Florida Gators: Peeking Ahead to Saturday’s Game Versus LSU Tigers
The Florida Gators are coming into their final regular-season game this upcoming Saturday. They will be hosting the LSU Tigers which is a makeup game because of Covid-19 that affected the Gators earlier in the season. This game will not mean anything because Florida defeated the Tennessee Volunteers last week to claim the SEC East championship. That means they will face the Alabama Crimson Tide who won the SEC West championship. The Gators started slowly against Tennessee but were able to take care of them. The Vols are a young team and had a good start to their season but have lost six straight. The Kyle to Kyle combination was back on in this game. The LSU Tigers the defending national champions are not going back there this year. I am looking forward to seeing if the Florida defense gets better before the SEC Championship.
LSU comes into this game after a blowout loss to Alabama. The final score in that game was 55-17. The Crimson Tide got revenge after LSU beat them last year. The Tigers have also lost this year to the Mississippi State Bulldogs, Missouri Tigers, Auburn Tigers, and Texas AM Aggies. The Aggies are the only team that has beat the Florida Gators in 2020. LSU has three wins that came against the Vanderbilt Commodores, South Carolina Gamecocks, and Arkansas Razorbacks. The only team this year out of those three that are having a decent season in the Razorbacks. This has been a struggle after winning it all last year. There is also a dark cloud hanging around the university with sexual assault allegations by former players. That has not affected this year’s team but with all the players that went to the NFL, they knew it would be tough.
The Florida Gators are going back to Atlanta to play in the SEC Championship game. They are currently number six in the country behind the Texas AM Aggies the only team they have lost to. The Aggies have the issue that the only team they have lost to is the Alabama Crimson Tide who have not lost yet. Florida is getting better in every game as the season continues. The loss to the Aggies was only by three points. The Volunteers stood no chance even the final score was 31-19. Kyle Trask continues to make strides on why he should win the Heisman Trophy. To me, the defense has gotten better and will need to be against LSU and Alabama. This game against the Tigers should be used to sure up holes before they get ready for the Crimson Tide.
The game will kick off at 7 PM EST. This will be the first night game for the Florida Gators in 2020. Most of their games have started at noon. This will also be senior night for the Gators who are in their final season. The offense has been solid all year long and the defense is getting better. I am looking forward to seeing how Florida handles this final game. I see them playing the game like they have all year and get a win. This will be what the Gators will look like as the head to play Alabama for the SEC and a berth in the college football playoff.
