No. 5 LSU is set to host the No. 7 Florida Gators Saturday in Tiger Stadium in front of what is expected to be a packed crowd. 

That's why WWL Radio’s Bobby Hebert thinks the Tigers need to get off to a fast start when the game kicks off at 7 p.m.  

“You gotta get on a roll at the beginning so the crowd is involved and you truly have that home field advantage,” Hebert said.

Tigers are favored by roughly two touchdowns in the matchup and though Hebert thinks this LSU is better than Florida he see the score being much closer. 

Hebert said one of the keys to victory will be protecting LSU quarterback Joe Burrow from one of college football’s top pass rushes.

On defense Hebert said the Tigers will need to contain Florida’s rushing attack led by Lamichael Perine, who ripped off an 88-yard touchdown run last week against Auburn. 

“I think you want to force the quarterback to beat you.  Do not let Florida run the ball on you.  Try and make them one dimensional,” He said.
