Florida Offense vs. LSU Defense
This is a matchup of strength versus strength. Florida's high-octane offense looks to rebound from its least effective outing of the season (20-17 loss at Auburn) against an LSU unit that ranks first-nationally in rushing defense, pass efficiency defense and total defense. QB Tim Tebow is always the X-factor when it comes to game-planning against Florida's offense. Tebow continues to lead Florida in rushing yards (433) and carries (89). As much as Urban Meyer would like to see his franchise player take fewer hits, don't expect the trend to be reversed in Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday night. Kestahn Moore is the leading rusher at the running back position but he has 33 fewer carries than Tebow at this point. Moore is a tough runner, but he lacks the power to break many tackles and the elusiveness to make many defenders miss.
