Who throws a shoe, honestly? The answer, apparently, is Florida defensive back Marco Wilson. The redshirt junior was penalized late in the 4th quarter of a tied game after he threw the shoe of LSU tight end Kole Taylor, which had ended up in his hands following a 3rd down stop.
That 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty kept a late LSU drive alive, and the Tigers were able to take a 37-34 lead with 23 seconds to go when kicker Cade York drilled a 57-yard field goal through the uprights at a foggy Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Florida was able to quickly drive down for one last chance at tying the game, but kicker Evan McPherson’s 51-yard field goal attempt as time expired drifted just wide, giving LSU the upset victory over the No. 6 Gators.
Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen addressed that play, and much more in his postgame press conference. See what he had to say here, including his veiled shot at the Big Ten. Video is courtesy of the SEC.
