Florida vs. Missouri: 25 predictions that are really total guesses

Kevin C. Cox

What's going to happen in Florida's game against Missouri? Let's take 25 shots in the dark.

Let me say this up front: I have no feel for this Florida-Missouri game.

  1. Florida will give up points in the first quarter.
  2. Florida's first score will be a touchdown, not a field goal.
  3. Tyler Murphy will attempt at least 22 passes.
  4. Murphy will account for at least one touchdown.
  5. Florida will have at least one pass play of more than 30 yards.
  6. Mack Brown will lead Florida in rushing attempts.
  7. Florida's running game will tally more than 140 yards.
  8. At least four Florida wide receivers will make catches.
  9. Quinton Dunbar will finally have a receiving touchdown.
  10. Florida's offense will score at least two touchdowns.
  11. Michael Taylor will lead Florida in solo tackles.
  12. Jay-nard Bostwick will play.
  13. Florida's defense will give up at least one passing touchdown.
  14. Loucheiz Purifoy, Marcus Roberson, and Vernon Hargreaves III will all start.
  15. Maty Mauk will throw at least one interception.
  16. Florida's defense will allow less than 5.5 yards per play. (Missouri averages 6.8.)
  17. Florida will start at least one drive in Missouri territory.
  18. Missouri will run for under 200 yards. (Been held under it twice this year.)
  19. Florida will make a big play on special teams.
  20. Johnny Townsend will be a pleasant surprise as Florida's punter.
  21. Francisco Velez will not miss a field goal.
  22. The game will be within a touchdown at some point in the second half.
  23. Florida will score at least 24 points.
  24. Missouri will become the first SEC team to score 20 points on Florida's defense since Tennessee in 2012.
  25. Florida will win.

Last Week: 9-of-25, 36 percent.
