CHALLENGES

Few thought the Gators would be in this position after the loss to Michigan a few weeks ago. But here they are, 3-0 in the league with a wounded LSU team headed to Gainesville. The Gators have a chance to improve to 4-0 in the conference while earning the SEC East some respect. LSU, which was routed by Mississippi State a few weeks ago and just suffered a close loss to Troy, is not a team you want to overlook. The Tigers are loaded with talent and will not go down easy. Feleipe Franks is now the man for the Gators with the injury to quarterback Luke Del Rio last week. Former Notre Dame player Malik Zaire is the backup but has rarely played this season. The Gators need to protect Franks and play solid on defense in order to keep the pressure off of their young starting QB.
