Florida and LSU meet as undefeated teams for the first time since 2009.
Florida has gotten off to a fast start this season and were the beneficiaries of a well-timed bye week. The Gators had been struggling with several injuries and surely welcomed the bye week with open arms. Florida already has secured three conference wins and will be looking to upset LSU and earn their fourth conference win on Saturday.
LSU makes the trip to Gainesville after two lackluster performances. The Bayou Bengals were just able to escape with a 12-10 victory and got more than they bargained for from an FCS opponent last week. LSU wasn't able to put Towson away until the fourth quarter last week, and the game should come as a wake up call for LSU.
Both teams will be facing their stiffest competition of the season this Saturday. Jeff Driskel has yet to play against a defensive front seven like the one Les Miles will bring into the Swamp on Saturday, and Zach Mettenberger has yet to face a defense as good as Florida's.
This game will be very telling for both teams. Florida is trying to prove to the world that they have what it takes to compete with the heavyweights in the SEC. Beating LSU would go a long way towards proving the Gators are back. After gutting out wins the past two weeks, LSU needs to prove that they are worthy of the preseason hype and show that they are still in the class of the SEC.
No matter who wins this game it will tell us a lot about the future landscape of the SEC.
