes under pressure. That's gone now. The Gators face losable games against Texas A&M, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida State.

LSU WR Derrick Dillon was ejected at the 5:43 mark for targeting and missed the remainder of the game. White led the Tigers with 13 tackles including a sack.

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.
