Florida at LSU

Florida comes into its matchup with a ferocious LSU defense looking to answer some questions on offense.

Florida offense vs. LSU defense
• The Gators will be without starting QB John Brantley (ankle), so true freshman Jeff Driskel will get the start. Driskel looks nothing like a freshman in terms of size, arm strength and athleticism, but he appeared lost, lacked poise and made questionable decisions throughout the second half last week against a ferocious Alabama defense. Things won't be any easier in Baton Rouge against an LSU defense that is just as talented. Expect Tigers defensive coordinator John Chavis to aggressively dial up pressures to put heat on Driskel. When attempting to beat the blitz Driskel must keep an eye out for CB Tyrann Mathieu, who is arguably the most instinctive defensive playmaker in the country and can wreak havoc on opposing offenses.
