The most intriguing aspect of this matchup is that Steve Spurrier is returning to his old stomping ground. His South Carolina team is coming off a close loss to LSU. You might think since Florida beat LSU, that Florida would have the edge over South Carolina, but that’s not how it works. South Carolina played their LSU game on the road; Florida played theirs at home. There’s a major difference. Prior to that Florida/LSU game, Florida had historically done very poorly against ranked opponents at home. It’s not likely they have reversed that trend so fast. It’s also not likely that South Carolina will lose two games in a row. South Carolina has won the last two meetings, but Florida has won seven of its last 8 games at home against South Carolina.
Oddsmakers currently has Florida as 3½-point favorite, with the total at 41.
