3 Reasons Why Florida Will BLOW OUT South Carolina

There are very few guarantees in the game of football, but when it comes to the #11 Florida Gators' home game against the South Carolina Gamecocks this week, we've found an exception to the rule. Here's 3 Reasons Why Florida Will BLOW OUT South Carolina.

3. Elite D

Florida is near the top of the SEC with averages of 288.8 yards and 14.6 points allowed per game. No matter how much the offense loses the page, the Gators' wealth of talent at all three levels is bound to overwhelm a South Carolina offense that has been crippled by inconsistency and personnel upheaval in 2015.

2. Gamecocks (Lack Of) Defense

Good news for the Gators' running game -- the Gamecocks' rush defense is worst in the SEC with 5.2 yards given up per carry. They've given up a eye-popping 17 rushing touchdowns as well. Add in the fact that they're near the bottom of the conference in total yards allowed per game (428.0) and points allowed per contest (27.3) Florida's offensive struggles against Vandy won't carry over against such a porous D. 

1. Embarrassment

Florida did not play like a College Football Playoff contender last week. The committee noticed, keeping the Gators on the fringes with plenty of contenders to jump for a potential playoff berth. This Gators team has been playing with its ears pinned back all year long, proving the critics wrong with statement performance after statement performance. Beating down a vulnerable South Carolina squad on the road seems like the logical next step as UF attempts to reassert itself as CFP worthy.
