Comments

This is a battle between two teams that are both disappointed with where their teams are at this point in the season. Florida is better on both sides of the ball but LSU could steal this one in Baton Rouge. One difference that stands out is LSU’s very long list of injuries. Florida wins in what should be a tight game.
