Missouri, meanwhile, will look to ride the momentum of its first SEC win against Kentucky. The Tigers scored 16 points and held the Wildcats scoreless to move to 4-4 overall this season.
Unusually, Saturday will mark the third time this season that Missouri plays a seventh-ranked opponent, with the first two matchups resulting in losses to the Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks. The Gators fell to No. 7 in the latest BCS Standings after suffering a 17-9 loss to Georgia at home with an anemic offensive performance.
Quarterback Jeff Driskel will look to cut down on turnovers and lead Flordia against a Tigers defense that ranks 46th in the FBS with 23.6 points against per game.
The SEC tilt will kick-off at at noon on ESPN2 with the Gators as heavy 16.5-point favorites.
