UMass heads to Florida on Saturday, October 23rd, to face the Seminoles at Doak Campbell Stadium in a non-conference college football matchup. This is the first time the two teams have ever faced off. 

UMass is coming off of two weeks rest after ending a 16 game losing streak with a win against UConn. The Minutemen are led by head coach and former FSU offensive coordinator Walt Bell. Bell has lined up multiple QBs under center and has seen decent play from his freshmen. The Minutemen operate best on the ground with running back Ellis Merriweather. He leads the team in rushing with 415 yards on 87 carries, and he was a huge part of their win against UConn with 172 total yards. Other than that, there isn’t much going for this team. 

For the Seminoles, it’s homecoming week. They have won their last 8 homecoming games and are coming off of a bye week which helps explain why they are 35 plus point favorites here. That being said, the Seminoles still have a lot to prove with a 2-4 record. In their two wins they ran for over 230 yards. Since UMass is one of the worst teams in the nation on 3rd down defense, expect them to go to their ground game as well.

Both of these teams can run, but Florida actually has a definite starting QB in Jordan Travis, who has struggled at times, but seems to be gaining confidence. Look for him to have a good game against a lesser UMass team. 

Florida seems to be settling into itself as a team. They definitely get the win here, but UMass will bring their best after ending that losing streak. With the hectic events of homecoming and a look ahead to Clemson next week, this feels like too many points for Florida.
