Florida-LSU Prediction

This is a series considered by TV to be the marquee SEC series of the weekend, but it really isn’t. Florida has struggled for most of the season. LSU is your normal dangerous LSU. The Gators were pummeled in Nashville 3 games to none by Vandy. LSU could do the same thing this weekend. LSU 2 wins, Florida 1 win.
