GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) No one needs to remind Florida what happened the last two years. No one needs to remind LSU what happened the last two weeks.

Those vivid and somewhat painful memories give the 10th-ranked Gators and fourth-ranked Tigers something to prove when they meet in The Swamp on Saturday.

Florida would like nothing more than to avenge consecutive losses to LSU, including a humbling, 41-11 beatdown in Baton Rouge last season. The Tigers have been far from perfect in their last two games - closer-than-expected wins against Auburn and lower division Towson.

How the Gators (4-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) and Tigers (5-0, 1-0) respond probably will determine who remains undefeated and who is left scrambling in its division race.
