The LSU Tigers were set to travel to Gainsville this Saturday to take on #18 Florida but now that game will not happen Saturday due to Hurricane Matthews inevitable landfall along the Florida East coast.

Officials from LSU and Florida officials along with the SEC announced the postponement of the game this afternoon.  According to, The universities and the SEC Office will work to reschedule the game later in the 2016 season if possible.

Looking over the LSU Tigers and Florida Gators schedules for 2016, I don't see where both teams can reschedule the game because LSU's bye week is October 29th while the Florida Gators bye week is October 22nd.

For now that game will not happen and the LSU tigers football team and their fans will have to wait until next Saturday when LSU hosts Southern Mississippi at Tigers Stadium.
