FSU vs. Florida: TV Info, Spread, Injury Updates, Game Time and More

The 2013 rivalry game with No. 2 Florida State (11-0) on Saturday in Gainesville will serve as a painful reminder to Florida of just how wrong this season has gone.

The Seminoles will enter this game just two wins away from an almost guaranteed shot at playing for the national title. Those kinds of stakes are nothing new for this game. 

Florida doesn't have quite as much to play for. The Gators are 4-7 on the season and have lost six straight. Last week, they lost to FCS school Georgia Southern. 

Georgia Southern only attempted three passes in that game and didn't complete a single one. 

Meanwhile, the Seminoles continue to look like complete juggernauts.

Last week, the Seminoles faced a vastly overmatched Idaho team, but the fact they put up 80 points is still an impressive example of this team's explosiveness. 

The Seminoles have had an easy schedule lately, but in their last three, they have outscored opponents 198-20. There is little reason to think Florida can reverse this trend of domination. 

When: Saturday, Nov. 30 at 12 p.m. ET

Where: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville, Fla. 

TV Coverage: ESPN

Spread: FSU -27 according to VegasInsider.com

This isn't likely.

The Seminoles' average score per game this year is 55.2-11.4. Boston College finished by the closest deficit, which was 14. 

If this was another year, when Florida was not terrible, this would be a better question. However, this year, Florida is terrible. 

Will Florida State cover?

The defense is solid and 16th in the nation in points allowed, but this team has lost six in a row and even the defense has been suffering. 

Georgia Southern scored 26 last week and Missouri and Vanderbilt scored at least 34 during the Gators' current losing streak. 

Meanwhile, the offense is averaging just 6.8 yards per pass and 3.6 yards per rush. Nothing is going right for the Gators. 

Prediction: Florida State 42, Florida 6

I don't see any reason to think Florida will keep this game close. The offense is going to find no success against a defense that is second in the nation in points allowed. This will put far too much pressure on the defense, and the Seminoles will wear them down and blow them out.
