Comments

I’m going with Auburn because they’ve played a much tougher schedule than Florida. The stats are pretty much even in this one but remember two of Florida’s wins have come over FCS teams. That is not to say that Florida can’t win this one. They could, they are playing in Gainesville which is a tough road venue and Dan Mullen is a heck of a coach. I just think based on the information we have, Auburn is more likely to win.
