The Florida State Seminoles will travel to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to take on the Florida Gators this Saturday afternoon in College Football action.

The Florida State Seminoles improved to 5-6 on the season after defeating the Boston College Eagles, 26-23, this past Saturday. Florida State led by a 19-3 margin at halftime and pulled ahead by a 26-3 margin early in the 3rd quarter on a 15-yard TD reception by Malik McClain, however, the Seminoles needed a late interception to hang on for the victory after Boston College fought back to make it a game late. Florida State outgained Boston College by a 365-318 margin and won the turnover battle by a 1-0 margin in the victory. Leading the way for the Seminoles was QB Jordan Travis who completed 20 of 34 passes for 251 yards & 3 TD.

The Florida Gators dropped to 5-6 on the season after being defeated by the Missouri Tigers, 24-23, this past Saturday. Florida was able to force OT after a 33-yard FG by Chris Howard tied the game midway through the 4th quarter and scored a TD on the opening possession of OT, however, Missouri was able to answer with a 13-yard TD run by Tyler Badie and pulled off the upset victory after converting the two-point conversation. Florida outgained Missouri by a 360-286 margin, however, didn’t force a turnover in the loss. Leading the way for the Gators was QB Emory Jones who completed 20 of 32 passes for 231 yards while rushing for 45 yards on 17 carries.

The Seminoles are 10-3 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, however, are just 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 road games. The Gators are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a losing record & 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite.

These teams have been heading in different directions in the 2nd half of the season as the Seminoles come into this game winning 5 of their last 7 games to give them a chance to make a Bowl game, while Florida has lost 4 of their last 5 games and recently fired their head coach, Dan Mullen, after last week’s lost at Missouri. Florida has suffered some embarrassing losses as of late against South Carolina & Missouri it’s concerning that the offense has struggled lately putting up just 40 combined points in their last two conference games. Florida State has been much better defensively as of late and as I think their rush defense will be able to give Florida some trouble, I think Jordan Travis and the Seminoles offense will do enough against the Gators to win this game outright. Take Florida State on the M/L.
