Florida Gators Football Schedule Analysis: Not only does Florida get it’s annual date with LSU from the West, and not only does it get that game on the road, but it also gets … Alabama. At least the date against the Tide is in Gainesville. It doesn’t stop there.
As always, there’s the game against Georgia, but on a game-by-game basis the rest of the slate isn’t all that bad. However, after playing Vanderbilt on October 9th, the Gators have a grand total of one home game – Samford – before finishing up with Florida State on November 27th.
Best Case Scenario: 11-1. The bar is set higher now, and there’s a chance LSU isn’t back to being the killer it was in 2019 – not that last year’s version wasn’t good enough for the Gators – so maybe there’s a chance to rip through this slate. Beat LSU, split the dates with Georgia and Alabama, and don’t have any brain cramps. Or …
Worst Case Scenario: 8-4. The Gators brain cramp again. They drop a date to a Missouri and/or Kentucky on the road, and/or do the unthinkable and lose to Tennessee at home, and lose at least two of the three games against Alabama, Georgia and LSU.
