LSU Band Denies Trying To Ruin Florida's Tom Petty Tribune

Practice was all about that. "We started off a little a slow this season, but all offenses struggle, all teams struggle with just little things".

For that matter, after the Tigers held on for a gutsy 17-16 victory, the LSU players "tribute" to the same fans was not something destined for a chapter of "Profiles in Sportsmanship". In the last four games, Auburn has won games by 14, 37, 39 and 19. "He tried to throw the ball behind me, and I jumped up and got it". The Gators didn't seem prepared for that kind of adjustment at all. This is the second consecutive week LSU (4-2, 1-1 SEC) will be shown on the network, following last week's win at Florida. It's hard to imagine that LSU will lose their second straight home game, but as an nearly touchdown underdog, it's hard to take LSU. The Gators got on the scoreboard with Pineiro's 25-yard field goal in the second quarter. "We gave it all we had all week". "That's what we've been missing".

Quarterback Feleipe Franks was making just his fourth start and facing just his second late-game situation with the Gators (3-2, 3-1 SEC).

Linebacker Devin White ended Florida's hopes when he batted down a fourth down pass by Gator quarterback Felipe' Franks. He out-wrestled cornerback Duke Dawson for the ball. LSU scored its first touchdown on such a sweep. "Not real happy about it obviously and neither are our guys". There were signs late in the game he can do it when he broke some tackles. Starting right tackle Toby Weathersby also left with an injury and did not return. True freshmen Saahdiq Charles and Austin Deculus replaced them.

"We lost three offensive linemen in the first half", Orgeron said. "One unit is not going win the game for us". "We're not going to blame anybody".

"Playing with heart, playing with grit and having some pride about yourself", Etling said when asked about the difference in the past two games.

"I really like where we're at, at the midway point", head coach Gus Malzahn said.

"No one blinked", Orgeron said.

I think both of these teams have major concerns heading into this game. "This was a complete team win".

LSU will have to keep from blinking Saturday.

Auburn is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 conference games, 4-0-1 in their last 6 October games, 3-1-1 in their last 5 games following a win, and 5-2 in their last 7 games on the road against a team with a winning home record.

"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.
