Challenges for Florida
This is a battle of two proud Florida institutions of higher learning. Earlier in the season Florida State looked like a train wreck while Florida looked powerful after their near-upset of Alabama. Now those roles have changed. Florida is in disarray and seems to have unraveled. On the field, Jordan Travis is the Seminoles’ quarterback. So far this season, in nine games, Travis has completed 104 of 165 passes for 1,337 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions. Travis is also a solid running threat with 428 rushing yards with six touchdowns. Travis will be a big challenge for the Gator defense.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
