SCORING RECAP: LSU 41, Florida 11

How the Tigers and Gators scored Saturday in the most lopsided LSU victory against Florida since 1971.


First quarter

Rueben Randle: Broke the seal Saturday with a 46-yard touchdown grab from Jarrett Lee.
LSU – Rueben Randle 46 pass from Jarrett Lee (Drew Alleman kick), 11:55. DRIVE:  2 plays-50 yards-44 seconds. KEY PLAYS: The Tigers’ defense punched the Gators in the mouth on the opening series to set up a short field. On second down, Lee faked a handoff, dropped straight back and floated a perfect throw to Randle, who ran a deep post and caught the ball in stride for a quick-strike TD. LSU 7, Florida 0


LSU – Spencer Ware 2 run (Alleman kick), 6:40. DRIVE:  8-56-3:26. KEY PLAYS: Another quick three-and-out for the Gators gave LSU a short field again and this time the Tigers battered Florida on the ground with Ware popping the cork with a 13-yard run and Alfred Blue gashing the Gators for 13 and 11 yards on consecutive plays to move the ball to the 3. Two plays later, Ware sliced in from the 2. LSU 14, Florida 0


Second quarter

LSU – Alleman 35 FG, 13:22. DRIVE: 8-29-3:48. KEY PLAYS: LSU’s defense stuffed Trey Burton on a fake-punt run and the Tigers took possession on their side of the field at the 47. The Tigers nearly scored a third TD in as many possessions when punter Brad Wing bolted down the left sideline on a run out of punt formation 52 yards to the end zone. But Wing was flagged for taunting on the run, moving the ball back to the 23-yard-line. LSU couldn’t sputtered from there and had to settle for three. LSU 17, Florida 0


LSU – Ware 8 run (Alleman kick), 6:50. DRIVE: 2-45-43 seconds. KEY PLAYS: Jordan Jefferson and Russell Shepard struck for their biggest plays of the season with a 37-yard connection to gobble up most of the yardage and Ware bulled in from the 8 for his second TD. LSU 24, Florida 0


FLORIDA – Caleb Sturgis 34 FG, :00.8. DRIVE: 14-59-6:42. KEY PLAYS: After scratching out only 21 yards on 12 snaps on their first five series, the Gators finally found a rhythm behind Mike Gillislee, who rushed seven times for 35 yards. Florida converted its first two third downs of the half to fuel the long drive, but stalled and sent Sturgis out to get some points on the scoreboard. LSU 24, Florida 3


Third quarter

LSU – Alleman 23 FG, 4:40. DRIVE: 10-51-5:06. KEY PLAYS: After an exchange of punts to begin the half, the Tigers offense finally showed some life again when Jefferson rifled a 22-yard pass to DeAngelo Peterson to erase second-and-19. A facemask penalty on Florida on a short Jefferson run moved the ball to the 27, and two more flags on the Gators set up first-and-goal from the 6. Florida buckled down from there, forcing Alleman’s second kick of the day. LSU 27, Florida 3


FLORIDA – Andre Debose 65 pass from Jacoby Brissett (Chris Rainey run), :40. DRIVE: 1-65-9 seconds. KEY PLAYS: LSU couldn’t convert a first down on third-and-1 and had to punt. On the first snap, Debose streaked down the left sideline past Morris Claiborne, who fell down on the play after forcing the receiver out of bounds, leaving Debose all by himself. Rainey ran the conversion in out of the wildcat. LSU 27, Florida 11


Fourth quarter

LSU – Mitch Joseph 2 pass from Jordan Jefferson (Alleman kick), 12:20. DRIVE: 6-81-3:20. KEY PLAYS: Lee and Randle fueled the drive with a 17-yard hookup on a crossing pattern to start it and then a picture-perfect 57-yard bomb that nearly reached the end zone. Jefferson entered with the ball at the 3 and on third down, he took a jab step toward the end zone out of the shotgun formation and jumped to throw to Joseph, a la Tim Tebow against the Tigers, circa 2006. LSU 34, Florida 11


Alfred Blue: Finished off LSU's scoring onslaught in the fourth quarter.

LSU – Alfred Blue 2 run (Alleman kick), 12:20. DRIVE: 11-76-6:39. KEY PLAYS: Blue was the workhorse, carrying the ball seven times for 43 yards on the march, bolstered by a 20-yard burst that was LSU’s longest scamper by a running back in the game. Lee also chipped in with a nice 21-yard completion to Kadron Boone as the Tigers simply wore the Gators down to provide the exclamation point on their most lopsided win against Florida since a 48-7 romp in 1971. LSU 41, Florida 11
