Game Preview: #18 Florida Gators vs. UAB

Matchup: #18 Florida Gators vs. Alabama-Birmingham
Game Time: 7:00 pm
Coverage: FSN, 1250 AM
Staff Prediction: Florida 38, UAB 10

For our full game preview and analysis, see J.C. De La Torre’s work. Here’s a brief snippet:

John Brantley and the Gator passing game moved the ball well against FAU as he threw for 229 yds and completed 70% of his passes, but Brantley also tossed two interceptions against a subpar secondary.

If Florida is going to be successful this season, Brantley has to do a better job at protecting the football. […]

Florida gets its second sacrificial lamb of the season – but UAB could be a little feisty – at least for a little while. They have some talent (certainly a lot more than FAU did) and could offer a bit of a challenge for the Gator defense.
