The statue that used to read “UNCONQUERED” was altered to say “Easily CONQUERED” before the Florida Gator – Florida State Seminole matchup. Will Muschamp goes up against an old friend and now foe Jimbo Fisher. The FSU Seminoles are a touchdown favorite at home and look to go on a 3 game win streak. The number 4 ranked Florida Gators hope to beat FSU and possibly have a berth in the BCS National Championship game. After FSU’s loss to NC State, their national title hopes have pretty much been crushed. Throw out the records on this game. It will be an all out rivalry. Quarterback Jeff Driskel is expected to play despite an ankle injury. If he is not ready, Jacoby Brissett is expected to play. This is the only game in college football in which there is a state law that requires the game to be played this weekend. It should be a good one. HT @ecuamerican

Three keys for a Florida victory vs. FSU

Florida at Florida State: Saturday at 3:30 p.m. TV: ABC GAINESVILLE, Fla. The Florida-Florida State game has an old-school feel to it this year for the first time in a long time. Steve Spurrier and Bobby Bowden would approve. For the first time in 12 years, both the Gators and Seminoles are ranked in the top 10 for their annual showdown. When this rivalry was college football...

'Noles, Gators feature 2 of nation's top defenses

Points could be difficult to come by when sixth-ranked Florida visits No. 10 Florida State. The Seminoles (10-1, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) lead the nation in total defense and rank among the top five in four other defensive categories while Florida (10-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) isn't far behind, going into Saturday's game ranked fourth nationally in total defense...

No. 10 FSU seeking respect vs. No. 6 Florida

Florida State would like nothing better than to win some respect at the hands of archrival Florida. While both teams have one loss, the Gators are No. 6 weekly while the Seminoles are four spots below at No. 10. The difference, apparently, is the teams they've played. The Gators, whose lone loss is to No. 3 Georgia, will be hunting for their third win this season over a top...

Florida Gators Vs. Florida State Seminoles; The Rivalry Is Back Where It Belongs

I should clarify that before fans from both sides scream foul. When the Florida Gators face the Florida State Seminoles, the rivalry that comes along with it is always present. It wouldn’t matter if these teams had losing records...
