GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - There are no national championship
implications. There are no Heisman Trophy candidates. There are no
fired or soon-to-be-retired coaches on either sideline.
Without question, the Florida-Florida State series has less
intrigue and fewer story lines than it's had in recent years.
The four-loss Gators don't have Tim Tebow and are far removed
from championship contention. The three-loss Seminoles are still in
the Atlantic Coast Conference title hunt, but have no control over
their fate. So what does Saturday's game in Tallahassee mean?
The Gators have a chance to extend their winning streak in the
storied rivalry and tighten their stranglehold on the Sunshine
State. The No. 22 Seminoles can give first-year coach Jimbo Fisher
a signature win.
