Miami goes up early 3-0. Final score Gators 31-10.
These early season games are so unpredictable, so I will go with 36-10, Gators. The Tropical Depressions will struggle on offense through most of the game, but they might have a good first half on defense. The Gators will have spurts of great offense and defense mixed in with periods of frustration.
After analyzing, I will go 31-10 Gators. I like the overall matchups.
I don't feel awesome about this game. At all. Wish I did. Just too much heartbreak from those bastards through the years.
I also think that we collectively tend to brush over our weaknesses. Our OL is very much an unknown and could be a significant liability. Pre-season reports are all we have to believe that our inexperienced OL (22 total starts) will somehow be cohesive against a strong U front. I fear a lot of pressure up the middle rattling FF into turnovers and giving momentum to the bad guys.
I want to believe - but I see this as an early season, could go any way, type of match up.
With that, I'll say: 24-20 good guys. I want to see mettle.
44-6. The Gators.
27-13.. I could see some sloppy play for a half, then the running game gets going in the 3rd. 4th quarter opens up PA for a couple big plays to extend the lead. Would very much enjoy Davis and Perine having their way with Miami's defense late.
This is the craziest prediction of the entire thread, bazza.
First, your prediction for the gators score surpasses that if the combined over/under from Vegas. Second, you think Miami will score 34? They scored that much against power 5 teams twice last year, with both needing defensive turnovers to do it. I would actually be a bit worried if that ends up the score.
right? likewise for those of us predicting 6 TD wins.
41-17 good guys
34 - 10 Gators
Two 2* star FRESHMAN tackles STARTING on their O-line? No way they should score more than 13 points...
but the gators, with 4 new starting OL will score 46 vs their defense? hmmm
and the other tackle is a 4* RS freshman fyi
Gators 24 - Canes 10
Our guys are new to starting and theirs are new to college
Did you see how much ACC teams scored on them last year? Take a look at that vaunted defense...
