Tyrion Davis-Price rushed for a school-record 287 yards and three touchdowns as LSU upset No. 20 Florida 49-42 Saturday afternoon in Baton Rouge.

Max Johnson threw three touchdown passes to Jaray Jenkins, including the game winner on fourth-and-goal from the one with 3:30 left in the game to lead the Tigers (4-3, 2-2 SEC).

Anthony Richardson relieved an ineffective Emory Jones and rallied the Gators (4-3, 2-3) with four second-half touchdown drives.

On the first possession of the third quarter Dwight McGlothern picked off Jones and ran 37 yards for a touchdown that increased the Tigers’ lead to 28-13.

Richardson replaced Jones on the next possession and ran 5 yards for a touchdown and a two-point conversion that cut the lead to 28-21.

Three plays later, Davis-Price ran 40 yards for a touchdown and a 35-21 lead.

Richardson threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Justin Shorter and an 11-yarder to Dameon Pierce to tie the score at 35 at the end of the third quarter.

Davis-Price ran 25 yards for a touchdown on the second play of the fourth quarter to give the Tigers a 42-35 lead.

Richardson answered with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Copeland.

Pierce’s 7-yard touchdown run gave Florida a 6-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

LSU drove 90 yards and Davis-Price ran 18 yards for a touchdown that gave the Tigers a 7-6 lead.

Micah Basketville intercepted Emory Jones and returned the ball 54 yards to the Gators 28. On the next play Johnson threw a touchdown pass to Jenkins for a 14-6 lead.

On the ensuing possession Jay Ward intercepted Richardson and returned 26 yards to the Florida 21.

Johnson and Jenkins teamed on a 5-yard touchdown pass that increased the lead to 21-6.

The Gators drove 77 yards in the final 29 seconds of the second quarter as Jones connected with Shorter on a 42-yard Hail Mary completion for a touchdown that trimmed the lead to 21-13 at halftime.
