Florida Gators vs. Penn State Nittany Lions Preview

Florida Gators vs. Penn State Nittany Lions
Florida has discovered what life without Tim Tebow is like, and quite frankly, they don’t like it. The Gators struggled to a 7-5 record and could never get on track with Tebow’s replacements. John Brantley didn’t work in the Florida system. His struggles threw a crimp in Florida’s plan to maintain their winning ways.
Penn State’s season was nearly as disappointing. They also finished 7-5, no doubt causing frustration for legendary coach Joe Paterno. Paterno prepares his team as well as any coach, so game-planning for Florida’s strong defense shouldn’t be a huge problem. Translating that to success on the field could be more difficult.
Plus, with this being Urban Meyer's last game, look for a Gator win.
