Florida Gators a 43-point favorite against FIU but Urban Meyer giving Golden Panthers respect

GAINESVILLE -- The No.1 Florida Gators (10-0) are an amazing 43-point favorite against FIU for this Saturday's game. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m.

Florida coach Urban Meyer, who began breaking down film of FIU (3-7) on Sunday, said on Monday that the Golden Panthers are a quality opponent with talented personnel.

"There is no question FIU will be a bowl team sooner than you think," Meyer said. "There are quality athletes; they are very well coached. I just got done watching last night and today both sides of the ball and we're going to attack this thing to go to 11-0.

"This is not a smaller Division I team. This is a very good team that will be in a bowl game within two years. That's our opinion, because they have very good personnel and they throw it around. The won last week and they have a lot of ability."
