Golden Panthers: Florida's New Gold Standard?

Yes, the Florida Gators would pummel FIU, and the Florida St. Seminoles would at least slip past with a win. But if we're going strictly by resumes, there's an argument to be made that Mario Cristobal's squad has done the best job of any Sunshine State team.

it gives me great pleasure to declare FIU the state's best football team at the season's midway point. The Golden Panthers have a solid win against UCF, boast the state's best player (T.Y. Hilton) and have just as many victories (one) against teams from automatic qualifying conferences as anyone else in the state.

(Note: Florida has two victories against AQers, but the Gators have been removed from the conversation until their offense can actually move the ball past midfield.)
