Florida vs. Florida State 2012: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

No. 4 Florida clings to slim national title hopes when they visit No. 10 Florida State this Saturday.

Thanks to all the BCS craziness last weekend, there are still national title implications on the line when the No. 4 Florida Gators take on the No. 10 Florida State Seminoles in their annual rivalry game this Saturday.

Florida needs a win and some help for a chance to reach the BCS title game, and just getting that win on the road against Florida State will be tough. The Gators visit Tallahassee with a banged-up starting quarterback, as Jeff Driskel will be back in the lineup after spraining his ankle on Nov. 10.

The Gators' offense has struggled much of the year even with Driskel at the helm, and they will be facing a very tough defense in the Seminoles. Florida State is giving up just 13.1 points per game, which is nearly as good as the renowned Florida defense, who is allowing a puny 11.7 points per game.

Meanwhile, the Florida State offense will be a huge challenge for the stout Florida defense. The explosive Seminoles attack is putting up 42.9 points per game, good for seventh in the country.

Florida has not beaten Florida State since Tim Tebow was a team captain back in 2009. The Seminoles won 21-7 last year in Gainesville.

Game time: 3:30 p.m. ET at Doak Campbell Stadium

TV: ABC

Odds: According to OddsShark, the Seminoles are 7-point favorites.
