Hollywood & Higdon Bold Game Week Predictions

We missed a week ago but are back. Jason Higdon and Bob Redman go out on a limb to predict the not so ordinary from your Gators for each game. This week it is Football championship Subdivision opponent Furman taking on the Gators and the Florida boys are trying to become bowl eligible with the win. Jason and Bob are thinking big numbers in the game and you can read about it here.

From the desk of Jason Higdon…

Half a century or bust…
The Gators are sitting at 5&5 on the year needed one more win to become bowl eligible and obviously that will take place on Saturday vs. Furman. The season has not unfolded the way the players wanted and they will take it out on the Paladins. The Gators have not hit for 50 points this season and will do so vs. Furman Saturday afternoon to the tune of 58.

JB passes torch to JB…
Expect to see Jacoby Brissett shine in this game as it will be his first time playing against an inferior opponent. He will throw for at least one touchdown pass and add another on the ground while leading the team in passing yards.

Goose eggs are us…
The Florida defense has one shutout on the year back in week two vs. UAB. The Gators will make Furman the second shutout of the season while forcing four turnovers.

From the desk of Bob Redman…

Double or nothing…
I'm thinking Jason didn't go so bold. I am going to give Brissett four touchdowns in this game, minimum. He will throw at least three touchdown passes.

Gilly has his breakout game…
Fans have been yearning for more and more of Mike Gillislee. It appears that he is the lone back on roster that has consistently run between the tackles and done well with it. However, he just hasn't been given much of a chance to shine. Gillislee's Florida career high is 78 yards and on Saturday he breaks that mark going over 100 yards rushing against Furman.

Purple Paladins Will See Red…
As in negative rushing yards… Furman averages a respectable 160 yards on the ground this season. On Saturday, it will be a whole bunch of going backwards as Florida's defense will suffocate Furman and hold them to negative total yards on the ground.
