On paper, it was supposed to be the biggest home match of the Southeastern Conference season.

The SEC office even made it the "Match of the Week" in its weekly press release.

Someone forgot to tell LSU.

The UF volleyball team swept through the LSU, making the second-best team (again, on paper) in the SEC look like North Carolina State.

(UF destroyed NC State in August, and the Wolfpack have only 3 wins all season - none in the Atlantic Coast Conference.)

It wasn't even as close as the score would make you think.

UF won the match 30-20, 30-17, 30-18, but LSU got seven points in the first game off UF service errors. The Gators were better in offense and defense, serving and blocking, passing and digging.

Amid the heckling from the student section and the standing ovations from the rest of the O'Connell Center, LSU looked hopelessly lost.

Ever since UF lost to Arkansas two weeks ago, the team has been unstoppable.

If the Gators play like they did tonight for the rest of the year, the SEC does not stand a chance.

Sunday's opponent, Mississippi, had better be prepared.

Look out, Rebels.
