Florida-Alabama Series Prediction

The Gators, like Vandy, are always loaded with talent. You can’t say the same thing about the other 12 teams in the SEC. Last season was not up to Gator standards but the Gators have looked much improved early in the 2022 season. They should be able to take 2 of 3 games from the Crimson Tide.

Florida 2 wins, Alabama 1 win
