Week 3 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the South Florida Bulls and No. 18 Florida Gators. South Florida is riding high entering this matchup after taking down Howard by a score of 42-20 last weekend. The Bulls scored a whopping 6 touchdowns on the ground.
Meanwhile, Florida is looking to make a statement after suffering a heartbreaking 26-16 loss to Kentucky. Quarterback Anthony Richardson struggled in that game, completing only 14 of his 35 pass attempts for 143 yards and 2 interceptions. He'll need to be better to win on Saturday night.

South Florida vs Florida Prediction & Pick
These two teams may enter Saturday on the opposite ends of the momentum swing, but there's no denying which team is better. It's the Gators. The Bulls have only converted on 25% of their third down attempts this season, yet have allowed their opponent to convert on 53% of their third downs.
Richardson has yet to throw a touchdown across two games, so he has to be itching to put on a show for the home crowd. His ability to scramble out of the pocket will keep South Florida's defense on its toes and present a ton of scoring opportunities. Florida will pull away with a big second half here.
Final Score Prediction: South Florida: 17 | Florida: 41

While all signs point to this game being a blowout, avoiding the spread is a smart choice. The Gators are 1-8 against the spread (ATS) in their last nine games, while the Bulls are 0-2 ATS to start the year. It's anyone's guess as to who will cover the large spread, so shift gears to the point total, instead.
Florida is expected to get out to a large lead in this game, which means the rushing attack will be the focal point on offense. That'll obviously keep the clock moving in the second half. Overall, the under has hit in four of Florida's last five games dating back to 2021. Back that trend to continue.
