Orgeron And LSU Looking Forward To Florida Game
College football is a game of what have you done for me lately. Just ask former LSU Coach Les Miles. Last week LSU played like LSU was supposed to be playing. At least in the minds of fans and pundits. The Tigers rolled up over 600 yards of total offense in their win over Missouri.
This week's opponent is a little more talented than Missouri. They are the Florida Gators. They will be hosting LSU on Saturday morning when the game kicks off in Gainesville at 11 AM Louisiana time.
Coach Ed Orgeron was asked by members of the media on Monday what the Tiger offense plans to do in order to score against a very talented and highly motivated Florida defense.
We're going to expound on our package, obviously. We're not going to show them the same thing and run the same play this week and give them what they expect. Steve and all is going to make some changes this week. We'll see what we can do. But also, we're very effective in doing the things that we do, so we don't want to completely get rid of it.
Last week the LSU offense was helped out by a career performance from Derrius Guice. Guice was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week. This Saturday the Tigers may have yet another silver bullet in the offensive arsenal. It is expected that Leonard Fournette will see action against Florida. Fournette has already missed two games this season because of an ankle injury.
In speaking with the media Coach Orgeron didn't give up the all the details of the Tiger offensive attack but he did suggest that the LSU offense will be running the ball a lot. He did hint that the ground game won't be the only way the Tigers plan to attack Florida.
Regardless it's always a good game when Florida and LSU get together. Currently, Vegas odds makers have LSU a slight favorite on the road. That very small point spread could certainly move just a little before kickoff as more information about Leonard Fournette's return becomes available.
