No. 1 LSU overmatches No. 17 Florida, 41-11

      BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Spencer Ware rushed for 109 yards and
two scores, each of LSU's quarterbacks passed for touchdowns, and
the No. 1 Tigers comfortably defeated 17th-ranked Florida 41-11 on
Saturday.

      Jarrett Lee gave the Tigers (6-0, 3-0 SEC) the lead for good on
their second offensive play, hitting Rueben Randle deep over the
middle for a 46-yard touchdown. Jordan Jefferson used a jump pass|to Mitch Joseph for another score.

      LSU's fast, fierce defense was too much for Florida (4-2, 2-2),
which started freshman Jacoby Brissett at quarterback because of
injuries to senior John Brantley and freshman Jeff Driskel.

      Brissett was intercepted twice on deep throws, once each by
safety Brandon Taylor and star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu.
