LSU vs. Florida


LSU travels to The Swamp this weekend to take on Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators. While not technically one of Florida's rivals, LSU fans see the Gators as a huge SEC rival and love beating them anytime they can.

This year, the Florida offense isn't moving the ball and scoring as highly as in the past. LSU's dominant defense will look for that trend to continue. While the Auburn game was the first true test for LSU, this game will be a tougher challenge. Auburn has wilted since the LSU game, struggling with Tennesse and losing to Vandy. While the Gators were upset by Ole Miss, that game was at 11:30 in the morning and all LSU fans know how much different playing at night can be compared to the JP/Raycom game.

A big question will be how QB Jarod Lee reacts in his first road start. He played well (in the second half) against Auburn, but it's still not like starting in The Swamp. Look for LSU to pound the ball with Charles Scott and the rest of the LSU running backs to take the pressure off of Lee's shoulders.
