LSU head coach Les Miles held his weekly news conference Monday afternoon.

The No. 6 LSU Tigers (5-0, 3-0) will host the No. 8 Florida Gators (6-0, 4-0) Saturday night in Baton Rouge. 

"This is a Top 10 match-up," Miles said. "This is Tiger Stadium at its best."

Just before the news conference, it was learned Florida starting quarterback Will Grier has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NCAA policy on banned drugs. He will not play in Saturday's game.

Miles said his defense is preparing the same way, saying most backups in the SEC can run the team's offense without much change.

He was asked if he banned the players from using Twitter, as there was some back and forth on the social media platform between players from the two teams.

"There's no need for Twitter. The game is played on the field, not in media chat rooms," Miles responded.

Kickoff is scheduled for at 6 p.m. (CST). The game will be televised on ESPN.
