A hurricane watch has been issued for much of Florida’s eastern coast as Hurricane Matthew approaches the Sunshine state. The Tigers are getting ready to play the Gators on Saturday morning at 11 AM. Officials from both schools had a conference call earlier today and they plan on moving forward with the early Saturday kick-off in Gainesville.

It’s still unclear if running back Leonard Fournette will play this weekend. He’s already missed two games because of an ankle injury. There have been camera shots that have shown Fournette not looking happy on the sidelines, but his back-up Derrius Guice, says the star running back is very supportive of his teammates. LSU players and fans are hopeful Fournette will be available to play on Saturday. Guice was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week this past week.
