Florida at No. 11 South Carolina, 7, ESPN2, 620-AM

With the final road trip of the season, Florida (4-5, 3-4 SEC) will try to end a four-game losing streak against a South Carolina team still very much in the SEC East title race and looking to avenge a 33-point loss to the Gators last season. South Carolina (7-2, 5-2), coming off an open week, has won a Division I-A-leading 15 consecutive games at home, its longest win streak since joining the conference and one shy of a school record.

Watch out for … Florida QB Tyler Murphy (top right) didn't practice all week because of shoulder injury and is expected to be a game-time decision. Without him, Florida faces DE Jadeveon Clowney (bottom right) and the SEC's No. 5 passing defense using a redshirt freshman quarterback, Skyler Mornhinweg, who has never played in a collegiate game. Then there's South Carolina's Mike Davis to contend with. The SEC's leading rusher is averaging 117.6 yards per game; the UF defense has given up a combined 487 yards on the ground in their past three games. Florida still has the conference's No. 1 defense, which will be tested against a Gamecocks offense averaging 456 yards per game.

    RHP Erasmo Ramirez is not happy about moving back to the bullpen, and can you blame him? But that's the best move for the Rays now. He can fill several roles: long man, setup man, even closer in a pinch. The Rays need to settle the bullpen, and Ramirez has proven he's capable of doing that.
