Samford Injuries and Suspensions
Challenges for Florida
I’m not sure what has happened to Florida. They went from playing within 2 points of beating Alabama to getting thrashed by lowly South Carolina. They had better take Samford seriously. Samford’s quarterback is Liam Welch. In nine games this season Welch has completed 256 of 385 passes for 2,697 yards, 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. During his career at Samford Welch has over 5,800 passing yards for 38 touchdowns. Welch is also a running threat having run for 875 yards and 13 touchdowns during his Samford career. Overlook Samford if you want. I guarantee you that the Bulldogs won’t overlook Florida. They can smell a wounded giant.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network + | ESPN+ Network.
