No. 4 LSU at No. 10 Florida: Preview, Players to Watch, Keys to the Game, TV Coverage, Where to Watch Online and More

Major questions about both No. 4 LSU and No. 10 Florida will be answered when the two face off on Saturday.

The Tigers will have their toughest test of the season coming off two consecutive lackluster performances when their travels to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for this Top 10 battle.

It will also be the first serious test for the Gators who will be able to prove that they are a legitimate threat to compete for the SEC title in 2012.

Over its first three games, LSU looked it would be right there with Alabama competing for the No. 1 ranking in the nation. However, the Tigers began to regress offensively against Auburn.

In that game, a first-quarter safety ended up being the difference in a game where LSU netted just 351 yards of total offense and 12 points. The next week, the Tigers stumbled yet again, this time against FCS foe Towson. At one point in the second quarter the Towson Tigers even held a 9-7 lead, though LSU rebounded for an ugly 38-22 win. 

Meanwhile, Florida has been riding its strong defense to a 4-0 record. The Gators rank No. 10 in the nation in scoring offense.
