Transcript for Florida Gators match up with LSU Tigers
We are just hours away from this week's college football headliner match-up. Lsu taking on Florida. And rob is in Baton Rouge for all the action and the sausages apparently along with ESPN "Gameday's" Maria Taylor where the excitement is building. Rob, good morning. Reporter: Good morning, whit. Look, boudin is not technically sausage. Right? It's not. Reporter: Maria Taylor joins us. Obviously you didn't get the memo on the cold front. You were supposed to text me the weather when you got here. I thought it was going to be warm, hot, muggy and chilly. Great to see you. And see you too. Reporter: Hot off an impressive win last week. What do you think is going to happen today? We know lsu is a 13 1/2-point favorite and a lot have the tigers winning because of Joe burrow. You'll see a lot of signs about the quarterback here. He is leading an offense that has 416 yards passing per game. That's a lot considering at lsu that doesn't normally happen but across the rivalry. They play every single year. That's what makes it special. Reporter: Because of hurricanes and stuff, they haven't played here in a while. These kids haven't seen this up close. You're right. Since 2015, rob, they have not played here in Baton Rouge and tiger stadium is called death valley for a reason. Because at night there's a completely different feel to it. I mean, these fans G into the game and, again, there's no love they really don't like each other. They love playing against each other. I've been to a couple of games in death valley. The seats rumble. We have a lot of other big games today. What do you have? Let's start with ou Texas. Used to be rivalry but no one could say that so Jalen hurts, the quarterback at Alabama, he was a star of the S.E.C. Offensive player of the year, unseeded by Tua tagovailoa, now the starter at Oklahoma and playing well as a Heisman contender. Texas obviously they want to win a big 12 championship. They beat ou in the match-up last year when they had Kyler Murray, the number one overall pick from a season ago and every single time these two play, you have to throw out all the analytics and stats because you know it's going to be a good game. Ou down by as many as 21 in the match-up the last time they played. Reporter: They're at a neutral field today. That should be interesting. What else do you have? Alabama taking on Texas A&M. Alabama, the number one team in the nation has yet to play a top 25 team. And the aggies roll in at 25 and granted if they lose this game maybe they won't be ranked next season or next week but the reality is Alabama is facing their first really big challenge and they have one of these offenses that lights up the scoreboard too. Tua tagovailoa, he is a Heisman trophy contender. We've loved watching him play and continue to see how they react to a little bit more of a challenge will be fun. Tua is tough but the aggies have a great meteorology program. They have that going for them. Exactly. They could have texted me too about the weather. Michigan against Iowa, lots of big games. Are you going to stick around? We're going to have breakfast cajun style later. I would love to have some breakfast. Can we go inside though? We'll get you a jacket. Maria Taylor, always a pleasure. What do you think of Maria being here, you cool with it? Such a treat. Going to eat breakfast cajun style. Dive into that boudin. Maria is great like the crowd said. I don't even like sports but can listen to Maria talking about
