Semi­noles, Ga­tors to play at noon

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - SPORTS -

TAL­LA­HAS­SEE – Florida State and Florida, both in the midst of their worst sea­sons in re­cent mem­ory, will get an early kick­off for their an­nual col­lege foot­ball ri­valry game this sea­son.

The Ga­tors will host the Semi­noles at noon on Nov. 25 and the game will be broad­cast on ESPN.

Florida State will look to ex­tend its four-game win streak over Florida and aim to win its sev­enth of the past eight con­tests in the se­ries.

For FSU (3-6, 3-5 ACC), the con­test gives Jimbo Fisher’s team a chance to con­tend for bowl el­i­gi­bil­ity with vic­tory.

The Semi­noles will host Delaware State on Satur­day at noon and will fin­ish their sea­son at home against Louisiana Mon­roe on Dec. 2. If FSU wins all three of its re­main­ing games, it will ex­tend the na­tion’s long­est bowl streak to 36 years.

UF (3-6, 3-5 SEC) could spoil FSU’s push to con­tinue its bowl streak. The Ga­tors will host UAB on Satur­day at 4 p.m., hop­ing to snap a five-game los­ing skid this sea­son.

Florida has lost two straight games since in­terim coach Randy Shan­non took over for ousted Jim McEl­wain and the Ga­tors are star­ing at their first los­ing sea­son since go­ing 4-8 in 2013.

FSU is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing its worst sea­son since coach Bobby Bow­den’s first sea­son in 1976, Semi­noles fin­ished 5-6.
