What to Know
The Florida Gators and the Missouri Tigers are set to square off in a SEC East battle at 7:30 p.m. ET on November 18th at Memorial Stadium at Faurot Field. Florida is limping into the match on a three-game losing streak.
Last Saturday, Florida lost to LSU on the road by a decisive 52-35 margin. The defeat unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for Florida in their matchups with LSU: they’ve now lost five in a row.
The losing side was boosted by Trevor Etienne, who rushed for 99 yards and three touchdowns. The team also got some help courtesy of Graham Mertz, who threw for 311 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, Missouri put the finishing touches on their third blowout victory of the season on Saturday. They blew past Tennessee, posting a 36-7 win at home.
Brady Cook and Cody Schrader were among the main playmakers for Missouri as the former threw for 275 yards and a touchdown while completing 75% of his passes and the latter gained 321 total yards and a touchdown. Schrader is on a roll when it comes to rushing yards, as he’s now rushed for 100 or more in the last three games he’s played. Harrison Mevis did his part by putting the ‘special’ in special teams, booting in three field goals and three extra points.
LSU’s win bumped their season record to 7-3 while Florida’s loss dropped theirs to 5-5.
Florida will be fighting an uphill battle on Saturday as the experts have pegged them as the 11.5-point underdog. Currently 7-3 against the spread, Missouri has been a solid investment this season; on the other hand, Florida is only 3-7 ATS.
Florida beat Missouri 24-17 when the teams last played back in October of 2022. One of the biggest obstacles the team faced in that game was Missouri’s Nathaniel Peat, who rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown.
