Florida vs. LSU. 3:30 Eastern on CBS. All the other info you want (like the free and legal online stream) is probably right here. I'll be at the game, and tweeting if service allows; FlaGators has recap duty until I get back. Play nice with others, use subject lines, and GO GATORS.

And, because our 25 predictions for Florida's biggest game of the season seemed to fit here...

  • Jeff Driskel will lead Florida to at least six first quarter points.
  • Driskel will be responsible for a play of at least 40 yards in the game.

    Driskel will be responsible for at least two touchdowns.

  • Mike Gillislee will run for at least 70 yards.
  • Gillislee will average under five yards per carry.

  • Florida's leading receiver will not be Jordan Reed.
  • Florida will have at least one passing touchdown in the game.

    Frankie Hammond, Jr. will make at least one big play.

    Florida will commit at least one offensive turnover.

    Gary Danielson will say something so annoying that someone will yell at him in the comments of this thread.

    Florida's defensive line will make its presence felt in the first quarter.

  • Dominique Easley will record at least two tackles for loss and sacks combined.
  • Lerentee McCray will record at least one sack.
  • Florida's linebacking corps will not be substantially boosted by Jelani Jenkins' return.

    I'm going to have a lot of fun singing "We Are The Boys," no matter what.
