Florida-LSU Prediction

The LSU Tigers could win the SEC. The path to that lofty achievement is entirely realistic for the Tigers. If they beat Tennessee at home or if Kentucky sweeps the Vols in a few weeks, they will be in prime position to get the No. 1 seed at the SEC Tournament. If both of those events happen – LSU over UT and UK over the Vols – LSU is almost certain to win the SEC’s regular-season championship. All the Tigers have to do is take care of the games they should win… and that’s something they have done with the sole exception of the Arkansas game. LSU is more than just Tre Waters or Naz Reid. Various players are stepping up for Will Wade, who is making his mark this season. LSU is for real, and Florida will have a hard time keeping pace with the Tigers. LSU 78, Florida 68. (Matt Zemek)
