Florida Football: Previewing the LSU Game

Florida suffered a few setbacks in their 38-10 loss to Alabama. 

The first being the blowout loss at home, the worst loss at home since 2002. 

The second being losing quarterback John Brantley for the foreseeable future. 

Brantley went down with a high ankle sprain right before halftime and didn't return to the field. The coaching staff has remained tight lipped about the injury, saying Monday only that Brantley would not need surgery, they would update the media every Monday on the quarterback's status and that Jeff Driskel would start against LSU. 

After failing their first true test of the season, the Gators must regroup and face No.1 LSU on the road. This will be the most hostile environment the Gators play in all season long, as LSU has won 46 of their last 51 games at home. LSU has a current 12-game winning streak at home, with their last loss coming to Florida in 2009. 

The start time of the game is scheduled for a 3:30 PM, and will give the Gators their first real road test. Can the Gators win a game that nobody thinks they can? Or will LSU be too much to handle for the young Florida team? 

Let's take a look at how the Gators and Tigers will match up on Saturday.
