Rapid reaction and analysis of every SEC game on Saturday's slate. No. 7 Florida 27, Louisiana-Lafayette 20 OT? We dont need no stinking OT? Just when it looked like Florida was headed to a loss and then to overtime, the sun set on Louisiana-Lafayette of the Sun Belt. The Gators scored 14 points in the final 1:41 to avoid what would have been a monumental upset. This victory didnt have bearing on the SEC East race, and the Gators can still go to the conference title game. Theyll tape Auburn on their orange and blue shirts and root for the Tigers against Georgia tonight. Cajuns forget Swamp survival skills: Down a TD with a couple of minutes left? No problem. Starting quarterback Jeff Driskel was in the locker room with an ankle injury, so backup Jacoby Brissett promptly led the Gators to the tying TD, a 3-yard pass to Quinton Dunbar. The defense held, forced a punting situation, which turned into a TD for Florida. Loucheiz Purifoy blocked it, Jelani Jenkins caught it and easily scored with 2 seconds left. QB switching coming? There was no immediate word on the seriousness of Driskels injury, but Brissett was strong in relief, leading to what be a QB controversy at Florida. Driskel had an efficient game (13-of-16 for 98 yards and a TD) before he got hurt, but Brissett quickly moved the Gators for the game-tying TD. He finished 6-of-8 for 64 yards and a score.
