No. 12 LSU beats No. 14 Florida 33-29

By Jeff Shepard – bio | email

GAINESVILLE, FL (AP) - Jarrett Lee tossed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Terrence Toliver with 6 seconds left after LSU kept its final drive alive with a successful fake field goal, and the 12th-ranked Tigers pulled out another wild victory, 33-29 against No. 14 Florida on Saturday night.

With 35 seconds remaining, LSU (6-0, 4-0) lined up for a game-tying, 52-yard field goal, but holder Derek Helton threw a no-look pitch over his head to place-kicker Josh Jasper. The ball bounced, Jasper scooped it up on a hop and ran for the first down.

The play was reviewed to determine if it was a forward pass, which would have been incomplete and ended LSU's hopes, but the ruling on the field stood.

Lee hit Toliver for a 28-yard gain on the next play to get down to the 3 and on the second fade to the corner, Toliver grabbed the game-winner.

The TD reception was also reviewed to see if Toliver had a foot down in bounds with control of the ball. It was upheld and Les Miles and the Tigers handed the Gators (4-2, 2-2) a second straight loss.
