The Storylines

• Florida can beat in-state rival Florida State in consecutive seasons for the first time since ripping off a six-game winning streak against the Seminoles from 2004-09. It can also finish with wins over Miami and Florida State for the first time since 2008, when it beat Miami, 26-3, in Gainesville, and topped Florida State, 45-15, in Tallahassee.

• A win Saturday would give Florida a second straight 10-win season for the first time since posting 13 wins in both 2008 -- Dan Mullen’s final year as offensive coordinator -- and 2009.

• A win would also make Mullen the first head coach in Gators history to win 10 games in each of his first two seasons.

• UF can finish undefeated at home for the 14th time since 1990 and the third time since 2010 (7-0 in 2012; 5-0 in 2016).

• Florida was ranked No. 10 in the initial College Football Playoff Rankings, but it has been No. 11 the last three weeks. Last year, UF debuted at No. 11 and finished the regular season at No. 10, earning a Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl berth.

• UF is still in a hunt for a second consecutive “New Year’s Six” bowl berth. The Gators can make consecutive marquee bowl appearances for the first time since 2008 (BCS National Championship Game) and 2009 (Sugar Bowl). Before last season’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl berth, UF made just one marquee bowl game from 2010-17 (2013 Sugar Bowl).

• The Gators have been a top-10 team in 13 of the last 15 Associated Press Top 25 Polls (though their nine-poll streak -- their longest stretch since a run of 12 consecutive top-10 rankings from Week 5 of 2012 (Sept. 30) through the 2013 preseason rankings -- ended Nov. 10). From 2013-17, UF was in the top 10 just five times.

• Florida has a chance to finish in the top 10 of the final Associated Press Top 25 Poll in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2008 (No. 1) and 2009 (No. 3). UF ended last season ranked No. 7 in the final AP Top 25 Poll.
