The Sunshine Showdown rivalry features the Florida Gators and the Florida State Seminoles. They will be playing for the Makala trophy. While this is the 63rd meeting between these two teams, it is the first for new head coaches, Dan Mullen and Willie Taggart.
The Seminoles have won the last five meetings with the Gators. They will be looking to become bowl eligible in what they hope is their six consecutive win over the Gators.
The Gators have had many ups and downs this season under the first year with Dan Mullen at the helm. They lost to Kentucky for the first time in 30+ years. Then they defeated LSU, who is still ranked as a top ten team. Now they look to finish the season strong with a win over their in-state rivals.
The Gators have definitely had their fair share of struggles this year when it comes to their offense. They are averaging 33.9 points per game, 203 rushing yards per game, and 213.8 passing yards per game. The Seminoles are better at defending the run, so look for the Florida quarterback to throw the ball often.
The Gators defense have also had very good games and very poor games this season. They allowed 30+ to teams like Georgia and Missouri, but shutdown teams like LSU. They should however have success against the Seminoles since they do a great job defending the pass.
Florida State Seminoles
The first year under Willie Taggart has been a struggle as the Seminoles are fighting desperately to become bowl eligible. They won last week to improve their record to 5-6, so they must beat the Gators to play in the bowl season.
Other than their passing offense, the Seminoles have been very poor when they have the ball. They only average 22.6 points per game, which ranks near the bottom. Since Florida’s strength is their pass defense, the Seminoles will need to find a way to establish the run to keep Florida on their guard. Unfortunately the Seminoles are one of the worst in the country at running the ball, so this will likely be a struggle all game long.
The Seminoles will need to force the Gators to run the ball since they are terrible at defending the pass. They at least have a decent run defense so if they can make the Gators run, they may have a chance to upset the Gators and become bowl eligible.
