Florida's Duke Dawson hits LSU WR in the face

LSU at Florida: Scott Rabalais' top three thoughts

After the clock struck zero, Louisiana State players sprinted toward an end zone and started doing the "Gator Chomp".

Given the team's tumultuous week, this was hardly taunting. It was a sigh of relief.

The LSU Football team showed resilience as the Tigers held on for a 17-16 victory over No. 21 Florida on Saturday afternoon in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

After a dismal first half that served as a stark reminder the Gators will continue to experience bouts of poor offensive play, McElwain's team was on the verge of tying the score with 1:45 remaining in the third quarter on Lamical Perine's second touchdown.

Nadal will play Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov who eliminated Roberto Bautista-Agut 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-2 in a tough three-set duel. The 12th-seeded Kvitova will next face either Svitolina or Caroline Garcia in the semifinals.

Pineiro had made the first 46 extra points of his career.

Still, LSU looked nothing like it did the previous week.

And Saturday's loss against LSU was just the latest example.

The win prevented LSU from dropping to 0-2 in SEC play and holding a.500 record at the midway point of the season. And finished the week with a victory.

Three groups of diplomats were taken to three different areas on Monday, said Ye Htut, district administrator of Maungdaw in Rakhine.

"Playing with heart, playing with grit and having some pride about yourself", Etling said when asked about the difference in the past two games. "We can't focus on this last game". There was no energy on the sideline. But as the 4th quarter was about to start, LSU's band decided they were just going to play whatever generic ass song college bands play in between quarters.

"We wanted to have energy, be upbeat on the sideline, have some fun out there, have each other's back and get a win", Etling added. "We need to come back and have a good week". Following Perine's second touchdown of the afternoon, kicker Eddy Pineiro, who hadn't missed an extra point in 13 tries this season, hooked it left. Giving up a 30-yard, untouched touchdown scamper to LSU receiver Russell Gage in the first quarter was not and letting LSU fullback Tory Carter get wide open for a touchdown catch near the goal line were not.

The Tigers (4-2, 1-1) ran out the final seconds and picked up a huge win.

Georgia vs. Vanderbilt: Tim McGraw said "the Bulldogs would run it down Vandy's throat", and all the pickers agreed with a Georgia win.

Police believe she received the drugs after they were shipped to her old address, which the dealers knew would be vacant. Investigators are now working to figure out who sent them and who was supposed to pick them up.

The Gators are now squarely behind the Georgia Bulldogs (6-0, 3-0 SEC) for first place in the SEC East with Georgia visiting Gainesville in two weeks. The Gators still haven't recovered a fumble. Gage had 52 yards on six carries. Josh Hammond and Brandon Powell were the leading pass-catchers with 29 yards each yards.
