There's a lot of Florida football being played on Saturday.
There's a full slate of local action on Saturday's college football schedule, with schools big and small going for wins in the final stretch of their seasons. A full rundown of Florida-centric football and game times are below, including the Florida Gators and the FSU Seminoles. TV information is included when available.
Florida St. Seminoles vs. Maryland Terrapins
The Seminoles are 9-1 and can clinch a spot in the ACC Championship game, and they're facing a team that has resorted to starting a freshman linebacker under center. The Terrapins have suffered what might be college football's worst luck this season, having four different quarterbacks go down to injury. Shawn Petty has gone 15 of 30 for 156 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in his first two games.
Kickoff: 12 p.m. ET, ESPNU/WatchESPN
Jacksonville State Gamecocks at Florida Gators
The No. 6 Gators will have sophomore Jacoby Brissett under center as starting quarterback Jeff Driskel is sidelined with an ankle injury. Brisset went 6 of 8 for 64 yards with one touchdown in his last effort, and on Saturday, he'll be facing the No. 82 defense in the FCS. The Gamecocks have averaged 38.5 points while winning three of their last four, but contending with the Florida defense will be a new challenge for the team.
Kickoff: 1 p.m. ET, ESPN3
South Florida Bulls at Miami Hurricanes
The 5-5 Hurricanes are one of three ACC Coastal teams with a 4-3 record, so a little luck and a pair of wins could very well put them in the ACC championship game. They'll have to start with a win over the 3-6 Bulls, who have had a disappointing season and are coming off their first win in seven games.
Kickoff: 3 p.m. ET
Central Florida Knights at Tulsa Golden Hurricane
In what may be a preview of the Conference USA championship, the Knights visit the Golden Hurricane. Both teams boast an 8-2 record and are undefeated in conference play. Tulsa enters with the No. 11 rushing attack in the FBS, averaging 244.6 yards per game, while UCF's middle-of-the-pack rush defense is allowing an average of 152.3.
Kickoff: 12 p.m. ET
JU Dolphins vs. Drake Bulldogs
Two 7-3 teams close their season against each other, though both are below the top of the standings in the Pioneer conference. The Dolphins have lost two of their last three after starting the season 6-1, with an injury to starting quarterback Kade Bell to blame for much of the struggle. Sophomore Trevius Folston has stepped in and appears to be settling in to things, but the Bulldogs are a stout opponent and need a win if they want to have any prayer of finishing on top of the conference.
Kickoff: 1 p.m. ET
Bethune-Cookman Wildcats at Florida A&M Rattlers
The final game of the season for both teams will be played at a neutral location, but it's tough to expect the game to be a 50/50 affair. The Wildcats are 8-2 and 7-0 in MEAC play, while the Rattlers are 4-6 and 4-3 in the MEAC. Bethune-Cookman's defense is the best in the FCS, and FAMU has had trouble finding consistency on offense.
