NCAA Football Week 6 Game Preview: Gators vs. Tigers Betting Odds

Gators Host the Tigers at The Swamp

After their convincing 34-3 victory over Tennessee, the Gators are currently 4-0 and looking forward to their match versus the Auburn Tigers on October 5 at home.

You can watch this SEC game on CBS. The kickoff is at 3:30 pm.

This game is particularly interesting because this is going to be the first time that the Gators will be hosting the Tigers at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium since 2007. The last time these two teams met was back in 2011 when the Tigers were able to take Florida down by 17-6 at Auburn.

This time Florida will be the home team, and that gives the Gators lots of hope to defeat a big rival such as the Tigers. What’s interesting is that these two teams are ranking within the NCAA’s Top 10.

On one side, the Tigers were able to secure the seventh place thanks to a convincing 28-20 win over Texas A&M. On the other hand, Florida destroyed the Volunteers by 34-3, allowing the Gators to secure the ninth spot.

Previous Meetings

Now, the very last time these two teams were in the top 10 was in 1997. Back then, at number seven, the Gators were able to defeat the number six Tigers 24-10 at Auburn. The year before that one, number one Florida was also able to take the number 10 Tigers down in a compelling way with a score of 51 to 10. And, in 1995, number three Florida beat number seven Auburn 49-38.

As you can see, the Gators have been the dominant team lately, but before these three Florida mentioned above victories, it was Auburn the one that was able to upset the Gators in back-to-back seasons.

Let’s also not forget the factor that the Tigers lead the all-time series versus the Gators 43-38-2!

Game Prediction

When it comes to predicting the winner of this game, it’s difficult to tell. The Gators, with their latest wins over Auburn, and being the home team, are the clear favorites. But that’s just on paper, as these two teams are very balanced, with both having won their last five games of the season.

Indeed, this October 5 matchup has all the makings of a big SEC clash between two teams with a long-standing rivalry!
