Last Saturday, LSU didn't have too much trouble with Florida at home as they won 52-35.

Jayden Daniels continued his habit of posting crazy stat lines, rushing for 234 yards and two touchdowns on only 12 carries, while also throwing for 372 yards and three touchdowns while picking up 14.3 yards per attempt. Daniels' longest rush was for an incredible 85 yards. Brian Thomas Jr. was another key contributor, picking up 150 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Georgia State's recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Saturday after their third straight loss. They might be feeling deja-vu: they lost 42-14 to App. State, which was the same score (and result) they got the week prior. The defeat unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for Georgia State in their matchups with App. State: they've now lost nine in a row.

The Panthers were plagued by a slow offense and finished the game with only 3.3 yards per play. They were crushed by their opponents in that department as App. State advanced 8.5.

As mentioned, LSU is the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 31.5 points. They might be worth a quick bet since they're sitting on a four game streak of covering the spread when expected to win.

Here's a few offensive stats to keep an eye on ahead of Saturday's match: The Tigers have been unstoppable on the ground this season, having averaged 223.8 rushing yards per game (they're ranked fourth in rushing yards per game overall). However, it's not like the Panthers struggle in that department as they've been averaging 181.4 per game. It's looking like Saturday's game might have some serious battles in the trenches.
