The Commodores as well as the Gators had very high expectations this season but neither of them have been able to find their way, Vanderbilt came off one of the biggest upsets of the season when they beat #5 Georgia at home only to turn around and get handed one by Texas A&M
Both of these programs understand that both actually still have a chance at a decent bowl game so all is not lost. The Florida Gators have had problems all over the place; currently ridding a three game losing streak the gators are looking for anything to really boost them out of despair.
Vanderbilt has not looked too bad at .500 but they have been horrible in conference play, something that this game represents to the fullest. The Commodores must get more active on the defensive side of the ball; they need to get a few turnovers to help the offense who will have an even harder time trying to get through a smothering Gators defense that still has more holes then hippies pants at lollapalooza.
The Gators must react in this game, they need to feed of one another and really focus on getting things back on track. They should win this game and with a complicated set of games remaining they need to take advantage of their sub .500 games remaining. I expect the Gators to really show them what a passing game is, moving the ball all over the field then when the defense is tired; I see the, turning to their passing one.
What to expect:
Expect a game that will really show two teams that are struggling in their seasons battle it out, make the most of what they have going on. The Gators are -10.5 in this one and I think it will be a closer one till late in the fourth when I see Florida pulling away on a few big plays from their defense.
