The Florida Gators’ Form to face Virginia
The Gators finished the season with three wins in a row, including the destruction of Florida State by a 40-7 record in their last outing.
Florida had a 10-2 record in 2019, with the two losses coming against the two teams that happened to be in the SEC championship game. First against LSU and then against Georgia.
Mullen Brought a New Identity To The Team
While the Gators are not a College Football Playoffs ready program, they did take a step forward in 2019. Dan Mullen’s second season brought an identity to a team in much need of one.
Florida had the 17th best passing offense in the nation, averaging 300.4 passing yards. That helped the team average 33.0 points per game. Their defense didn’t hold back either, allowing 14.4 PPG.
The Virginia Cavaliers’ Form to face Florida
The Cavaliers 9-4 record is definitely an overachieving mark for Virginia. The program is getting more and more respect in the ACC.
Just by reaching the ACC Championship game, it was more than the Virginia fans were hoping for. The 62-17 loss to Clemson in the championship game is hard to swallow, but it does make total sense.
Florida shouldn’t be that overwhelming. But can they hang on and cover the 14 points?
Defense Is An Issue
Virginia averaged 32.4 points per game, and they were able to move the ball fairly well all season.
Their defense, however, is an issue, allowing 26.5 points per game. Of course, that number inflated by the gigantic loss where they allowed 62 points to Clemson.
Florida vs. Virginia Orange Bowl Prediction
Dan Mullen has brought back Florida’s mojo, but he’s not finished. Last season he took advantage of their bowl game against Michigan to send a huge message to the rest of the SEC.
Mullen might want to put a fantastic show and get another bowl win with a solid performance against Virginia. Bet Florida -14.5.
