Max Johnson throws three touchdown passes, and Tyrion Davis Price rushes for three more to keep No. 20 Florida 49-42. (3:09).
BATON ROUGE (La. LSU running back Tyrion Price set a school record of 287 rushing yards in a 49-42 victory over No. 20 Florida broke the 285-yard record set by Derrius Guice on Saturday.
Davis-Price entered the weekend with 287 total rushing yards for the season. He also ran for three touchdowns.
He claimed that Jake Peetz, the offensive coordinator, told him earlier this week that he would be prominently featured in the gameplan.
Davis-Price stated, "I told him that he should feed me." "He did, and the O-line was blocked. We came away with the W."
Davis-Price stated that it was a team effort.
He said, "I took it one day at time and worked my tail off every day."
Ed Orgeron, LSU's coach, said that he was pleased to see Davis-Price's work and the success of the offensive line pay off.
LSU's football team is thriving again, with the emergence of the running-game on Saturday. The Tigers lost both of their previous two games. Wideout Kayshon Boutte, cornerback Eli Ricks, and defensive linemen Ali Gaye were all among the many players who sustained season-ending injuries.
On Saturday, Max Johnson, the quarterback, threw for 133 yards with three touchdowns against the Gators. The LSU defense had to force four turnovers.
Ed Orgeron, LSU coach, has come under increasing criticism. He said that his team "came to fight today."
He said, "That's our motto." "We are going to fight. We will fight for the remainder of the season. One day at a.m. One game at a.m.
Orgeron gave credit to the coaching staff for the improvements they made this week.
He said, "There was a new energy around the football team." "I could feel that energy on Thursday. It was amazing.
He said, "This isn't about me. This is about the team. We must give them credit."
LSU's record improved to 4-3. Next Saturday, Ole Miss will take over.
