BATON ROUGE, La. Eric Decker Jersey . -- Historical rivals LSU and Florida are finally ready to line up -- and still with a lot on the line -- albeit in a different place and some six weeks after they were supposed to meet before Hurricane Matthew blew ashore in early October.Whether either teams offense shows up is another matter. The No. 16 Tigers and 21st-ranked Gators field two of the more suffocating defenses in the Southeastern Conference.Their defense is one of the best in the country, LSU coach Ed Orgeron said of the Gators, calling Floridas Geoff Collins a dynamic defensive coordinator.They pressure the quarterback, and they have a lot of speed, Orgeron said.Florida (7-2, 5-2 SEC), which can win the SEC East Division with a victory on Saturday, enters the game leading the league in pass defense, allowing 155.1 yards per game, and ranks second in total defense (266.8 yards allowed per game). In question, however, is whether the unit has the depth to hold up in Death Valley with at least four defensive starters expected to miss the game with injuries .LSU (6-3, 4-2), which could get a Sugar Bowl bid by winning its last two games, has allowed just 10 touchdowns all season, fewest in the nation, and never more than two TDs in a single game.Only two weeks ago, the Tigers allowed just 10 points to a No. 1 Alabama squad which has averaged 44.7 points in its nine other games.When asked this week if he was eager to prove which team has the best defense, LSU defensive end Arden Key answered, I feel like weve already proved it.Both teams call themselves DBU, because of the NFL prospects they have annually in their respective defensive backfields. Floridas 12 interceptions -- including four by Jalen Tabor -- are tied for second in the SEC, while LSU has nine interceptions, including two each by TreDavious White and Donte Jackson.And both defenses bring heat on QBs. Florida has racked up 27 sacks and LSU 24.LSUs Key, who has nine sacks, has a chance to threaten Tigers single-season record of 12.Im going to try to get that in the Florida game, Key said.---Some other things to watch when Florida visits LSU:QB REUNION: The strength of both defenses makes this game look perilous for both quarterbacks, who began the season as backups. LSUs Danny Etling and Floridas Austin Appleby are former teammates at Purdue who transferred after losing starting jobs with the Boilermakers. A combination of circumstances and their own growth have allowed them to re-emerge. I want to know whos evaluating those quarterbacks at Purdue, Orgeron said. I want to give them a call.CHANGE OF VENUE: This game was supposed to be played Oct. 8 in The Swamp, where Florida is 5-0 this season. After much handwringing , the game was moved to LSU, which refused to give up its previously scheduled Nov. 19 home date, but agreed to buy out its originally schedule opponent, South Alabama. Florida will host LSU the next two years.ROAD WOES: Still looking for a signature road win, Florida coach McElwain is prepared for the worst in Baton Rouge. I dont know how they could call my mother names, McElwain said. My mother is 95 years old. Shes awesome. Shes one of the most loving, caring people in the world. And theyre going to say everything they can about my mother. Thats what its all about. It will be fun. The Gators havent had much fun on the road, losing every tough test away from home in McElwains two-year tenure. They lost at LSU last year and at Tennessee and at Arkansas this season.RUSHING TANDEM: if Florida manages to contain LSU star running back Leonard Fournette, they still have to contend with Derrius Guice. Last week, Guice became the second LSU rusher to surpass 250 yards in a game this season, with 252 at Arkansas . Earlier this season, Fournette set LSUs single-game record with 284 yards against Mississippi .PAIRING DOWN: The Gators opened the season with a four-player rotation at running back. Its basically become a one-man show lately. Jordan Scarlett ran 20 times for a career-high 134 yards against South Carolina last week , clearly moving in front of true freshman Lamical Perine, fumble-prone Mark Thompson and disgruntled backup Jordan Cronkrite. Scarlett has led the team in carries for six consecutive games.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org---AP Sports Writer Mark Long in Gainesville, Florida, contributed to this report. Jayon Brown Jersey . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. DaQuan Jones Jersey . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. http:///...woodyard-jersey.html . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. PHILADELPHIA -- Shavar Newkirk scored 28 points and Lamarr Kimble added 16 -- both career highs -- to help Saint Josephs hold on for a 77-76 win over Toledo in the season opener for both teams on Saturday night.Newkirk hit 9 of 16 from the field, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range, with a career-best seven rebounds and three assists. James Demery added 11 points and tied a career high with eight rebounds.Steve Taylor Jr.s jumper gave Toledo a 71-70 lead with 2:04 to play but St. Brice McCain Jersey. Joes got a pair of offensive rebounds on its next possession before a putback by Markell Lodge, and then a jumper and two free throws by Newkirk, gave the Hawks the lead -- 76-71 -- for good.Jonathan Williams led Toledo with 18 points. Steve Taylor Jr. added 14 points with seven rebounds and Daniel Dzierzawski had 13 points.
