Alabama-Florida Prediction

Alabama (2-4 SEC) visits 1-5 Florida. The Gators have had a very rough first two weekends of SEC play. They aren’t nearly as bad as their record looks. Florida is loaded with talent but very young talent. Alabama is improved but still has a way to go before winning a series in Gainesville. Florida 2 wins, Alabama 1 win.
