The Gators went down tonight.
Florida, one of the favorites to win the national title this year, suffered a fairly-surprising loss a couple of days ago, at home to Florida State.
Tonight, the Gators lost again, and this time it’s a shocker.
No. 5 Florida was beat at home by Loyola-Chicago, 65-59.
GATORS GET CHOMPED again!
