The Florida Gators and LSU Tigers are finally getting their hurricane postponed match up, and for Florida it will be a critical game with the SEC East title on the line. Keep reading for how you can watch via live stream!
The Florida Gators were probably better off had they played the LSU Tigers back on Oct. 8 before Hurricane Matthew caused the game to be postponed. Now they have to hit the road to play in Baton Rouge and the team has suffered so many injuries since then. Can the banged up Gators get it together and keep their place atop the SEC East? Tune in to find out when the teams go head to head Nov. 19 at 1pm EST. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE FLORIDA GATORS VS. LSU TIGERS LIVE STREAM.
The Gators will be without seven starters as go up against the 16th ranked Tigers, a point not lost on LSU linebacker Arden Key, 20. “A lot of injuries,” he told reporters earlier in the week. “They were injured when we were about to play (the first time). Then I guess they got a couple guys back, and now they lost multiple guys. I watched the South Carolina game this past weekend. It was just injury after injury.”
He then added the fighting words that the Gators are afraid to play them because they’re down so many key players. “I know they’re scared to come up here because they don’t have all their stars or whatnot. So, we feel comfortable.” Oh man, not only is he exuding confidence, Arden’s calling out his opponents as cowards!
That Gators have seen nine starters go down to injury in just their past two games, yet they still managed to pull off a 20-7 win against the Gamecocks in week 10. Had they played LSU back on Oct. 8, they could have avoided going up against the Tigers’ All-American running back Leonard Fournette, 21, who was sidelined at the time with an ankle injury. While he re-aggravated it in a 38-10 win against Arkansas Nov. 12, he’s far more likely to see action now than he would have in their original meet-up.
The Gators really need this win to help secure their second consecutive SEC East Division title. With a victory, they’ll get the chance head to Atlanta Dec. 3 to play West Division champs, the undefeated and number one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. If they drop this game, they better pray that Tennessee loses one of their last two battles of the 2016 season.
