Both teams look to make a statement in this one. The similarities run deep for these two programs. Both teams QB's have been extremly efficient. Bama QB Star Jackson has a 220.7 passer rating and 11 Td's and 0 interceptions on the year. Georgia QB James Scales already has over a 1,000 yards passing and 14 TD's against 7 interceptions. At the running back spot HB Mike Anderson leads the Bulldogs 553 yards on 98 carries and 8 TD's vs. Alabama's HB Trent Richardson 675 yards on 83 carries and 9 TD's. Defensively the teams are littered with stars but as units have failed to prevent opponents from moving the ball. Alabama hosts the game and this may be the one place either team has a clear cut advantage. One of these defensive units will step up and put their team in the SEC's driver seat. Live TV 10:00 EST 11/10/2009 www.justin.tv/jfosh LSU 3-2 (1-1) @ #8 Florida 3-1 (1-1) One of these teams will find themselves below .500 in conference and searching for answers. The other will remain in the SEC hunt and relevent. LSU seems to have settled any QB questions and Sheppard is starting to look comfortable. Ferwerda a question mark to start the season has been good enough at tailback to have 3 100 yard games. The question is which LSU offense will show up? 10 points against North Carolina and 14 against South Carolina. This is a big question as they take on their toughest test in the Gator defense. Florida is experienced and has looked good for all but 1 quater this season when they yielded 28 points to Tennessee. QB Jordan Reed is has 1200 yards passing and 12 TD's and is completing 68 % of his passes. Reed will be comfortable at home but will be handing the ball off to Freshman John Spence who takes the place of injured Mike Gillislee. Spence will need to come into his own in this one otherwise look for the Gators to lean on Reed a little more than usual. This game will be decided by which defense can make the other QB less comfortable. Other Games National TV Games #21 Ohio St. (1-2) @ #7 Clemson (4-0) Ohio St. should fire there AD scheduling Alabama and Virginia Tech already now add Clemson. The Tigers wont shut out the Buckeyes but will knock them out of the Top 25. Wake Forest 2-2 (1-2) @ #14 Florida St. 3-1 (1-1) All will be right for Florida State when this is over the Miami loss will be a distant memory. Regional Broadcasts #9 Miami 4-0 @ Duke Be very afraid for Duke. The Blue Devils gave up 70 to V.T. this shouldn't be any different.
