Nobody could have anticipated this would be a game of unbeatens, but it makes for high drama down on the Bayou.
It is kind of hard to think the Gators have a shot but they have been flipping scripts all season long.
The Gators took a huge blow when QB Will Grier was suspended for the season. Its not that he was putting up huge numbers but he was the starting QB for an undefeated team.
Without him I assume they will be with Treon Harris, a very athletic player, who last year proved he is not quite ready as a thrower. He has been good in limited action this season.
Even with Grier the Gators were winning with defense and it will be a huge challenge to stop the LSU ground attack. They know exactly what is coming but the challenge will be how to stop it.
With Grier out and playing top competition this definitely looks like the week the Gators will experience their first defeat of 2015.
I feel like they might be due for a whipping too.
The Tigers are looking to prove an old theory that having a dominant running back can lead to a championship. They may be solid on defense but I can not recall a contending team that was a dependent on one player as these guys are.
That is because even though Leonard Fournette is a significant weapon he is gashing opponents with nearly no threat of the pass. LSU is ranked 122 passing this season. You would think the play action game would be something the Tigers could exploit.
On defense they are very good too but not posting the numbers they have posted in the past.
This week they will look to load up on the run against Florida, similar to the ways that opponents load up on them.
LSU has a couple of big road game at Alabama and Ole Miss but this will be likely be their toughest test to date. They can’t take Florida lightly.
