College football preview: Florida vs. Georgia Southern, 2 Saturday, 620-AM

Florida vs. Georgia Southern, 2, 620-AM

The Gators (4-6) are on a five-game losing streak, and of their final two games, this is their best opportunity to end the skid. But that's not to imply that a victory is assured. The Eagles (6-4) average 34.2 points a game and 453.7 yards of offense, and they have won three of their past four games. One of the questions surrounding this game: How many fans will show up at the Swamp? "We're at the point where we're in desperate need of a win to kind of bring the team spirit back up," OL Trenton Brown said.

Watch out for … Georgia Southern's triple-option offense is so complex that Florida coach Will Muschamp and his staff did extensive video study of it in the offseason and have talked all week about the need to play assignment-sound defense. The Gators most likely will start QB Skyler Mornhinweg for the second consecutive week as Tyler Murphy continues to recover from his shoulder injuries.
