College football: Florida Gators vs. Louisiana-Lafayette, 12:20 Saturday, Ch. 38, 620-AM

Watch out for …

Florida's offense has struggled the past few games, but the Gators might have a chance to get back on track. Maybe. Louisiana-Lafayette is ranked No. 114 in pass defense, but the Gators are No. 114 in passing offense, so who has the edge? Louisiana-Lafayette sophomore QB Terrance Broadway is fresh off his second consecutive 350-plus yard game after throwing for 373 and four touchdowns against Louisiana-Monroe.

Having closed out its SEC schedule last week, Florida (8-1) plays the first of its final two home games today, and it's also homecoming. Florida is 4-0 all-time against the Ragin' Cajuns (5-3). They last met in 1996, a 55-21 victory for the Gators. Louisiana-Lafayette is averaging 35 points per game and more than 400 yards, while the Gators are fourth in Division I-A in defense, holding opponents to 12.1 points per game. The Gators have not lost at home this season.
