A win by Florida (7-2, 5-2) would clinch a spot in the SEC Championship Game, but the early line per SportsLine has LSU (6-3, 4-2) as a 14-point favorite. The line started at 10.5 points, but it has quickly risen with the injury news out of Gainesville.
The Tigers are out of the race to Atlanta with Alabama clinching the western division title. However, LSU still has plenty left to play for because a win over the Gators combined with a win over Texas A&M on Thanksgiving night puts the Tigers in a good spot to land a berth in the Sugar Bowl.
