LSU Falls To Florida, 27-19

(AP) Lamical Perine scored twice on short runs, including one after a trick play in the fourth quarter, and Florida beat LSU.

Brad Stewart's 25-yard interception return for a touchdown - the first pick Joe Burrow has thrown this season - essentially sealed the victory for the Gators (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference).

Florida scored all its points after 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow became the sixth player to be inducted into the school's ring of honor. With Tebow watching much of the game from the sideline, Florida looked a little like a championship contender.

A week after Florida beat Mississippi State with a double pass, Feleipe Franks handed off to seldom-used tight end Lucas Krull, slipped around the right end mostly unnoticed and caught a 15-yard pass from Krull that set up Perine's second score.

It immediately followed LSU's go-ahead drive that featured two long runs from Nick Brossettte. Brossette ran for 79 yards on the drive, including a 2-yard plunge that put the Tigers (5-1, 2-1) up 19-14 with 8:48 to play.
