Somehow, the Tigers held on for the 17-16 win.

Linebacker Devin White batted down a fourth-down pass in Florida territory late in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.

LSU responded to the negativity on Saturday with its biggest win of the young season. "We believed in each other and got back to work".

After the clock struck zero, LSU players sprinted toward an end zone and started doing the "Gator Chomp".

Connor Culp booted a 38 yard field goal in the second quarter, and Danny Etling threw a 2 yard touchdown pass to tight end/F back Tory Carter early in the third quarter. Russell Gage scored LSU's first touchdown and led the Tigers with 52 of the team's 216 rushing yards.

Gators defensive tackle Khairi Clark said defending sweeps was the responsibility of players along the edge of the defense and said UF's coaching staff made the issue a point of emphasis when the team was down 10-3 in the locker room at halftime.

"It was a tough week", LSU coach Ed Orgeron said in the post-game press conference. "That we can come out with a win, sometimes it's not pretty, or when it's ugly out there we try and do our best".

After a dismal first half that served as a stark reminder the Gators will continue to experience bouts of poor offensive play, McElwain's team was on the verge of tying the score with 1:45 remaining in the third quarter on Lamical Perine's second touchdown.

KERRYON JOHNSON carries 28 times for 204 yards and three touchdowns to highlight Auburn's 44-23 victory over Mississippi. Etling came into the game completing 20 percent of his passes under pressure. It was a back-and-forth game that seemed it could have gone either way.

And wide receiver Derrick Dillon was ejected from the game in the opening period for a targeting block.

The injury to Malone led to the Tigers playing with three true freshmen on the offensive line at times, which is a school record.

No. 12 Auburn 44, MS 23 • Kerryon Johnson rushed for 204 yards and three touchdowns to spark the host Tigers (5-0, 3-0) to victory.
