BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Jeremy Hill rushed for 121 yards, Zach Mettenberger passed for 152, and LSU's defense did the rest to give the 10th-ranked Tigers a 17-6 victory over No. 17 Florida on Saturday.

LSU, which came in averaging 45.5 points, had a much harder time finding the end zone against a Florida defense rated among the nation's best, but 1-yard touchdown runs by fullback J.C. Copeland and freshman reserve quarterback Anthony Jennings were enough for the Tigers (6-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference).

After yielding 44 points in its only loss of the season at Georgia two weeks ago, the LSU defense kept an opponent out of the end zone for the first time this season.

Tyler Murphy passed for 115 yards for the Gators (4-2, 3-1), who led 3-0 early, but managed only another field goal after that.
