. today

No. 11 Florida at LSU

When/where: 4; Pete Maravich Assembly Center, Baton Rouge, La.

TV/radio: ESPNU; 620-AM

Records: Florida 11-2, 1-0 SEC; LSU 9-3, 0-1.

Notable: After opening the conference season with a 33-point win over Georgia, the Gators go on the road for the first time in SEC play on a three-game winning streak. … How Florida handles this game could be critical because it begins a stretch in which four of its next five games are on the road. … LSU began 6-0 under first-year coach Johnny Jones but is 3-3 in its past six, including a 68-63 loss at Auburn on Wednesday.
