GAINESVILLE -- We're moments away from a windy (and chilly) Senior Day kickoff in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The Gators hope to avoid losing three straight games at home for the first time since 1986. The Gators are nearly four touchdown underdogs, but they insist they can still upset the No. 2 Seminoles.
It's a late arriving crowd (again), as the student section isn't even halfway filled.
Much of the morning has been dominated by Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley's impromptu press conference, where he reiterated his unwavering support for embattled coach Will Muschamp.
I'll have more on Foley's message later.
PREGAME NEWS AND NOTES
* Redshirt freshman quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg will make his third straight start.
* Florida won the toss and opted to RECEIVE
* The Gators honored 15 seniors in a short ceremony
Scoreboard: 44-24-2 ATS, 6-5 selecting Florida games
Florida (+27.5) vs. Florida State. Because why not. The Gators won't pull off the upset but I can see this being an ugly, slow game.
Stay warm and enjoy the weekend, everybody.
