Can’t believe the season is halfway over, yet here we are and my Florida Gators have a decent 4-2 record. Last night, the Florida Gators really needed the win against Vanderbilt after a dismal performance against Kentucky last week in a disappointing 33-14 loss.
Florida QB Mertz was not spectacular, but he did get the job done. He threw for 254 yards with three touchdowns, with one to Ricky Pearsall, of course. WR Boardingham got into the endzone twice and ended up with 99 yards receiving. RB Montrell Johnson Jr. was able to run for 135 with one touchdown.
Overall, a pretty good showing by the Florida Gators, but they still need to tweak some things before heading into the final stretch.
Florida’s final six games are going to be very tough as the Gators still have to face a strong Georgia team, LSU, and Arkansas. Not to mention their final game against rival FSU, which are very good this year.
The Gamecocks, Razorbacks, and Missouri should all be wins with the Gators finishing the season 7-5.
Up next is South Carolina at Williams-Brice, so this will be a test to see if the Gators have adjusted enough to make it competitive for the second half of the season.
Regardless, though, the Gators are currently 4-2 and ranked third in the SEC East Division, so I’ll take it!
