So how will this game play out? Will Spurrier get his second win vs UF? I am torn with this game b/c I feel Carolina can win the game but the numbers don't add up. I have read other previews and most say Carolina does not have a chance but something tells me they do. Of course, Carolina needs UF to do all the wrong things from TOs to mental errors. Also it will take divine intervention for SC to get the 'W.' But again something tells me there is a chance.
Take a look at the stats -
UF Offensive Stats
Points Per Game: 35
Yardage Per Game: 438.67 (198 passing, 240.67 rushing)
Turnovers: 13 (9 fumbles, 4 interceptions)
UF Defensive Stats
Points Allowed Per Game: 10.1
Yardage Allowed Per Game: 232.4 (134.4 passing, 98 rushing)
Turnovers Forced: 18 (12 fumbles, 6 interceptions)
USC can not let those stats get to their heads as this game is a classic trap game for UF. Carolina is home, which they have won 7 straight. UF on the road and every road game in the SEC is tough. UF has already wrapped up the SEC crown so will they be overlooking SC? I sure hope so. As I sit in section 301 Saturday, I will be praying for the stars to align.
My prediction is this - Carolina
Will I be right? Or is it more logical to say UF takes care of business and USC just can not hang with the Gators and end up losing 34-17? I have a feeling this will be a better game than most think.
