The Florida Gators continue their trek up the standings as they look for another win against the FAU Owls on Saturday.
This non conference clash can serve as a tune up for them, but this is the week they can really get some help from others too.
While the FAU Owls bring in a 2-8 record, this is also a chance for Florida to run away with this game early and get their starters some rest heading into the final stretch of the season.
FAU has really done everything wrong this season. At just 2-8, they come in off another loss, this time to Middle Tennessee State 24-17.
The loss was the 5th in 6 games for them as they have never picked up any momentum or traction this season. The two wins for the Owls came against a weak Charlotte team 17-7 and to FIU 31-17.
The problem all season for FAU has been scoring. Overall this team averages just 22.3 points per game. That is a bit skewed of a stat too.
The Owl dropped a 44 spot in the overtime loss to Tulsa to kick the season off, but have scored more than 20 points just 2 times since then. When you’re conceding 29.4 per game, things typically won’t be going well for you in the win/loss column.
The Owls are led by Jaquez Johnson, who has thrown half of his touchdown passes over the last two games. Johnson has 8 touchdowns on the season to go along with 4 interceptions.
The Gators may not have the firepower or explosive playmaking ability the rest of the top teams in the country have, but they are finding winning games and that is clearly the most important thing right now.
Florida has rattled off 3 straight wins since their only loss on the season to LSU and the previous two have been far from pretty.
At home as 21 point favorites against Vanderbilt, the Gators managed only 3 field goals (1 of those late) to secure a 9-7 win. Then last week, they scored 24 and got some solid play from their defense, but still only beat South Carolina by 10 points.
The Gators rely heavily on RB Kelvin Taylor, who has scored 12 touchdowns this season. Taylor has kept the Gators in most of these games and has rushed for 100 yards in 2 of the last 3 contests.
With the offensive struggles Florida incurs at times, their defense has really bailed them out. The Gators D is among the best in the nation as they allow just 14.5 points per game.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Prediction
The Gators haven’t been the prettiest Top 10 team this season, but they continue to find ways to win. Here, laying a big spread is tough, even against this FAU team. Florida will likely bench their starters at the first chance with Florida State and the SEC Championship Game looming.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: FAU ATS
Even just 1 FAU touchdown would go a long way here. Still, a lower scoring affair shapes up nicely for grabbing all these points.
