Florida, fresh off of entering the top 10 in the AP Poll and coming in at No. 11 in the Coaches Poll, will open as the underdog for its match-up with LSU in Baton Rouge.

The Tigers, for their part, are ranked No. 5 in the Coaches Poll and No. 6 in the AP Poll.

Florida has only beaten the Tigers once in their past five meetings, with that most recent win coming in 2012. The Gators' last win in Baton Rouge happened in 2009, as Tim Tebow returned from a concussion suffered two weeks prior and helped the Gators win a 13-3 slugfest.

This time Florida will look to Will Grier and company to deliver the Gators to victory in this match-up of top ten teams.
