For most of the day, it was a defensive struggle. Then, with the clock winding down, LSU and Georgia started trading touchdowns as though the defenses weren't even on the field.

The Southeastern Conference rivals combined for three TDs in the final three minutes, but Charles Scott scored the one that mattered most on a 33-yard run with 46 seconds remaining to give No. 4 LSU a wild 20-13 victory over 18th-ranked Georgia on Saturday.

"Our football team, if you turn your back on them, they will beat you up," LSU coach Les Miles said. "We have competitive men, and they like to play. I am so proud of them."

Next up: a showdown with top-ranked Florida in Baton Rouge next Saturday night.
