      Florida, coming off a loss to Vanderbilt, takes to the road to face No. 16 Florida State Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in a game being shown on ABC.

      Follow along in the game day thread as Rafael de la Santos, Cam Parker, Zack Weiss, Chris Will, and myself post updates and observations.

      A storyline to watch today (and something that Steve Russell talked about on his show this week) is the poor kicking by both teams.

      Adam Mihalek (Fla.): 12/18 FG (4/5 20-29, 4/5 30-39, 1/3 40-49, 3/5 50+), 37/38 XP
      Ryan Fitzgerald (FSU): 9/15 FG (4/5 20-29, 2/4 30-39, 3/4 40-49, 0/2 50+) 48/49 XP

      If this one does shape up to be a close one, it may come down to the kickers.

      Both teams have left the field, approaching 25 minutes to go until kickoff. Seminoles now doing Senior Day festivities.

      An observation: Pearsall looked smooth in warmups despite battling an injury. With Henderson and Shorter out, he’ll be crucial tonight.

      Absolutely beautiful double-duo by Burney and APR.

      Burney with the TFL to bring up third down.

      WOW. FSU picks up a massive first down, Shemar James forces a fumble and it’s Gator ball.

      This team has turned a corner when it comes to taking the ball away.

      Might be reviewed, but it looks out

      Turnover on downs.

      RICKY PEARSALL HELLO ENDZONE.

      Back-to-back nice plays by Marshall. Fought off the block like a linebacker and it’s a TFL

      Trey Dean III drops what would have been a massive return on the INT.

      Either way, it’s a turnover on downs and Gators will take over.

      Dean was headed to the endzone with that. As we saw last week against Vanderbilt, you have to have those ‘gimme’ type plays in close games.

      This is why I am not sure Richardson ever reaches his potential. Running must be a big part of his game for him to excel but he gets dinged up sk often when he runs.

      Richardson is out of the injury warming up without a ball. Checking his mobility

      AR is going to be eager to get back in, even if in pain.

      Jonathan Odom TD!

      His second score in three weeks (2nd in his career).

      Pearsall was open in the endzone, but an easy dumpoff to the TE results in six.

      Taking what the defense gives him. Great read by Richardson

      Florida’s up 21-14. The good news is it shows what the team is capable of when they come out fired up and ready to play. The bad news is it only amplifies how poorly they were prepared and how flat they came out in the Vanderbilt loss.

      No rhyme or rhythm to the playcalling. Is it because Richardson can’t complete even the simplest of passes or is the playcalling doesn’t give him a chance. Things that were there in the first half won’t be there in the second half. That is what halftime adjustments are for.
