Florida Football Hosts No. 2 Florida State

Florida football has one more game on the docket and that is against rival Florida State at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

After six straight losses, including a 26-20 loss against Georgia Southern, things don’t get any easier for Florida. The 4-7 Gators will take on number two FSU. It is the first 11-0 start for the Seminoles since they brought home a national title in 1999.

The Seminoles are led by Heisman hopeful, redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston. Winston has thrown for over 3100 yards with 32 passing touchdowns and only seven interceptions this season.

The Seminoles are coming of a 80-14 win against Idaho. Winston threw for 225 yards and four touchdowns in the win.

FSU has set the single season ACC record with 607 points. They have scored 40 or more ponts 11 straight weeks which ties the FBS mark set by the 2005 Texas Longhorns.

The Gators will have their hands full on both sides of the ball. UF will have more than the FSU’s offense to contend with as they have to find ways to put points on the scoreboard. The Orange and Blue are ranked 110th in scoring offense.

The Seminoles lead the nation with 23 interceptions and have more players with an interception than a reception. FSU has given up 14 points just twice all season and have outscored their opponents 198-20 in their last three outings.

The Gators won the 2012 matchup against the 10-1 Seminoles 37-26 at Doak Campbell Stadium.  Florida leads the all-time series 34-21-2 and also holds the advantage 20-9-1 advantage in Gainesville.
