LSU is used to success and has compiled an 802-415-47 (.653) all-time record, the 12th most wins in the nation and 14th best winning percentage. The Tigers have won three national championships (1958, 2003 and 2007) and 15 conference titles, the last coming in 2011. LSU has qualified for 50 bowl games, going 26-23-1, including a 40-32 win over Central Florida in last season's Fiesta Bowl.
Led by Heisman contender quarterback Joe Burrow, the Tigers' offense is tough to stop.

The pair have combined for 53 receptions for 998 yards and 13 touchdowns.
But just because the Tigers are loaded on offense does not guarantee they will cover the LSU vs. Florida spread on Saturday.
