The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Florida Football Friday: Florida Caps SEC Play at Mizzou

Florida Football Friday: Florida Caps SEC Play at Mizzou

No. 11 Florida wraps up SEC play at Missouri on Saturday
Publish Date: 11/15/2019

After its largest margin of victory in SEC play in more than two decades last weekend, No. 11 Florida will head to Columbia to take on a pretty good Missouri team on Saturday.

The Gators, at 8-2, are coming off a 56-0 home victory over Vanderbilt as they get ready for their final SEC contest of the year. Since a 5-1 start, Missouri has lost three straight contests, including 27-0 last week to Georgia.

Although he was not the opening day starter, Florida junior Kyle Trask has enjoyed a solid season with 22 total touchdowns compared to just six interceptions. Trask ranks behind only a pair of Heisman Trophy contenders in Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and LSU’s Joe Burrow when it comes to passer rating in the SEC.

Florida is averaging more than 33 points per game and has a nice group of skill players. Senior running back Lamical Perine is the workhorse for Florida with a team-leading 504 yards rushing. Tight end Kyle Pitts and receiver Freddie Swain lead a deep corps of pass catches. Both have five touchdown grabs on the year while Pitts leads the team with 530 yards receiving.

Defensively, Missouri and Florida rank second and third in the SEC, respectively, behind only Georgia. The Gators allow just 15 points per game while the Tigers give up just over 19 points per contest. Missouri doesn’t generate a lot of pressure, but still yields the fewest passing yards per contest in the SEC. Junior Kobie Whiteside leads the team with five sacks. Linebacker Nick Bolton leads the SEC with 82 total tackles while in the secondary, Cale Garrett has a team-high three interceptions.

Up front for Florida, Jonathan Greenard and Jabari Zuniga do an outstanding job of setting the edge for a team that leads the SEC and ranks fifth nationally with 35 sacks. Senior linebacker David Reese is very good and leads the team with 77 total tackles. Cornerback C.J. Henderson is one of the nation’s best, but it’s Donovan Stiner who is tied for the SEC lead with four interceptions.

After missing last week’s loss to Georgia, quarterback Kelly Bryant is expected to be back under center this week for Missouri. The Clemson transfer has passed for nearly 1,900 yards and owns 15 total touchdowns to just five interceptions this season. Junior and leading rusher Larry Rountree III is questionable for Saturday and leads the team with 668 yards rushing and eight touchdowns. Jonathan Nance is the top receiver for Missouri while Tyler Badie is one of the SEC’s most versatile running backs.

The Tigers went into Gainesville last season and stunned Florida, 38-17. Missouri holds a 5-3 edge all-time over Florida and has won two straight in the series. Saturday’s contest in Columbia will begin at noon ET and air on CBS.

Prediction: Florida 24, Missouri 13

Sunday, Nov. 17 at 1 p.m. ET (CBS)

New Orleans Saints (7-2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-6)
Sunday, Nov. 17 at 1 p.m. ET (FOX)

Prediction: New Orleans 33, Tampa Bay 24
