Quarterback Joe Burrow did a damn good job answering his critics last week to lead the No. 5 ranked LSU Tigers (5-0) into October undefeated; the Tigers head east to play Dan Mullen and the No. 22 Florida Gators (4-1) in the swamp in an SEC showdown on Saturday afternoon.
The game is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on CBS.

The LSU defense has been instrumental in all five wins this season, including a secondary that has tallied seven interceptions, tied for second in the conference. In addition to a great defense, it now seems the Tigers have an offense capable of winning games as well.
Junior quarterback Joe Burrow silenced a lot of doubters last week. Burrow had, statistically, his best and most efficient game of the season, completing 18 of 25 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-16 win against Ole Miss. In addition to last week’s performance, Burrow also owns a game-winning drive on the road in a 22-21 last-second victory against No. 8 Auburn on September 15.
Mullen, after taking the Florida head coaching job, returned to Mississippi State for the first time last week. The Gators won a low-scoring 13-6 affair against the Bulldogs. Even more impressive, the Gators defense – No. 1 in the nation this season with 14 takeaways – held quarterback Nick Fitzgerald to just 98 passing yards and 32 rushing yards – on 20 attempts.
Florida, fresh off an emotional victory, attempts to avoid a massive letdown at home. Mullen understands how good overall the SEC is, and how good your next opponent is.
“The league always gets tougher, one week to the next.”
In order for the Gators to take the next step though, sophomore quarterback Feleipe Franks needs to play better, like Burrow has for the Tigers. Last week was just the second time this season Franks completed more than 53% of his passes, and he still mustered just 219 yards and an interception.
