LSU Vs. Florida Final Score: Tigers Romp In Baton Rouge, 41-11

LSU dispatched Florida in convincing fashion in Tiger Stadium on Saturday, 41-11 and did so despite the traditional weirdness of a game involving Les Miles going almost entirely against the Tigers.

The fake punt for a touchdown by Brad Wing? Called back for an excessive celebration penalty. The blocked punt by the Gators' Solomon Patton? Too little, too late to swing the outcome. The receiver who went out of bounds and still caught a touchdown pass? Florida's Andre Debose. Heck, LSU even got its revenge for Tim Tebow's old jump pass, with Jordan Jefferson running it to perfection for a touchdown late in the game.

Truly, this was dominance by LSU, which rolled up 454 yards of total offense, splitting it evenly between the running game (239 yards) and the passing game (215), and held Florida to 213 yards of total offense.

Florida was hamstrung on offense, starting freshman Jacoby Brissett after injuries to John Brantley and Jeff Driskel forced both quarterbacks to watch this one, but the Tigers still limited them, keeping Chris Rainey in check and intercepting two Brissett passes. 12 Florida penalties for 89 yards didn't help, either.

With the win, LSU moves to 6-0 and 3-0 in the SEC. Florida falls to 4-2 and 2-2 in conference, and the Gators' withering October schedule only gets worse with a date at Auburn next week.

LSU Taunting Call Explained By SEC Supervisor Of Officials

The first major team to get hit with a taunting call that negated a touchdown was LSU, and the player in question was the punter. Just as we all predicted, right? Brad Wing scampered around the right edge on a fake punt, quickly extended his arms out to the side and bounded into the end zone for the score. Except it wasn't a score as officials took the touchdown away because of Wing's premature celebration.

LSU settled for a field goal as a result, but nobody can strip the memory of an Australian punter gliding down the sidelines and taunting Florida. But since this was a big deal, the SEC had to release a statement confirming the call was the right one.

I firmly contend Wing felt he was moving too fast and was simply deploying air brakes, thus rendering this call incorrect.

LSU Vs. Florida Score Update: Gators Get First Touchdown In Third Quarter

LSU still appears to have Florida comfortably in its rear view. But that might be how Florida gets back into this game. The Gators have tightened up on defense and used a big play on offense to cut the Tigers' lead to 27-11 entering the fourth quarter at Tiger Stadium.

A red zone stop by the Gators limited LSU to just a field goal early in the third quarter, and then Florida's Jacoby Brissett found Andre Debose on a bomb for a 65-yard touchdown pass. Chris Rainey squirmed into the end zone on the subsequent two-point conversion to pull the Gators within two possessions of the Tigers.

There's still probably too much work left to do for Florida to stage a massive rally, and penalties — 12 for 89 yards through the first three quarters — haven't helped the Gators. But they've flashed a little fight, which was more than they seemed capable of doing during their dismal start.

Florida Vs. LSU Halftime Score: Gators Get On Board, Trail Tigers

This is the best thing that can be said for Florida after the first half of its trek into Tiger Stadium: the Gators scored.

After LSU opened up a 24-0 lead — that could have been a 28-0 edge, if not for a touchdown on a fake punt brought back because of an excessive celebration penalty — the Gators put together a 14-play, 59-yard drive that Caleb Sturgis capped with a 34-yard field goal. Florida trails at halftime, 24-3, and the 21-point deficit isn't any more likely to be erased than the 24-point one was.

That's because LSU has been able to do virtually whatever it wants on offense. The Tigers have only completed two passes, but for 83 yards, and punter Brad Wing's 44-yard run only accounts for a little less than a third of the Tigers' 128 rushing yards.

Spencer Ware has 64 yards and two touchdowns on the ground for LSU.

LSU Vs. Florida Score Update: Tigers Rolling, Despite Nullified Fake Punt Touchdown

LSU is by far the better team on the field at Tiger Stadium today. And nothing, it seems, will save the Florida Gators.

A personal foul for unsportsmanlike conduct brought back a Chris Rainey run into LSU territory. After moving the ball to near midfield, a fake punt down 14-0 failed to move the chains for Florida in the first quarter.

And after forcing an LSU punt on the next possession, Florida topped its earlier futility by allowing LSU punter Brad Wing to race more than 50 yards on a fake punt for a touchdown. Luckily for the Gators, an excessive celebration penalty on Wing took the points off the points — the first such instance of college football's new excessive celebration rules doing so — and forced the Tigers to play offense and settle for a field goal to make the score 17-0.

Actually, come to think of it, that might have been the Gators' best moment, too.

LSU Vs. Florida Score: Tigers Go Up In A Blink

Florida came into LSU's Tiger Stadium with a completely green quarterback and a young defense. Given how LSU played on the first two drives of their SEC showdown, the Gators may be looking at a blowout before the first quarter is over.

After LSU forced a three-and-out that gave the Tigers great field position, Jarrett Lee found Reuben Randle for a 46-yard touchdown pass on LSU's second offensive play of the game, building an early 7-0 lead with little effort.

That was not the start that Will Muschamp likely wanted for his Gators, who have started true freshman Jacoby Brissett after both John Brantley and Jeff Driskel suffered ankle injuries against Alabama. But the Gators might not have much say in the matter against the extremely talented Tigers.

Florida Vs. LSU: Gators List Jeff Driskel, Jacoby Brissett, Tyler Murphy Atop QB Depth Chart

The Florida Gators released their game-day depth chart, but anyone hoping for clarification about their starting quarterback will be disappointed. As Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post noted on Twitter:

Florida depth chart lists starting QB as Jeff Driskel OR Jacoby Brissett OR Tyler Murphy. Clears up that mystery.
Oct 08 via txtFavoriteRetweetReply

 

Driskel was expected to start all week before reports of that he might be limited with an ankle injury. Brissett has yet to see action this year, but the team is apparently prepared to burn his redshirt no matter who starts -- ESPN's College Gameday reported earlier today that both Driskel and Brissett are expected to see action. Now Murphy, a redshirt freshman who dressed for every game in 2010 but never saw action, is technically in the mix, although the smart money is on this remaining a two-horse race between Driskel and Brissett.  

For analysis on what Driskel and Brissett will bring to the Gators' offense, read Andy Hutchins at Alligator Army. Here's a copy of the depth chart, courtesy of Lieser:

Jeff Driskel, Jacoby Brissett Both Expected To Play, According To Report

Rumors are swirling following a report from Channel 6 in Orlando that Jacoby Brissett, not Jeff Driskel, will start Saturday's game against LSU. Now, according to ESPN's College Gameday, both quarterbacks may see the field against the Tigers.

The team has yet to say anything official, and may not until game time, so sit tight. Driskel was expected to be the starter all week after John Brantley suffered a lower leg injury against Alabama last week. The team never confirmed a starter, however, and early Saturday it was revealed that Driskel is dealing with an ankle injury of his own.

Despite the lack of anything concrete, it sounds like Brissett, a true freshman, will burn his redshirt today. There had been rumors that Brissett had been climbing the depth chart anyway, so this could be a case of the Gators' coaching staff using Driskel's injury to promote the guy they want.

Be sure to head over to Alligator Army for more on the Gators' quarterback shuffle.
