Not so fast, my friend
Lee Corso will have a decision to make. Will he wear the Gator head or not? Three weeks since he called Florida "soft" before the Gators won held Tennessee to minus-11 yards during a win in Knoxville, Corso will be in Gainesville this weekend with the ESPN GameDay crew for the LSU-Florida game.

Florida trip key to LSU's chances

Gator bait? LSU insists it's ready to strut stuff
Tiger Stadium has been rocking for LSU this season. The four games have been a smorgasbord of offensive fireworks and defensive shutdowns against lesser competition.
