The 6-5 Florida Gators and 7-4 Florida State Seminoles have had disappointing seasons, but both fanbases would still revel in a victory over their Sunshine State rival in the final regular season game for both teams.
The Gators are one week removed from a come-from-behind 54-32 victory over Furman of the FCS. The Seminoles lost a heartbreaker 14-13 to Virginia last Saturday, snapping a five game winning streak.
The key matchup Saturday evening is likely to be Florida's offensive weapons, mainly veteran quarterback John Brantley and speedsters Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, against a stout Florida State defense, led by defensive ends Brandon Jenkins and Bjoern Werner. The Gators offensive line has been suspect all year, so Brantley may be in for a rough night.
