LSU offensive tackles KJ Malone, Toby Weathersby questionable for Auburn game

"I could have played better, but my team backed me up". "It was a tough week".

Florida escaped Tiger Stadium with a 16-10 victory last November thanks to a goal-line stand in the final seconds. UF got the ball with 4:01 remaining, but ran just six plays in the span of 2:22 - or 24 seconds a snap.

"This shows what this football team can be, but we have to pay attention to the details", Orgeron said.

Auburn is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 conference games, 4-0-1 in their last 6 October games, 3-1-1 in their last 5 games following a win, and 5-2 in their last 7 games on the road against a team with a winning home record.

FRANKS RETURNS: Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks, who was once committed to LSU, regains his starting job this week following a season-ending injury to Luke Del Rio. The Gators marched 75 yards on seven plays after Lamical Perine punched in from two yards out for a 17-10 score.

Eddy Pineiro's wide left extra point, his first miss in 48 tries as a Gator, wound up providing the margin of defeat. LSU upset the Gators at The Swamp 17-16 giving Georgia some breathing room in the SEC West.

The Gators, down by that single point, had three fourth-quarter possessions to take the lead. The junior has nine tackles and half a sack in three games.

GAINESVILLE | The University of Florida offense has faced intense criticism this season not only for its lack of production but from an operational standpoint. An already intense rivalry became even more so, when the two schools squabbled publicly over when and where to play the 2016 game.

Saturday will only be the second day game in the last 16 played in Baton Rouge.

If you're thinking they need more adult supervision, Von Rosenberg is 27 and he stole the line from Florida full-grown head coach Jim McElwain's postgame opening from a year ago when the roles were reversed.

LSU fans may not be happy about missing an opportunity for a night game in Tiger Stadium this weekend, but there are a few benefits to a 2:30 p.m. kickoff. Orgeron said then that one of the reasons he had failed as the Ole Miss coach from 2005-07 was a micromanaging style that suffocated his assistants. "Wow. Just a great game all around by the players and the coaches". The Bulldogs gashed Vanderbilt for 423 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-14 rout.

"Just the tempo", Franks said "Maybe we slowed down there a little bit the last drive".

Speaking of "got to have it", the Gators are again facing an uphill struggle to get to the SEC championship game.
