The Idaho Vandals and the Florida Gators meet in week 12 college football action from Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Idaho Vandals come into this game looking to bounce back after falling to 4-6 on the year after a 46-27 loss to Montana in their last outing. Mason Petrino threw for 310 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception while Isaiah Saunders rushed for 123 yards. David Ungerer led the Vandals receiving corps with 7 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown while Cutrell Haywood added 6 grabs for 70 yards in the losing effort for Idaho.

The Florida Gators will look to build some steam after rallying to pull off a 35-31 win over South Carolina in their last outing. Feleipe Franks has thrown for 1,756 yards, 17 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 56.9% passing, while Jordan Scarlett and Lamical Perine have combined to rush for 1,216 yards and 8 touchdowns this year. Van Jefferson leads Florida with 24 grabs for 312 yards and 4 touchdowns while Freddie Swain has 5 touchdown catches this season. As a team, Florida is averaging 398.2 yards of total offense and 31 points per game this season.

The Vandals made the drop to the FCS and the Big Sky, and Idaho was expected to compete for the title and a playoff spot this season. However, Idaho has had issues against FCS competition, and the Gators are a far way away from that talent level. The Gators are also brimming with confidence after rallying to come back against South Carolina. I just don't see Idaho's struggles ending against the Gators, so I'll lay the points with Florida here.
