Can Florida Rebound?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

A game of this caliber could not have come at a better time for the Gators.

Florida is reeling. Starting quarterback Tyler Murphy is questionable for the contest against the Eagles, which means redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg may be forced into action once more.

The third quarterback on the depth chart coming into the season, Mornhinweg was thrown to the wolves—err, Gamecocks—last week and did well for himself on 10-of-13 passing for 107 yards and an interception.

Much more will be expected of Mornhinweg against inferior competition.

Over the course of Florida's losing streak, the offense has failed to post more than 20 points. Conversely, the defense has surrendered that or more in three of five despite a favorable No. 14 overall rank in scoring defense.

Saturday is a chance to break several negative trends and save the season.

The Eagles are in the midst of a great season, but they have played just two games against opposition outside of the Southern Conference—Savannah State of the MEAC and St. Francis of the NEC.

Georgia Southern is getting paid a cool $550,000 to make the trip to Gainesville and take a beating per ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

The talent disparity is simply too much. Florida needs to do two things in this matchup—stay healthy and get things back on track.

Jameis Winston and the Seminoles await.

 

Final Score: Gators 36, Eagles 6
