Florida has a pedestrian at best offense. Alabama has one of college football’s best ever defenses. So, of course, the Gators drove 64 yards for a touchdown on their first drive.
Alabama had gone four entire games without conceding a touchdown. Their last touchdown allowed came against Texas A&M on Oct. 23. The Tide still probably win. Though, this touchdown may concern folks who took Alabama (-24).
Events were truer to form on the next Florida drive. The Gators threw an interception for a long return that set up the Crimson Tide deep in Gator territory.
