Sportscapper Island Prediction

The Tigers are the best in the country against the rush. Tebow is a rushing quarterback. The Gators will have to find a way to get it done through the air, which is not their strong suit. Having said the above, plus the home field we expect the Bayou Bengals to roll and cover the touchdown. LSU 27 Florida 17.
