LSU Tigers vs. Florida Gators – Saturday, October 6th
When: 3:30 pm ET
Where: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville
Stream: CBS Sports
College Football Betting Odds:
The Tigers leap into this weekend’s action flashing a 5-0 record that ranks them 2nd in the SEC – West. So far this season, LSU is undefeated in conference play through 2 SEC matches. However, Alabama is also undefeated through their two conference matchups, tying with LSU for the No. 1 spot in the division. Considering how dominant Bama has been this season, LSU cannot afford any slip ups if they are to challenge them for an SEC title. Luckily for the Tigers, the college football betting odds are pegging them as the favorite this weekend. And since LSU has a 6-4 record against the Gators in their last 10 matchups, it’s looking like they’ll have a leg up over Florida this weekend. All in all this weekend’s action marks the 3rd time this season that the Tigers have faced a nationally ranked opponent this season. The first was No. 8 Miami in their season opener, followed by No. 7 Auburn two weeks later. The Tigers handled both of those challenges masterfully and will look to do the same this Saturday.
Players to Watch: Joe Burrow (131 passing yards, 6 TD, 0 INT), Nick Brossette (481 rushing yards, 6 TD, 4.7 AVG), and Justin Jefferson (294 receiving yards, 2 TD, 18 REC).
The Gators swim into this weekend’s SEC matchup flashing a 4-1 record. So far this season, the Gators are 2-1 in SEC play. Their lone loss of the season came against the University of Kentucky 27-16 in Week 2. That was a massive step back for the program, considering that UK is an unranked opponent. However, Florida proved they are capable of handling nationally ranked competition this past weekend when they defeated NO. 23 Mississippi State 13-6. But since the Tigers bring a much tougher offense to the table, Florida will need to score more than 13 to come out on top this weekend.
Players to Watch: Feleipe Franks (961 passing yards, 12 TD, 3 INT), Dameon Pierce (255 rushing yards, 2 TD, 10.2 AVG), and Freddie Swain (214 receiving yards, 3 TD, 10 REC).
