TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Christian Ponder will close out his
Florida State home career by trying to stop a six-game losing
streak to rival Florida.
Ponder goes into Saturday's game against the Gators with a 20-12
record as the Seminoles' starting quarterback. He ousted three-year
incumbent Drew Weatherford from the job in 2008.
Neither Ponder nor Weatherford, who finished his career 20-13 as
a starter, have engineered a win over the Gators.
Ponder and the 22nd-ranked Seminoles (8-3, 6-2 ACC) are 2½-point
favorites Saturday - a four-touchdown reversal from last year, when
they went to Gainesville a 24½ point underdog and came home a
27-point loser. The Gators (7-4, 4-4 SEC) are unranked.
