Auburn is an exciting team to watch, especially with Sharife Cooper leading their 71st ranked scoring offense, however, the Tigers are one of the worst defensive teams in the county and come into this game ranked 305th in scoring defense & 206th in defensive FG%. Florida picked up a much-needed win against Georgia and between the fact that the Gators have shown they can win on the road with a victory at West Virginia at the end of January and that their offense should be able to put up plenty of points, I am taking Florida and the point in this one. Good Luck!
