South Carolina vs. Florida

Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 11:01 AM (Williams-Brice Stadium)

FLA -6 O/U 49


The 9th ranked Florida Gators travel to South Carolina for a Saturday morning SEC matchup.  The Gators come into this game with a 6-1 record and a 3-1 SEC record. Florida is coming off a 42-28 road loss to LSU.  South Carolina comes into this game with a 3-3 record and 2-2 in SEC play.  The Gamecocks are coming off an impressive double overtime 20-17 victory at Georgia.

Florida quarterback Kyle Trask threw for 310 yds on 23/39 pass attempts, while throwing 3 touchdowns.  Florida was led in receiving by Kyle Pitts.  Pitts had 5 receptions for 108 yds. Van Jefferson added 2 TD’s receiving.  Kyle Trask on the season has thrown for 1,191 yds on 93/136 attempts for 10 TD’s, while throwing 3 picks. Lamical Perine leads the Gators in rushing with 392 yds.  He has totaled 4 scores on the ground. The Gators are led in tackles by David Reese II with 53.

South Carolina quarterback Ryan Hilinski was 15/20 passing for 116 yds and 1 TD in the upset victory over Georgia.  South Carolina was led in receiving by Bryan Edwards with 6 receptions for 78 yds and a touchdown. South Carolina was carried defensively by Israel Mukuamu, he had 3 interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown. On the season Hilinski is 103/164 for 1,028 yds.  He has 6 passing TD’s and 3 picks. The Gamecocks are led in tackles by linebacker Ernest Jones with 50.

The trends in recent years, show that this game should go over the total.  I think Florida gets back on track here and will win a game that goes down to the wire. South Carolina has momentum coming into this game after a big win over Georgia. Florida did give up a lot of points last week.  However, South Carolina is not LSU.   In the end, I think Florida’s defense will stand tall down the stretch in this one.  Final score prediction, Florida wins and the score goes over 27-24.
