If Florida and their inexperienced quarterback Jeff Driskel are to upset Number 1 LSU on Saturday, then they need a much better performance from both the offense and defensive lines than they had against Alabama last weel
The Gators were dominated up front against Alabama last weekend, leading coordinators Charlie Weis and Dan Quinn to critique the efforts of their respective lines.
“They out-physicaled us in the game,” Quinn said.
Alabama ran for 226 yards last Saturday, and LSU comes in averaging 172.6 per game on the ground. Also, the Tigers’ offensive line leads the Southeastern Conference with just three sacks allowed. On defense, Florida is tied for fifth in the conference with nine sacks, but Quinn said LSU likes to leave seven players in protection on pass plays, making it difficult to pressure Jarrett Lee.
On offense, the Gators allowed three sacks against the Crimson Tide, including one that injured starting quarterback John Brantley.
“We can’t lose the line of scrimmage,” Weis said. “We lose the line of scrimmage Saturday afternoon, we’ll be in for a long day.”
