The Gators didn’t play a football game against the ‘Noles this season. The rivals will meet in the non-conference this basketball season, however.
UF comes into Tallahassee 3–0, just outside the AP Top 25 and just inside it in the Coach’s Poll.
Its star is a 6’5″ guard from Oak Hill Academy and SEC Preseason Player of the Year, Keyontae Johnson.
Johnson led last year’s team in scoring as a sophomore and has so far taken another step forward here early in this season. He is averaging just less than twenty points per game on .639 from the field.
Johnson isn’t exactly a playmaker (1.4 assists per game in his career) but he does most of his damage inside the three-point arc, which gives Florida’s outside shooters room to operate.
Tre Mann and Noah Locke, Florida’s next two highest scorers, have made about two threes each, per game, so far.
Florida started its season with a seven-point win over Army, followed by a blowout of the ACC’s Boston College the next day. Most recently, it blew out the in-state Stetson Hatters by forty-six points.
Florida State Seminoles
There will be no blowout for either side in this particular matchup. Last season, Florida State was the much better side and won in the Swamp by twelve points, which is lopsided as this rivalry goes.
But the Seminoles were trending toward national championship contenders when the novel coronavirus halted play a season ago and they have since lost significant talent.
Freshman Patrick Williams went early in the lottery to the Chicago Bulls. Sophomore Devin Vassell went in it late. Trent Forrest graduated and has signed on with the Utah Jazz since going undrafted.
What’s left is MJ Walker, who will be asked to score more than he ever has to this point in his college career.
Balsa Koprivica, a 7’1″ sophomore from Serbia, will see serious playing time after getting his feet wet last year. He’s so far averaging 12.5 points and 6.5 rebounds as a starter.
Junior forward Raiquan Gray played good minutes for Head Coach Leonard Hamilton last season but takes on a new role as a leader this season.
After that, FSU’s talent is relatively unproven. It’s near certain to prove itself eventually, playing for a program as strong as FSU’s; it’s just a matter of when it will.

Free Florida Gators vs. Florida State Seminoles NCAAB Prediction: UF revenge spot.
FSU did it to the Gators last season. This time around, UF returns the favor.
Florida State garners much respect for all the success it has had in the last decade, really. That’s all good and well but Florida has the more experienced, and thus more cohesive unit at this material moment.
So give the the Gators to pull the mild upset. I’ll have some on the moneyline and with the points.
