No. 4 LSU (5-0, 3-0) will face the No. 1 Florida Gators (4-0, 2-0) in Tiger Stadium on Saturday, October 10th. The game, which will be televised nationally by CBS, will kickoff at 7:10 pm CT. The game has been designated as the Gold Game, and all LSU fans are encouraged to wear gold shirts.

ESPN's College GameDay crew will be in Baton Rouge this weekend and will broadcast live beginning at 9 am CT from the Parade Grounds.

This will be the 56th meeting between the two programs. Florida leads the overall series, 29-23-3. LSU has won four of the last seven meetings.

LSU and Florida bring the highest combined ranking for a game in Tiger Stadium since October 31, 1959 when No. 1 LSU hosted No. 3 Ole Miss. It also marks the second straight year that LSU will host the nation's No. 1 ranked team (LSU played No. 1 Alabama last year). LSU is 2-8-1 all-time against teams ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll, including a 28-21 victory over No. 1 Florida in 1997.

FWIW...I just talked to Zee....Coop said if Tebow plays, it will be only for 3rd and shorts and game changing plays. Brantley will be your starter. Not saying this is definite, but this is what Tebow's roommate said.

Tebow makes all the difference. If he's out our chances of winning go to 50/50. If he's in and 100% I'd say 10-20% LSU.

What's the line? 3 points for Florida? On the road. BR Saturday night. That's all Tebow.

I would kindly disagree with that statement. Tebow has played in big games but Brantley has never started a game. Having his first start on the road in front of 93,000 crazy cajuns might be a little intimidating for him IMO.

I always thought the series was more lopsided in favor of Florida. Glad the record is a lot closer.

They won 13 of 14 from 1988 to 2001, which swung the series to their favor...
