Comments

This is the top game in college football for Saturday. LSU and Florida in Baton Rouge. This matchup pits Florida’s decent offense and very strong defense against LSU’s outstanding offense and decent defense. Florida head coach Dan Mullen seems to have a knack for pulling out close wins. LSU hasn’t been in many close games other than the Texas win. This one may come down to who has the best QB and the raucas LSU homefield advantage and the Tigers have both those advantages.
