The week of October 6, 2014 will go down as one anything but normal in the history of the Florida Gators football program.

After a week which started with accusations of sexual assault by freshman quarterback Treon Harris, then ended with a withdraw of those same accusations on Friday, the Gators (3-2, 2-2 SEC) had a lofty task against the LSU Tigers (5-2, 1-2 SEC), who had been known to play Florida tough in The Swamp. Looking to secure their first win in conference play, LSU put faith in their running game, which paid dividends. Freshman running back Leonard Fournette had 27 carries for 140 yards and 2 touchdowns.

The game was an even matchup statistically. Florida had 306 yards of total offense, while LSU had 305. However, a bobbled Florida pass late would be picked off by LSU, giving the Tigers field position inside Florida territory. Colby Delahoussaye would go on to hit a 50-yard field goal to give LSU the first win in The Swamp since 2010.

    3 turnovers!! It’s a broken record: Muschamp playing not to lose(first and goal from the 2, and we settle for a FG- he questioned it himself in the press conference .. .. And Driskel is what he is: a turnover machine. Our head coach is now 26-19 and has been given enough time. He will NEVER win big in the SEC with his conservative approach and sticking with a QB like this.
