BATON ROUGE – The No. 5 LSU Tigers outlasted the No. 7 Florida Gators 42-28 before a sold-out crowd Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.
Both teams engaged in a slugfest exchanging touchdowns back and forth for most of the night.
After falling behind 28-21 in the third quarter, LSU scored a touchdown to tie the game.
It was the Tiger’s strong defense that forced Florida in punting situations in the second half.
The final blow was a 54-yard touchdown by LSU wide receiver Ja’marr Chase that put the Tigers up 42-28. LSU quarterback Joe Borrow had another top notch performance completing 21 of 24 passes for 293 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The 6-0 Tigers travel to 3-3 Mississippi State next week for another SEC showdown.
