ITG In-Depth: Four Key Plays

No. 11 Florida (5-0, 4-0 SEC) punished No. 4 LSU (5-1, 1-1 SEC) with a second-half dogfight Saturday afternoon in the Swamp. Instead of our regular five key plays, ITG has decided to break down the four key moments, one per quarter, that decided the Gators' 14-6 victory.

1) Boom goes the dynamite

Sophomore punter Kyle Christy saved the Gators' britches all game with monster punts landing inside the 20-yard line. But his best boot on the afternoon was a 61-yard bomb, a career-long, following a stalled drive in the first quarter. The Gators opened their second drive of the game at their own 45-yard line. They subsequently went backwards, squandering great field position. But Christy reflipped the field on one kick, drilling a punt all the way down to LSU's six yard-line. Christy averaged 49.1 yards on seven kicks, pinning three inside the 20.

Punter Kyle Christy on 61-yard punt: "It felt really good to help our defense out and put them in a bad spot. It wasn't a high-scoring game so it was crucial. As soon as I hit the ball I knew it was good. I was stoked."
