Challenges for LSU

LSU has to get some folks healthy. Good grief, that’s a heck of a long injury list. Florida has got a good number of wounded as you can see above. This game is going to be a rumble in the swamp. Florida may have the edge. They played Tennessee much closer than LSU. Some of that was poor decision-making by the LSU coaching staff in the first half. Florida isn’t a heavy passing team but they do throw for some chunk yardage. They average about 15 yards per completion which is very good. LSU can’t let the Gators get too many long completions.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT ( 7:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
