First half: Other than the one 70-yard drive to a field goal, Florida’s offense could do little right. The other possessions resulted in 65 yards of total offense.
Second half: The Gators had two really nice and very important touchdown drives that should have tied the game. After that, Florida managed only one first down the rest of the game.
For the game: The offensive woes continue for a team that looks good at times and then just awful at others.
First half: The Gators looked as if they had never seen a speed sweep before. LSU ran the play seven times and gained 89 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown.
Second half: Although LSU went right down the field to take a 17-3 lead at the start of the half, Florida’s defense did not give up any more points.
For the game: In the end, allowing only 17 points should be enough to win you a game. Florida still lacks creativity and maybe we saw why when the one trick play ended up as an intentional grounding penalty.
Special teams F
First half: Kickoff return game continues to be one of the worst in college football. Is anyone coaching it? At least the punt coverage issue seems to be solved.
Second half: Again, the punt coverage was really good. The wind seemed to play havoc with LSU’s punts and Brandon Powell battled all game.
For the game: Sorry, but when you lose a game on a missed extra point, you get a failing grade. The truth is that Florida’s not getting much from its special teams this season.
Forget the Troy game. That had nothing to do with any of this. Florida’s a flawed team that can’t afford mistakes if it is going to win games no matter where they are played.
