Florida Gators vs Virginia Cavaliers 12/30/2019 – The Florida Gators meet the Virginia Cavaliers in an Orange Bowl showdown this Monday at the Hard Rock Stadium. College football odd spreads favor the Gators to come out on top, a clash that some see as a mismatch. The Cavaliers have their work cut out for them, facing a top-10 team in Florida. Virginia got the Orange Bowl invite because Clemson earned a spot in the College Football Playoff. Despite the odds, the Cavaliers are not expected to hand the Gators a win easily.
Florida Gators vs Virginia Cavaliers 12/30/2019
The Florida Gators have little reason to lose this one against the Virginia Cavaliers. They only have two losses to show this season and ended their season with a three-game win streak. Quarterback Kyle Trask will spearhead their offense once more, a big improvement from Feleipe Franks. In 11 games, Trask has thrown for 2,636 yards and 24 touchdowns with just six interceptions. He also has a good supporting cast in Kyle Pitts and Van Jefferson. Defensively, the Gators will turn to Jonathan Greenard to make stops. He leads the SEC in sacks (8.5) and tackles for a loss (14.5).
Players to watch: K. Trask QB (213 CMP 315 ATT 2636 YDS 67.6 CMP% 8.4 AVG 66 LNG 24 TD 6 INT 21 SACK -157 SYL 159.2 RTG), L. Perine RB (119 ATT 538 YDS 4.5 AVG 88 LNG 4 TD), D. Pierce RB (48 ATT 271 YDS 5.6 AVG 75 LNG 4 TD), K. Pitts TE (51 REC 610 YDS 12 AVG 32 LNG 5 TD), V. Jefferson WR (43 REC 528 YDS 12.3 AVG 69 LNG 6 TD).
For a team which critics never gave a chance, the Virginia Cavaliers already overshot their mark. Though heavy underdogs, the Cavaliers will try to extend its run. Quarterback Bryce Perkins will lead the offensive, the ACC leader in total offense with 304.6 yards per game. He has thrown for 3,215 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions, to go along with 745 yards and another 11 scores on the ground. Defensively, Virginia is performing decently. They will try to check Kyle Trask or at least make life miserable for him this Monday.
