It was their offense that did the damage in a 78-75 decision in the quarters versus a solid Louisiana Tech squad Wednesday although the defense had a hand in the success as well. Nearly 45% shooting put up enough points but 15 turnovers led to 15 more Bulldogs looks which boosted their 35.6% accuracy.

Florida State will only go as far as their stifling defense will take them which has been far the last few years.

Florida Gators vs. Florida St. Seminoles

The Florida Gators and the Florida State Seminoles look to end their disappointing regular seasons on a high note as they meet in The Swamp on Saturday.  The Seminoles are -2 point favorites over the Gators. It’s never easy to replace someone who had as much success as Urban Meyer had as Head Coach of the Florida Gators but Will Muschamp has his work cut out for him to endear himself to the Florida fans after one of their worst seasons in recent memory. In all fairness Muschamp had to deal with widespread departures from last year’s team and a slew of injuries including one to starting QB John Brantley which left him sidelined for several games.

The Rams started the season covering just one of their first Read More
