The Sunshine Showdown has lost its sizzle over the years as both teams are vying to regain national relevancy. But as usual, 2019’s edition of Florida-Florida State has bragging rights up for grabs.
Some argue the 11th-ranked Gators are the best two-loss team in the nation. Florida’s losses came against two teams ranked in the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings – No. 2 LSU and No. 4 Georgia. Both losses were competitive contests in which Florida had a chance to come away victorious.
Now, the Gators look to finish off the regular season with a 10th win and more importantly, a victory over their rival. Doing so would complete a very successful and impressive regular season.
The Seminoles are already bowl eligible, so there isn’t added pressure to win Saturday’s game. But Florida State would be well-served to make Saturday’s game competitive to finish out what has been a tough season in Tallahassee.
Check out the details for Saturday’s game below:
Game Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
