Saturday night’s Ole Miss vs. Florida college football game gets started at 7 p.m. Eastern Time.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Friday because the 25th-ranked Gators have not disclosed Grier’s illness. The Gators are undefeated in Jim McElwain’s first season in Gainesville.
29 Consecutive Associated Press polls had passed without Florida appearing in the top 25 until this week’s poll, when the Gators returned at No. 25.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Will Grier was sick all right. In that game he had two touchdowns but even more impressively went 5-of-5 on fourth down situations for 143 total yards.
Kelly finished 26 of 40 for 259 yards, with four sacks, two fumbles and an interception. Behind Tradwell they also have a group of big-bodied receivers who are all 6-foot-2 or more, including Cody Core, Quincy Adeboyejo, Markell Pack, Damore’ea Stringfellow, and tight end Evan Engram.
“Our guys took it to them”, McElwain said.
Both Florida and Ole Miss are looking to establish themselves in the SEC East and West, their respective divisions, and matchups between Georgia and Alabama, and Texas A&M and Mississippi State could shakeup the conference further. Ole Miss vs Florida tv channel schedule is on ESPN.
First half: Who had the Gators pitching a first-half shutout against Ole Miss?
The Gators (5-0, 3-0 SEC) opened the scoring with a 36-yard touchdown pass from Grier to wide receiver Demarcus Robinson less than 6 minutes into the game.
This is about as good of a start to the game as Florida could have hoped for.
It’s not that I did not intend to go to the 2008 Ole Miss-Florida game. Developed at the university by Dr. Robert Cade, Gatorade was first consumed as Florida upset the Tigers that day, and forever became a part of college football lore.
The No. 3-ranked Rebels are going for a third-straight win at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium – Florida’s Swamp – but are in the unusual position of being the favored team.
“I’m concerned for everything, that being one of them”, Freeze said.
Here’s another must for the Gators: they’ve got to protect Grier better than they did a week ago, and the defensive front has to put steady heat on quarterback Chad Kelly and bump him out of his comfort zone, which he’s totally immersed in at the moment. After Morrison returned just eight months after suffering a serious knee injury during Florida’s 28-20 win in the Birmingham Bowl on January 3, he has looked a step slow. Ole Miss has gone from being the hunter to the hunted, and this weekend’s game could be another step in the direction the program has been inching towards, or a step back that requires a slight re-calibration in the expectations of the season.
