LSU had multiple chances to beat Florida on Saturday, claim a huge rivalry victory against the Gators and keep its Sugar Bowl hopes alive under interim coach Ed Orgeron.

But Florida's defense, as banged up as its been this year, rose to the occasion and won the SEC East with a fourth-down, goal-line stand with three seconds remaining to seal a 16-10 win in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

LSU got a lot of credit from fans and pundits alike for opening up its offense after the dismissal of Les Miles, but the play-calling in the game's final minute lacked creativity. Leonard Fournette sat on the sideline with a towel over his head while running back Derrius Guice was stuffed at the goal line on fourth down.

To review:

First and Goal at the Florida 7: LSU runs with Guice, 2 yards

Second and Goal at the Florida 5: LSU runs up the middle with Guice again, 4 yards

Third and Goal at the Florida 1: LSU runs up the middle with fullback J.D. Moore, no gain

Fourth and Goal at the Florida 1: LSU runs up the middle with Guice, no gain, fumble

The win gives Florida back-to-back SEC East title for the first time since 2008-09, and a Gators defense missing its top three tacklers some much needed confidence entering the Florida State game next week.
