Video: LSU-Florida players have pre-game scuffle

-

LSU and Florida engaged in some “extra-curricular activity” prior to the kickoff of todays game. The scuffle had to be broken up by various players and coaches and even included police intervention.

The game was originally scheduled to be played in early October but was one of many games rescheduled due to Hurricane Matthew. Initially, the game was postponed indefinitely, with little likelihood of being made up; neither Florida nor LSU shared a bye week for the rest of the season.

However, after numerous complaints from players, coaches and fans, the a date was secured. After both teams lobbied so vigilantly to make this game happen, it’s no wonder why they are both so charged up.

Both teams had to buy out their respective opponents who they were originally slated to play this week. That included a $1.5 million buyout of South Alabama by the Tigers, and a $500,000 buyout of Presbyterian by the Gators.

Originally intended to have the Tigers visit “The Swamp” in Florida, the terms of the rescheduled game stipulated that Florida would become the visiting team.

Neither team is playing for an SEC championship this year, but both are looking to boost their postseason bowl credentials. LSU will be without star runner Leonard Fournette and will lean on their passing game more than they would like in this game.
