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.

It marked Burrow’s first interception in his collegiate career and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Tigers.

As for Florida, it came at the perfect moment and it all came from a sophomore. Now because of Stewart’s monumental play, the Gators are headed for a massive rise up the rankings.
