The Florida Gators look to get back in the win column on Saturday when they host the Missouri Tigers. Florida lost for the first time this season last week to the rival Georgia Bulldogs, 17-9. A win would have clinched the SEC East title for the Gators.

Florida (7-1, 6-1) will take on SEC newcomer Missouri (4-4, 1-4) in what will be the last in-conference game of the regular season for the Gators. Florida must beat Missouri to have any hope of playing in the SEC championship game and then also hope that Georgia losses one of its remaining SEC games to Ole Miss or Auburn.

The Miami Hurricanes (4-4, 3-2) will try to snap a three-game losing streak when they host Virginia Tech (4-4, 2-2) on Thursday. Miami needs to win two of its last four games to become bowl eligible.

The Central Florida Knights (6-2, 4-0) look to stay unbeaten in Conference-USA when they host the SMU Mustangs (4-4, 3-1). South Florida (2-6, 0-4) hopes to snap a six-game losing streak and get its first Big East win of the season when it hosts Connecticut (3-5, 0-3).

Florida State is off this week.
