LSU gets worst news possible heading into huge rivalry game

This will help someone out, just not the Tigers.

LSU didn't play with Leonard Fournette last week against Missouri, but still put up 42 points and possibly the best offensive performance in school history with over 600 yards of total offense. However, Florida's defense is considerably better than Missouri's and will undoubtedly be keyed in on the rushing attack this weekend.

While LSU is unlikely to match that performance against Mizzou, the Tigers will likely be running the ball most of the game as Hurricane Matthew bears down on the state and throwing the ball would be less than ideal. Now they'll have to do it without Fournette again it seems.

With conditions likely to be pretty terrible and downright disgusting, expect this game to be an ugly one as well.
