Gainesville, FL---With two starts, and two wins under his belt, quarterback Tyler Murphy is looking ahead to his biggest test as Florida's starting qb.
He and the Gators travel to Baton Rouge Saturday for their annual war with LSU. Murphy coming off another solid performance in the win over Arkansas, not great, but solid. 16 of 22, 240 yards, 3 td's, no picks. Murphy being called by some simply a "game manger" and that's just fine with him!
"Since I've been here" Murphy saying Monday "Alabama's been one of the top teams and I've been watching them, trying to copycat A.J. McCarron a little bit. He does a great job of just managing the game and taking what the defense gives him. And now his third year as the starter he's making a lot of plays and he's put the team on his back a few times. So it all starts with just being a game manager. So I don't take any offense to that."
LSU comes in 5-1, following a blowout win at Mississippi State. Their only blemish the 3 point loss in Athens. Game time for that Florida game, 2:30 central on our sister station WECP. LSU favored by 7.
