This is the matchup than many SEC fans have been clamoring for ever since it was postponed due to Hurricane Matthew.
The #21 Florida Gators are travelling to Death Valley to take on the #16 LSU Tigers in a game that could decide who goes to the SEC Championship Game this year.
The Gators have been better than many people expected this year and are still hanging onto 1st place in the East. They won at home against South Carolina last week 20-7.
The Tigers have come alive under interim head coach Ed Orgeron and are looking like one of the best teams in the nation, despite having three losses.
They won handily over Arkansas on the road last week 38-10.
The #21 Gators have been somewhat unpredictable this year. They have looked great in most of their games, but were destroyed in their two losses to Tennessee (38-28) and to Arkansas (31-10).
Two weeks ago it looked as though they were safely in the SEC Championship Game, but a loss here would propel the Volunteers back into first place.
Defensively, the Gators have a much talent as anyone in the country. However, they have struggled at times and looked completely lost in the two losses.
But overall, they’ve been very good, allowing just 266.8 yards per game (3rd in nation), 155.1 passing yards per game (3rd) and 111.7 rushing yards per game (10th).
The offense has been middle-of-the-road, but puts up enough points to win when the defense is on its game.
The #16 Tigers looked as though the season was already lost early on. They lost two of their first four games and fired long-time head coach
Les Miles. However, interim coach Ed Ogeron hit a nerve with the team and they have turned things around since.
He probably stands no chance of keeping the job past this year, but he has brought them back to winning four of their last five.
The only loss in that span was a 10-0 home loss to the destroyer of worlds that is #1 Alabama.
As good as the Florida defense is, LSU’s might be even better.
The season statistics are not as impressive due to the slow start, but they are still allowing only 6th in FBS in scoring D (13.9 points allowed per game) and 15th in rushing defense (114.0 yards allowed on the ground per game).
Their strength on offense is undoubtedly on the ground with star running back Leonard Fournette and his partner in crime Derrius Guice.
Guice actually leads the team in rushing with 881 yards and nine touchdowns.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Prediction
The Gators have more to play for in this one, but that won’t count for a lot when playing LSU in Death Valley.
Both teams have great defenses, so this one should be a low-scoring affair.
The Gators offense will probably be stifled, while they should also be able to keep the one-dimensional Tigers offense from putting up too much.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNDER 39.5
LSU is one of the most talented teams in the nation and will want to play spoiler for the Gator’s championship hopes. Their defense has been incredible as of late, and the Gators offense is unpredictable at best.
I do expect the Gators to keep it within 13.5, but the Tigers get the win.
