Breaking Down the Florida Gators Win Total
2020 College Football Season
Florida: O/U 10.0 Wins -- Title Odds: +1400
The Florida Gators will be looking to mirror their season at the very least from 2019. Florida finished the 2019 season with an (11-2) record, while going (6-2) in SEC play. Florida was able to snag a bowl win against Virginia during the Capital One Orange Bowl, 36-28. The offense averaged 33.2 points per game, which ranked 29th in the FBS. The defense was even better, as Florida held opponents to an average of 15.5 points, which ranked 7th. Florida is guided by head coach Dan Mullins. Get College Football Predictions at Pick Dawgz.
Florida was led by quarterback Kyle Trask, after leading the offense to a successful season, after the injury to Feleipe Franks. Trask finished the 2019 campaign with 2,941 passing yards, while throwing 25 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Trask will be back under center for his redshirt senior year. Running back Dameon Pierce is the leading returning rusher, after La’Mical Perine played his senior year a year ago. Pierce rushed for 305 yards and 4 touchdowns. Tight end Kyle Pitts is back for his junior season, after reeling in 54 receptions as a sophomore. Pitts collected 649 yards receiving, while recording 5 touchdowns. The gators lost 2 of their better receivers from the 2019 season, but Trevon Grimes does return. Grimes added 491 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns.
Defensively, Florida registered 49 sacks and 16 interceptions. Florida was stout on defense, while also forcing 8 fumbles. The defense was led by David Reese II, who accumulated 88 tackles as a senior. Zachary Carter and Mohamoud Diabate are the leading returners in sacks. Both contributed 4.5 sacks from a year ago. Donovan Stiner led a talented secondary in interceptions a year ago with 4. CJ Henderson had 11 passes defended.
Let us take a look at the Florida schedule for the 2020 season.
Sept. 5 Eastern Washington
Sept. 12 Kentucky
Sept. 19 South Alabama
Sept. 26 at Tennessee
Oct. 3 South Carolina
Oct. 10 LSU
Oct. 17 at Ole Miss
Oct. 31 Georgia (in Jacksonville)
Nov. 7 at Vanderbilt
Nov. 14 Missouri
Nov. 21 New Mexico State
Nov. 28 at Florida State
Florida opens the season with a non-conference game with FCS foe Eastern Washington. The rest of the non-conference slate for the Gators has the likes of South Alabama, New Mexico State, and Florida State. Florida plays their toughest games on the schedule at home. Florida will see Kentucky, LSU, and Missouri travel to Gainesville, while Florida will tangle with Georgia at a neutral site.
The projected win total is 10 and I like for Florida to cover this, with the worst being a push. The Gators welcome Kyle Trask back, which will go a long way for the 2020 season. Florida will use their home field advantage to win some of their more brutal SEC games. Take Florida to at least get 10 wins for the 2020 season.
