Can Florida keep its roll going against the Gamecocks?

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

My 25 predictions for Florida's attempt to take back The Swamp against South Carolina (noon, SEC Network or WatchESPN)...

  1. Treon Harris will throw more than 20 passes.
  2. Harris will account for more than 250 yards of total offense.
  3. Matt Jones will lead Florida in rushing yards.
  4. Jones will also lead Florida in yards per carry.
  5. Florida wide receivers will combine for at least 10 receptions.
  6. Only one Florida wide receiver will catch a touchdown pass.
  7. Harris will have more than 200 passing yards.
  8. Florida will have at least three touchdown drives.
  9. Florida's offense will average more than 5.0 yards per play.
  10. Florida will not score first.
  11. Florida will score in the first quarter.
  12. Florida's defense will allow fewer than 4.4 yards per play.
  13. Florida will give up at least three plays of more than 30 yards.
  14. Florida will not force a fumble.
  15. Florida will have at least one interception.
  16. Dante Fowler, Jr. will record a sack.
  17. Jarrad Davis will make a big play.
  18. Duke Dawson will not make a big play.
  19. Dylan Thompson will complete at least 50 percent of his passes.
  20. Mike Davis will not run for 100 yards.
  21. Florida will make a field goal.
  22. Andre Debose will make a big play ... on offense.
  23. Kyle Christy will average better than 45 yards per punt.
  24. Florida will never trail by more than seven points.
  25. Florida will win, 31-24.
  26. And Florida will have taken back The Swamp by doing so.

Star-divide

I just want this game to be over with, really. It brings me only minimal pleasure to see Florida beat Steve Spurrier.

But I think, behind a solid ground game and an improving Treon Harris at quarterback and a defense rarin' to prove that it can shut down Spurrier's offense, that's what we're going to see today.

Go Gators.
