Which means you’ll be able to watch LSU vs. Florida live stream on your computer, mobile devices, or TV. Read on to find out more about your options.
LSU Tigers vs. Florida Gators Preview
Last season, both LSU and Florida had mediocre seasons. But, Florida’s performance led it to the Birmingham Bowl game, which it won over East Carolina. This bowl victory came after the Gators missed a bowl appearance in 2013 for the first time in 22 years. LSU had one of its worst season in the last ten years, since Les Miles has become head coach. It lost to Notre Dame in the Music City Bowl and finished with a .500 record in the SEC.
LSU has seemed to bounce back thus far this season. It once again had one of the best recruiting classes in the country and has started off the year with a couple great wins. Wins over Auburn and Mississippi State ranked 18th and 25th, respectively, have led it to being ranked 6th in the nation.
Florida is currently ranked the 8th best team in the AP poll, but with quarterback Will Grier suspended for the season, holding on to the ranking is sure to be difficult. It only cracked into the top 25 two weeks ago, but with back to back convincing wins of Ole Miss, ranked 3rd at the time, and a strong Missouri team they have shot all the way up to the top 10. The game between the two of the top teams in the SEC will be a great match up. Especially, since one of them will likely suffer a sizeable drop in ranking after their first loss of the season.
