WHAT'S AT STAKE
Florida's spot atop the league's Eastern Division. LSU is looking to bounce back from a stunning home loss to Troy and avoid the program's second 0-2 start in league play in the last four years.
Derrius Guice and Darrel Williams vs Florida's run defense. Guice is expected to return after missing last week's loss to Troy and would give the Tigers a powerful 1-2 punch against the Gators, who are allowing 141 yards a game and 4.2 yards a carry on the ground.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
LSU: LB Arden Key, considered a first-round NFL talent, has been mostly a disappointment in 2017. The junior has nine tackles and half a sack in three games. Key took a leave of absence in the spring and underwent shoulder surgery in May. He missed all of summer workouts, most of preseason camp, the first two games and has yet to get back into game shape.
Florida: QB Feleipe Franks, who was once committed to LSU, regains his starting job following a season-ending injury to Luke Del Rio. Franks started the first three games, but was benched in two of those.
