Florida State Vs. Florida Game Time, TV Schedule, Spread And More

Florida State's Brandon Jenkins will be looking to give the Seminoles their second straight win over the Gators.

The 6-5 Florida Gators and 7-4 Florida State Seminoles aren't national title contenders, but that doesn't make their Sunshine State rivalry any less heated.

Quarterback John Brantley is coming off a career day in Florida's 54-32 comeback win over Furman, and leads a Gators offense with speedsters Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps in the backfield. Wide receiver Andre Debose hauled in two touchdown passes of more than 60 yards against the Paladins, and could be Brantley's best playmaker in the passing game. Florida's young defense had been strong all year, but was gashed early against Furman, and faces a major challenge in the form of mobile Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel.

Manuel and the Florida State offense have done their fair share of misfiring, producing just 36 points in their last two games, against Miami and Virginia, at home. The Seminoles may have to rely on their stout defense against Florida. Defensive ends Brandon Jenkins and Bjoern Werner both pose threats to the fairly statuesque Brantley, and could have a field day against a Florida offensive line that has struggled all year. Defensive backs Lamarcus Joyner and Greg Reid may be able to shut down Florida's ineffective receiving corps, too.
