Florida, sitting at 10-1 SU and 6-5 ATS, is entertaining longshot hopes for a seat at the title game. There are a few different paths that could get them there, including a Notre Dame slip up at USC, or an Alabama loss to Auburn. They at least a have a major BCS Bowl game in their sites if they can get by Florida State. Florida’s only loss on the season was an 8 point road loss at Georgia. They have wins over Texas A&M and LSU, but both of those games were within the first month of the season.
Florida St has to be the most disrespected team in the nation. They are 10-1 SU, but 3-7 ATS for the season, which has probably played into their low ranking at #10. They are a 1 loss team, from a major conference, with their only loss being a 1 point road loss in early October.
Florida St has dominated the past two games against Florida, and currently are a 7 point favorite. The SEC has been living off its legacy a bit this year, which is why 6 slots separate these teams in the rankings. Florida State is the better team, look for their dominance to continue.
