LSU ends skid by upsetting Florida

- Star wire services

Tyrion Davis-Price rushed for an LSU-record 287 yards and three touchdowns, and the Tigers’ banged-up defence came up with four intercepti­ons in a 49-42 victory over No. 20 Florida at Baton Rouge. The Gators had been favoured by 111⁄2 points. The less-than-capacity crowd at Death Valley came in with low expectatio­ns after unranked LSU had dropped backto-back games against Auburn and Kentucky, fuelling speculatio­n that coach Ed Orgeron’s job was in jeopardy. In other action, Georgia, playing as the No. 1-ranked team for the first time since 2008, beat No. 11 Kentucky 30-13.
