Florida scoffs at notion of giving up 50 at LSU

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 17 Florida expects something closer to a shutout than a shootout against 10th-ranked LSU.

The Gators have praised Tigers quarterback Zach Mettenberger and arguably the nation's top receiving tandem, Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, all week. But defensive players raised eyebrows and pretty much scoffed at the notion of LSU dropping half a hundred on them Saturday.

Florida defensive tackle Darious Cummings says "we're not going to allow ourselves to let that happen."

The Tigers (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) are averaging 45 points and 489 yards a game this season. Florida (4-1, 3-0) hasn't given up 21 points in any of its last 13 league games.

How one of the SEC's highest-scoring offenses fairs against the league's stingiest defense likely will determine the outcome in Baton Rouge, La.
