VICTORY IN THE SWAMP! Defense Keys Huge Win, 17-16

VIDEO: Football fans belt out new fight song in honor of Tom Petty and it's a giant middle finger to the NFL

The Tigers suggested Florida was hoping to cancel the game or avoid playing it on the road.

A week after getting embarrassed at home in a 24-21 loss to Troy, LSU had to prove it made more than minuscule improvements ahead of its trip to Florida.

This week has been tumultuous to say the least around the LSU program, with players-only meetings, and under-fire Athletic Director Joe Alleva holding a skull session with Orgeron and both coordinators.

Only a few seconds were shown during the CBS broadcast. Quieting the critics, even if it's for a week, has to be sweet relief.

LSU avenged last year's loss to Florida at Tiger Stadium.

LSU's success running the ball made quarterback Danny Etling's job that much easier. The Gators eventually held, forcing a punt.

At the end of the third quarter of every game, Florida plays the song "We Are the Boys from Old Florida". Against Troy, the Tigers started two freshmen — right guard Ed Ingram and right tackle Saahdiq Charles — on the offensive line for the first time since 1986.

Offensive balance on the ground; an identity established? The Gators (3-2, 3-1 SEC), lacking explosive playmakers in the passing game, methodically tried to get something going, but ended up failing on fourth-and-3 at its own 25, giving the ball back to LSU on downs. That trio accounted for 105 of LSU's 216 rushing yards, while Derrius Guice and Darrell Williams pounded and grinded for a combined 85 on traditional plays. The defensive stop preserved the win for the Tigers.

Another true freshman scored the second LSU touchdown, when tight end/F-back Tory Carter caught a third-and-goal pass from the 2, which was set up by a 47-yard pass from Etling to senior wideout D.J. Chark.

LSU vs Florida: Howard, McGraw and Herbstreit all picked LSU, saying the Tigers will play "angry", but Corso picked Florida for the win.

Sometimes better to be lucky ... Derrick Dillon gained 30 yards on jet sweep run around the right side on the second LSU play from scrimmage.
