The Florida Gators and South Carolina Gamecocks clash Saturday in week 11 SEC college football action at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The South Carolina Gamecocks look to build on their 6-3 record. The Florida Gators look for a win after splitting their last 8 games.

The South Carolina Gamecocks have won their last 2 road games. Spencer Rattler is completing 64.5 percent of his passes for 1,823 yards, 8 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Antwane Wells Jr. and Jalen Brooks have combined for 959 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Austin Stogner has 18 receptions. The South Carolina Gamecocks ground game is averaging 136.4 yards per contest, and MarShawn Lloyd leads the way with 556 yards and 9 touchdowns. Defensively, South Carolina is allowing 24.9 points and 372.2 yards per game. Nick Emmanwori leads the South Carolina Gamecocks with 60 tackles, Jordan Burch has 3.5 sacks and Marcellas Dial has 2 interceptions.

The Florida Gators have won 4 of their last 6 home games. Anthony Richardson is completing 55.7 percent of his passes for 1,839 yards, 9 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Justin Shorter and Ricky Pearsall have combined for 877 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Xzavier Henderson has 36 receptions. The Florida Gators ground game is averaging 208.4 yards per contest, and Montrell Johnson Jr. leads the way with 549 yards and 8 touchdowns. Defensively, Florida is allowing 29.2 points and 447.3 yards per game. Rashad Torrence II leads the Florida Gators with 71 tackles, Amari Burney has 4 sacks and Jaydon Hill has 2 interceptions.

The Gamecocks are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 conference games. The Gators are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Gamecocks last 7 road games. The over is 5-2 in Gators last 7 games overall. The Gamecocks are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Florida and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

I’m not sure what the Florida Gators have done this season to deserve to lay more than a touchdown in a conference game, and I’m not buying it. Florida still has issues throwing the ball, turns the ball over at times, and the defense is pathetic for the most part. Say what you want about the South Carolina Gamecocks, but they have a playmaker at quarterback, and they’re 50th in scoring offense. Florida should win at home, but the Gators are sloppy and have most games come down to the wire. Give me the points.
