The Florida Gators look to remain unbeaten and beat their sixth ranked team since 2012. Will Grier is completing 62.6 percent of his passes for 725 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. Grier has thrown a pick in three straight games. Antonio Callaway and Brandon Powell have combined for 334 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Demarcus Robinson has 20 receptions. The Florida Gators ground game is averaging 154.7 yards per contest, and Kelvin Taylor leads the way with 256 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Florida is allowing 18.3 points and 298.3 yards per game. Jarrad Davis leads the Gators with 32 tackles, Jonathan Bullard has four sacks and Vernon Hargreaves, III has two interceptions. Trip Thurman and C'yontai Lewis are questionable while Alex Anzalone is out.
The Rebels are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in October and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game. The Gators are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Rebels are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
This is going to be an ugly defensive game as both teams have one of the top defensive units in the entire country. When you add in the fact it's a night home game in the Swamp, you have to give the slight edge to the Gators. While Ole Miss can win this game, I think it's going to come down to the wire with both defenses controlling the tempo. Whoever wins the turnover battle wins this contest.
Give me the points.
