LSU's latest top-10 showdown comes Saturday night when the Tigers host no. 7 Florida.

It's homecoming for LSU who comes off a 42-6 win over Utah State.

Saturday's meeting is the 66th all-time meeting. LSU leads the series 33-29-3. The lower-ranked team has won the last three meetings incliding Florida's 27-19 win in Gainesville.

"I'm happy for the players and the fans, man, this is what you come to LSU for," said head coach Ed Orgeron. "This is why you want to play in this game. I watched LSU/Florida. I remember when Tebow would come in, I remember when we upset them, we went for it on fourth down, I watched every one of those games. And even though we played them over there the last two years it was, it's a great rivalry."

"Everyone says LSU has a lot of different rivals," said quarterback Joe Burrow. "I think this one is the biggest one. I don't like them, they don't like us. That's been the talk around here, you just have to keep you emotions in check in a game like this."

Kickoff in Baton Rouge is 7:00 p.m., the game airs on ESPN.
