Talk about a Cinderella story, LSU upset the Gators because of a lost shoe.
Number 11 from Florida was excited about his shoelace tackle which ripped off the cleat and he threw the shoe in celebration for stopping LSU on third down.
The penalty during LSU’s final possession kept their drive alive. The Florida player was called for throwing an LSU player’s cleat. The penalty allowed the Tigers to get into field goal range. The kick was clutch and good. The score 37-34 with :30 on the clock. Florida moved the ball well, but not close enough for the kicker to nail a personal best.
Florida’s kicker missed the 51 yard field goal wide left in the final seconds to lose to the 4-5 LSU Tigers…extinguishing any playoff hopes.
Earlier in the game, a circus interception catch paved the way for the upset.
The Gators will meet #1 Alabama in the SEC title game next weekend. Bama destroyed LSU two weeks ago 55-17.
