Looking to rebound from its first loss of the season, # 8 Florida (7-1, 6-1 SEC) welcomes Mizzou (4-4, 1-4 SEC) to the Swamp Saturday at 11 a.m. (ESPN2) for the Tigers first visit to Gainesville. Saturday’s game will be just the second meeting between the two schools, the only previous meeting came in the 1966 Sugar Bowl, when the Tigers held on to beat the Gators, 20-18.
UF is coming off of a 17-9 loss to #12 Georgia last Saturday in Jacksonville in which the Gators turned the ball over a season-high six times, but still had a chance to tie the game late in regulation. The Gators still remain alive in the race for the SEC East title, however, the road got more difficult after Saturday’s loss. Florida would need a win over Missouri to close out SEC play and have Georgia lose one of its final two league games, either at home vs. Ole Miss on Saturday or at Auburn the following week.
As defensive coordinator at Texas, Gator Head Coach Will Muschamp is 2-0 against Missouri. In 2008, the Longhorns beat Mizzou, 56-31, and in 2009, Texas won 41-7 over the Tigers at Homecoming. In the two games, Muschamp’s defenses limited Missouri to 52.0 rushing yards per game and 208.5 passing yards per game and forced three total turnovers.
