Florida Gators defensive back Brad Stewart Jr. came through when it mattered most, picking off LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and returning it for a 25-yard touchdown to put the game away for good.
On third down with Burrow attempting to lead the No. 5-ranked Tigers on a game-winning drive, Florida’s sophomore defensive back timed his jump perfectly and picked off the pass then returned it for the score.
