BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

It may be early in the week, but not too early, to start talking about the showdown in Gainesville. Here's several stories from around the country to get you ready for Saturday's big game:

From Gator Nation:

It's looking more and more like Florida will have linebacker Jelani Jenkins back in the lineup for its home game against No. 4 LSU on Saturday. His return couldn't have come at a better time for the 10th-ranked Gators.

From the Bradenton Herald:

Muschamp said he wants the Gators to play fast and physical, and that means being comfortable in the game plan and what they're asked to do.

From the Gainesville Sun:

"We won't see the same LSU team," Muschamp said of a Tiger team that escaped Auburn with a 12-10 win on Sept. 22 and held off Towson 38-22 last Saturday."

From ESPN:

One league having five teams in the top 10 in October speaks for itself. Even so, this is a chance for Florida, Georgia, LSU and South Carolina all to break out a bit from Alabama's shadow and prove their worth as national championship contenders.

From CBS Sports:

Will LSU flip the switch after a sloppy win over FCS school Towson? Will Florida end its pattern of starting hot and fading when the competition gets tough? The Gators are 1-7 in October the past two years. Points will be at a premium: LSU allows 12.6 points per game, Florida 12.8.

From WAFB Sports:

The coach said the opportunity to go play in "The Swamp" is always a great challenge to any team, but one his football team looks forward to.

From NESN:

This game has become a more uncertain proposition than anyone could have anticipated at the beginning of the season.

From the Bleacher Report:

No. 10 Florida will have to put up points against a strong LSU defense (a unit that allows just 217 YPG, second in the SEC) if the Gators hope to win.
