Missouri vs. Florida 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Florida looks to bounce back from its first loss of the season as the Gators welcome Missouri to The Swamp.

Looking to get back on track after a crushing loss to the Georgia Bulldogs took control of the SEC East out of their hands, the Florida Gators will welcome the Missouri Tigers to The Swamp in a Saturday afternoon SEC showdown.

Florida had been in control of its own destiny in the SEC East before last Saturday's loss. But with Georgia's victory, the Gators will now need help from someone else in the conference to make the SEC Championship Game.

Against Missouri, the Gators will be faced with a team coming off its first-ever SEC victory after topping the Kentucky Wildcats last weekend. Running back Kendial Lawrence rushed for 108 yards and two touchdowns in Missouri's first SEC victory after four straight losses.

In the loss to Georgia, Florida's offensive attack was shuttered, as the Gators scored nine points on three field goals and turned the ball over six times to the Bulldogs. Running back Mike Gillislee was held to 77 yards and no touchdowns on the day.

Florida dropped to No. 7 in the latest BCS standings after climbing as high as No. 2 the weekend before.

Date and Time: Nov. 3, 12 p.m. ET

Location: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville, Fla.


Odds: Florida is favored by 17 points at home
