Challenges for Missouri
Florida relies heavily on quarterback Anthony Richardson. Richardson has personally scored 30 points for Florida. If you add in his four touchdown throws he is overall responsible for nine Gator touchdowns or 63 points. A very solid runner for Florida, Richards averages 5.7 yards per carry. His best game running the ball was in the opening win over Utah when he ran for 106 yards and three scores. This season Richardson has displayed passing accuracy on the field that’s helped his team be competitive. He has 73 completions in 131 attempts for 1,116 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions. Against Tennessee, he had over 400 yards passing in the narrow loss. Mizzou’s defense has to keep Richardson contained or it could be a rough game for the Tigers.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPNU Network.
