Ware scores twice and LSU's defense dominates as No. 1 Tigers beat 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.
