LSU remains undefeated with 42-28 win over Florida

Florida’s playoff dreams may have died Saturday night, but LSU’s are still very much alive.

The No. 5 Tigers took out the No. 7 Gators 42-28 before a typically enthusiastic Death Valley crowd that lived up its reputation. It was LSU’s 2nd victory over a top 10 team and just like the first, against Texas, it was tense, physical and well-earned.

The Tigers and Gators traded blows for the better part of 3 quarters until the Tigers’ defense finally started to impose its will. LSU forced consecutive punts, giving Joe Burrow the opportunity to drive for a go-ahead score, and Derek Stingley essentially sealed it with a diving interception in the end zone.

Those better-late-than-never defensive stands gave LSU just enough cushion to get to 6-0 and state its case to be No. 1 in the country.

Burrow finished with 3 TD passes, the final one a 54-yard dagger to a streaking Ja’Marr Chase down the right sideline to account for the final margin.
