The No. 17 Florida Gators are in Baton Rouge Saturday afternoon to take on the banged up LSU Tigers.

Clad in their orange uniforms, the Gators (4-2 overall, 2-2 in the SEC) are fresh off a shutout win over Vanderbilt last weekend. The Tigers (3-3, 1-2), meanwhile, are on a two-game losing streak. Their latest was a 42-21 loss to Kentucky in Lexington last Saturday. The previous weekend, the Wildcats also topped Florida in an upset in Kentucky, 20-13.

The trip to Louisiana is the Gators' second SEC road game of the season. The Tigers have won the last two meetings between the teams. The Gators haven’t won consecutive games over LSU since 2008-09.
