No. 16 LSU was unable to score a touchdown in the final seconds as the Tigers lose to No. 23 Florida 16-10 in Tiger Stadium.

This long anticipated game was originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 8, but was postponed due to Hurricane Matthew.

The game started off with high drama, as the two schools were involved in a scuffle during pregame warmups. Junior running back Leonard Fournette initally was not expected to play, appearing in a warmup suit during pregame. After the scuffle, in which he was shoved, Fournette informed Orgeron that he wanted to play.
