2019 Florida Football Season Preview and Predictions

The Florida Gators in 2018 won 10 games while winning a New Year’s Six bowl in Dan Mullen’s first season in charge. Many play-makers on the offensive end return which could lead to an explosive offense led by Mullen. The Gators have the potential to win a lot of games and reach the college football playoffs but their weaknesses could easy derail their hopes.

Felipe Franks WILL throw for over 3000 yards.

Mullen tended get a little trigger happy and looked to constantly hit big plays. Franks has improved a lot since when he first arrived in Gainesville expect him to take another jump and hit on more big plays this season.

CJ Henderson is named a first-team All-American.

Henderson was often times the Gators best player last season; and he will continue his dominance next season and be recognized as one of the best corners in college football.

Kadarius Toney will have over 65 touches.

Toney only had 25 receptions and 21 rushing attempts last year which add up to only 46 touches all season. Toney earned the honor of wearing number one on offense so Mullen trusts him, so his touches will reflect Mullen’s increased trust.

Jonathon Greenard will finish with double digit sacks.

With the losses of Jachai Polite and Cece Jefferson the Gators need a new edge rusher to step up. Greenard had 7 sacks in 2017 for Lousiville, as one of the lead pass rushers for the Gators he gets at least 10 in 2019.

Week 0 vs Miami- Gators win 21-17

In this renewed rivalry emotions run high allowing Miami to stay in the game but in the end the Gators prove too much.

Week 1 Bye

Week 2 vs TN-Martin- Gators win 52-10

This game shouldn’t be competitive as the Gators cruise to an easy win.

Week 3 at Kentucky- Gators win 28-17

Kentucky broke the Gators historic win streak last season but the Gators get revenge, and start up a new winning streak.

Week 4 vs Tennessee- Gators win 35-14

Tennessee has struggled the last few seasons and their struggles continue against this Gators team.

Week 5 vs Towson- Gators win 63-7

The little FCS school from Maryland comes to “The Swamp” and gets completely outclassed.

Week 6 vs Auburn- Tigers win 24-16

The Gators start 5-0 but their weak offensive line can’t handle Auburn’s defensive line as they drop a SEC home game.

Week 7 at LSU- Gators win 24-21

Gators get a bounce-back win at home in another highly competitive game over rivals LSU.

Week 8 at South Carolina- Gators win 33-20

The Gators needed a huge come back to beat South Carolina last season but no such comeback is needed this season.

Week 9 Bye

Week 10 vs Georgia- Bulldogs win 34-20

Georgia has more talent and depth and at this point in the season it proves too much for the Gators to handle.

Week 11 vs Vandy- Gators win 17-14

Pesky Vandy always seems to give Florida problems and that remains true as the Gators barely squeak out a win.

Week 12 at Missouri- Gators win 28-14

Missouri is another team that seems to give Florida fits but Florida’s superior talent helps them pull out a tough road win.

Week 13 Bye

Week 14 vs FSU- Gators win a lot to a little

Gators beat the most irrelevant team in the nation.

    Isn’t LSU an away game or am I missing something?
