The Gators, in what was supposed to have been a home game before the venue was changed due to storms in October, stopped LSU on fourth-and-goal from the one with three seconds to play.
Florida (8-2) won the SEC East title with the 16-10 victory.
“It’s no small feat to go to that championship game back-to-back,” Florida coach Jim McElwain said. “I just can’t tell you how proud I am of our players, our staff and happy for the Gator fans that, you know, don’t think we’re very good, but all we do is end up back in Atlanta.
“So that’s pretty cool.”
LSU outgained Florida 423-270, but the Tigers lost two field goals and botched a punt. Then came the final series. LSU had a first-and-goal at the Florida seven, and moved to the one with 38 seconds to play. Two plays failed to gain, however.
The Gators conclude their regular season against FSU.
