3 Things To Watch During Miami vs Florida Game

Battle of the sunshine state , the talent in this game is incredible. Stephen Morris, playmaker Duke Johnson, and other talent on the Miami sideline. Ronald Powell, Dominique Easley, Dante Fowler leading up front for Florida’s defensive front. With Florida being a talent rich state recruiting battles bring rivalries, Tracy Howard,Andre Dubose are some recent recruiting battles and with UF going down into Miami and getting 305 talent as Ermon Lane, Dalvin Cook, Khairi Clark, Davante Phillips there will be smack talk not only between the players but the recruits also.


Matt Jones has been out for most of Florida’s camp and sat out the Toledo game with a viral infection. His power running style is one that ones should fear. Questions remain if Florida will ease Jones back on to the field with Mack Brown establishing himself as a capable back for Florida. Expect for Jones to be effective when playing. If Miami run defense isn’t up for the task they’ll be in for a long day on ESPN.

Miami Offensive Line vs Florida Defensive Line

Seantrel Henderson is arguably the best offensive tackle in the country. Going against Dante Fowler, Ronald Powell, Jon Bullard it will be a battle all game with the talented depth of the Gators front 7 should be must see tv. Opposite side with Florida adding more depth this offseason with transfers Tyler Moore (Nebraska) & Max Garcia (Maryland) will help the Gators this year. Miami defensive line is filled with disrupters and playmakers much like there offense. No real advantage on either side here.

Stephen Morris Against Florida’s Defensive Backs

Florida has 2 projected 1st round corners in Marcus Roberson & Louchiez Purifoy and experienced DBs in Jaylen Watkins & Cody Riggs. Stephen Morris being a Senior and was highly touted at the Manning Passing Academy should be challenged all game long against Florida’s big and experienced corners. To have a big matchup as I expect it to be , Morris will have to trust his WR and not lean on Duke Johnson all game.

Prediction for game : Florida has a challenge with Duke Johnson and Stephen Morris but I think Florida defense wont let many big plays happen against them.

Score : Florida 31 - Miami 24
