College football fans are in for a treat this weekend as there are several big games on tap this Saturday. Out of all the matchups on the schedule this weekend, the Florida-LSU game might be the best one.
Florida handed Auburn its first loss of the season in large part because of its relentless defense. The Gators forced freshman quarterback Bo Nix into three interceptions.
During the game between Auburn and Florida, Kyle Trask suffered a knee injury in the first half. He did return shortly after it occurred, but it’s worth monitoring his mobility this weekend.
Next up for Florida is a showdown with LSU. It’ll be an epic showdown that features two unbeaten programs from the SEC.
ESPN analyst Bill Connelly revealed his predictions for multiple games in Week 7.
Connelly has LSU winning 32-24 over Florida.

The days of LSU relying solely on its defense are over. Joe Burrow and the offense are averaging 54.6 points per game.
LSU’s offense has been taken to new heights under passing game coordinator Joe Brady. His scheme has worked wonders for the Tigers through their first five games.
It’ll be entertaining to see if the Tigers can continue having success on offense even against the Gators’ stingy defense.
Will Florida knock off another undefeated program or will LSU remain perfect?
