    I think the single greatest factor in the florida game is our oline providing good protection and keeping the florida defense on the field winning time of possession. That means being able to run effectively too. Burrow cant get caught in the holding the ball too long and taking sacks mode.

    Quick screens to backs in the flat and some misdirection thrown in.

    Florida showed if you take away auburns side to side running game they fell apart.

    Florida has speed. on Offense and defense but one thing Mullen always has is a qb that can manage a run pass option. Without franks his qb is one dimensional with the starter.

    I predict we will see the faster qb which is the backup freshman more against us.

    Good post and I’ll add ...
    Early 3rd down conversions make this game a quick blowout for LSU if:
    We execute our offense and take what is given (lotsa open receivers in the Gator Secondary)

    Other notables:

    KEEP IN MIND LSU PLAYED
    5 GAMES VS 6 FOR FLA

    Florida has 61st ranked offense
    389 plays ... 2546 yds ... 424 ypg
    6.54 yds/play ... 25 TDs

    Scoring Defense ... points per game (rounded) ... Florida 10 ... LSU 20
    Scoring Offense ... points per game

    I have confidence in our scheme to hide some OL deficiencies; QB and WRs are playing cerebrally. Also CEH is solid at RB.

    I actually like the 45-13 prediction.
