LSU 33 UF 28
THis victory has caused a lot of controversy. After a hard faught game by both sides, LSU was down 28-27 with 1:42 remaining. It was 4th and about 2 and LSU faked a field goal to get to the one yard line of Florida. LSU would score a td on the next play and sealed the victory on a late INT. When asked why LSU went for it on 4th down when down by a point in field goal range, coach fpuent responded "we didnt think we could stop florida with 1:42 remaining. They only would have needed a field goal to win if we had made the field goal. So we tricked the field goal to give us a legitimate shot at the victory. Fortunately, it worked out." the Flordia coach was very displeased after the game. Hopefully this is a start of an intense rivalry.
The key to LSU's victory was florida turnovers and the smart play of LSU QB Jefferson.
Player of the game:
LSU HB Michael Ford: 22 carries for 96 yards and 2 touchdowns
LSU 20 Bama 17
My hat goes off to Coach JFunk, he played a great solid game. This game was intense throughout. LSU took an early 7-0 lead but Bame steamed back with an unstoppable running game and tied. After a field goal and a td, Bama lead 17-7 near the end of the 3rd qrter. However, LSU answered with a quick td. After a key defensive stop, LSU marched down and tied the game with 3:26 remaining. Following another key stop, LSU got the ball back on their own 1 with a minute and a half to go. LSU marched down 97 yards in that minute and half and kicked the game winning field goal as time expired. Great game overall.
Bama QB Star Jackson: 7-13 for 75 yards and 2 ints
Bama HB Jeramie Griffin: 30 carries for 185 yards and 1 td
LSU QB Jordan Jefferson: 14-22 for 181 yards and 1 td
LSU HB Michael Ford: 18 carries for 110 yards and 1 TD
LSU CB Patrick Peterson: 8 tackles and 2 ints
Great game fpuent. One play could have changed the game. You played great overall. Look forward to playing again.
