Florida vs. South Florida Football Series History
Florida leads 2-0
The honeymoon is over for Billy Napier. Losing to Kentucky in football is frowned upon at the University of Florida. The Gators have to figure out how to get a little better in just about every area. Converting on just 25 percent of third downs is a recipe for losing. Conversely, allowing opposing offenses to convert on 50 percent of third downs is tough on a team’s winning prospects. We need to keep in mind though that Florida has probably had the two toughest 2022 opening games of any SEC team. All that said the Gators should roll on Saturday.
