HOME VS. FLORIDA, NOVEMBER 19th
The much anticipated “Hurricane Matthew makeup game” against the Florida Gators awaits LSU in Week 12. The game that almost didn’t happen has big ramifications for both teams.
IF by this time the Tigers have beaten Alabama and Arkansas, the drama in Baton Rouge will be at an all time high.
This is a game where the LSU defense will have a chance to shine against relatively “green” Gator QB Luke Del Rio. Del Rio has shown flashes in limited action (he missed 3 games with injury), but he is prone to throw interceptions.
The fact that the game is in Baton Rouge makes the win percentage for the Tigers go up. This game could end up being another shoot out.
I give LSU a 75% chance to win this game.
