That was some game, and I am a sad Gator Fan. Florida led for all but the last minute of that game, and I'm sure LSU was really sweating it. A couple turnovers by Florida (interception and fumble) shifted the momentum and Florida couldn't get it back. Both teams looked great, and both are arguably the top teams in the nation. (Meaning LSU is undoubtedly #1, and the argument could be made for Florida to be in the top 5, although a 4-2 record isn't that hot).

The Florida team that played LSU is certainly not the same team that played Auburn, or Ole Miss. They looked lazy, and the play calling was horrible for those two games - if Florida were 5-1 right now, things would be a bit different.

Les Miles did play to win, but he took some serious gambles, going for the 4th downs, the challenge, etc... He was lucky for many of them, but they paid off and won the game.

Florida could very well play LSU again in the SEC Championship - they could still get the SEC again - ranked 13th as of Oct. 7th.

Go Gators.
