Florida vs LSU NCAAF College Football Pick & Score Prediction

Floridas run to the top of the SEC East Division standings through the first half of the college football season under first-year head coach Jim McElwain has been one of the most surprising stories of the season. Now the Gators will face their toughest test to date in Saturdays Florida-LSU game.

ESPN will televise Florida-LSU in a 7 p.m. Eastern game from Baton Rouge, which should make for an amazing night-time atmosphere at Tiger Stadium. Both Florida and LSU have moved into the Top 10 of the national rankings this week, and both teams are undefeated.

Both Florida and LSU sit atop their respective divisions in the SEC. The Gators are 4-0 in SEC play and 6-0 overall, while LSU is 3-0 in the SEC and 5-0 overall. Texas A&M in the West Division is the only other undefeated SEC team midway through the college football season.

For a Gators program that won only seven of its final 19 games under Will Muschamp over the past two seasons, the 6-0 start under McElwain is a complete surprise. Few wouldve envisioned in the preseason that the Florida-LSU game wouldve had much importance in either the race toward the SEC Championship Game or in the race toward a College Football Playoff berth.

The Gators last trip to Baton Rouge in 2013 was one that started the massive downward slide for Muschamps squad. Both Florida and LSU were ranked in the Top 20 in the 2013 game, but the Tigers won easily at home, 17-6. That started a seven-game losing streak to end the 2013 season for Florida, in which they never scored more than 20 points in any game.

Entering Saturdays Florida-LSU game, the Gators offense appears to be a different animal than it was during the last Florida-LSU game in Baton Rouge, ranking 47th nationally in scoring at 32.2 points per game. However, the Gators have been opportunistic, as they rank 84th in total offense at 385 yards per game. It will be interesting to see if the Tigers can avoid errors to give Florida great field position.

The Gators best win of the season came two weeks ago, when they thumped then-#3 Mississippi, 38-10, at Florida. LSU has beaten two ranked teams this season, Mississippi State (21-19) and Auburn (45-21, ', '), although neither team is currently ranked.

Stopping Tigers sophomore running back Leonard Fournette will be the key in the Florida-LSU game. Florida ranks 14th nationally in rushing defense at 100.5 yards allowed per game. Fournette has rushed for 1,022 yards and 12 scores through five games, and he has averaged at least 7.9 yards per carry in each of the past four games, topping the 200-yard mark three times.
