Florida vs. FSU prediction and game preview. Projecting who wins the matchup between the Gators and Seminoles.


Florida vs. FSU Game Preview

When: Saturday, November 26 – 8:00 p.m. ET
Where: Doak Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee, FL
TV Broadcast: ABC

Florida used a great goal line stand to beat LSU 16-10 and clinch the SEC East. Running back Jordan Scarlett had a big game on the ground, rushing for 108 yards while quarterback Austin Appleby hit Tyrie Cleveland with a 98-yard touchdown pass for the Gators only touchdown.

The Seminoles creamed Syracuse, 45-14, with running back Dalvin Cook going off for 225 yards and four touchdowns as he became the school’s all-time leading rusher.

What To Know About Florida

If offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier is a smart man, he will continually have Appleby feed the ball to Scarlett. The passing game hit one big play, and besides that, didn’t do much against LSU. Trying to control the ball on the ground and win time of possession will be key for the Gators in the hostile environment

The defense has been winning games for Florida all season, and it did it again this past Saturday with a goal-line stand as time expired. Keeping Cook from getting rolling and putting pressure on quarterback Deondre Francois is pertinent to stopping the Seminoles.

What to Know About FSU

Cook has been special this season, rushing for 1,467 yards and 17 touchdowns. In seven of the last eight games, he has gone for more than 100 yards on the ground. Doing that against a Gators defense that is No. 20 in the nation, allowing just 122.10 yards per game, will be tough. Francois must be able to throw the ball to open the running lanes as the Seminoles can’t be one-dimensional and be successful.

The Seminoles will try to stop the Gators running game and make Appleby pass the ball to beat them. If they can do that, Florida will struggle moving the chains.

Advantages

Offense: FSU. Will the Gators ever find a quarterback?

Defense: Florida. The Gators are SEC East champs due to the defense, which is one of the nation’s best.

Special Teams: Florida. Eddy Piniero was clutch in the LSU game, making all three field goal attempts.

Coaching: FSU. Jimbo Fisher’s name is being thrown around for a couple of jobs. Will he be in Tallahassee next season?

Intangibles: Florida. The Gators still have an outside chance at the College Football Playoff.

Matchup To Watch

Dalvin Cook vs. Florida rushing defense

The Gators shutting down Cook would go a long way toward a victory.

Florida vs. FSU Betting Odds

Spread: FSU -6.5
Over/Under: None available at time of publication.

Florida vs. FSU Prediction

The tensions are always high between the Gators and Seminoles, so expect some pregame trash talk. Every time you start to count out Florida because of its lack of offense, the defense pulls a victory out. It will be difficult in Tallahassee, as the Seminoles offense is explosive. Expect this one to be close, but the Seminoles will pull this one out at home.

Florida vs. FSU Score Prediction: FSU 23, Florida 17
