GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Mike Gillislee ran for a career-high 146 yards and two touchdowns, bringing Florida to life in the second half to beat LSU.
Led by Gillislee and a dominant defense, Florida's grind-it-out victory provided a signature win for coach Will Muschamp in his second season in Gainesville. It was the program's first win against a ranked team since beating rival Georgia in 2010.
The Gators (5-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) wore down the Tigers (5-1, 1-1) in the second half - no surprise because Florida has been doing that all season. Florida, which trailed 6-0 at halftime, also came from behind to beat Texas A&M and Tennessee on the road last month.
The Gators harassed quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who completed 11 of 25 passes for 161 yards, with an interception.
It was Gillislee's third 100-yard game of the season.
