South Carolina-Florida Prediction

Here are two proud SEC programs that have fallen on hard times. Florida gave up 40 runs in a series loss to Ole Miss last weekend. South Carolina lost a series at Alabama. Florida has the better talent in this one. The Gators should win but the Gamecocks likely take one game. Florida 2 wins, South Carolina 1 win.
