Teams: UCF (8–4) versus Florida (6–6)

Line: Florida -7.5

Summary

Talent screams Florida, everything else screams UCF.

Florida clearly has the edge with their roster, but struggled this season to put all those solid recruits to good use. The Gators could already be looking ahead to 2022.

Plus... You know Gus Malzahn is going to get his guys pumped to play against Florida.

Put a pin in this one: UCF's late-season run came against some pretty mediocre competition. Florida has what it takes to win an ugly intra-state battle.

Our Pick

Take the Gators here. We wouldn't recommend watching this one, but it should be Florida easily.

Hype aside on the UCF side, Florida has more talent up and down their roster to take care of the Knights.

The Score: Florida wins, 31-13
