Les Miles secured his 100th win as head coach at LSU on Saturday night in Gainesville and it typified his time in Tiger Town. Twists and turns, especially in the 4th quarter, but in the end, the Tigers beat the Florida Gators 30-27.
The two teams came into this contest struggling offensively, but they combined to score 20 points in the 4th quarter. The final three points came off the leg of Colby Delahoussaye, who drilled a 50 yard field goal with 3 seconds left to give the Tigers a much needed win.
The field goal was set up by a Ricky Jefferson interception and a 23-yard return to the Florida 36-yard line. That was one of two chances Florida had to win the game in the 4th quarter. Florida's Tevin Westbrook also dropped a potential go-ahead touchdown catch with about a minute left.
While Florida failed to make plays, LSU made some. The Tigers trailed 24-20 late in the 4th quarter and faced 3rd-and-25 with the ball at the Florida 33-yard line. But Anthony Jennings connected with Travin Dural for a 41-yard pass play. Two plays later, Jennings threw an 11-yard TD pass to Dural, who made a one-handed grab for a 27-24 lead.
Jennings played the entire game and was 10-of-21 for 110 yards, zero interceptions, and one touchdown.
Leonard Fournette was the big offensive star, as he had 140 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
The Tigers defense had a good performance. They forced three turnovers and Florida was just 2-of-12 on 3rd down.
LSU will now get ready to play Kentucky, who defeated ULM 48-14 on Saturday. The Wildcats are 5-and-1 overall on the season.
