CBS Sports predicts tight competition between Florida and Oregon State

Florida is dealing with plenty of roster changes as players depart for the NFL and head to the transfer portal, but there’s still a bowl game to be played on Saturday and CBS Sports thinks the vulnerable Gators have the game. closer than many people. Hope.

CBS Sports has the Gators losing to Oregon State this weekend by just three points, 24-21, despite the Beavers entering the game as two-score favorites. Both teams are down the starting quarterback, so the assumption here is that neither offense will be particularly effective.

Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports wrote, “Considering how inefficient the Gators’ offense was all year (79th nationally in success rate), it’s hard to imagine things improving without a player who hasn’t been able to create anything.” Seemed capable.”

Florida’s backfield may have the tandem of Montreal Johnson Jr. and Trevor Etienne written off, but their success isn’t guaranteed this weekend with the anchor of the offensive line, right guard O’Cyrus Torrance, sitting outside.

The good news is that Oregon State’s best quarterback is in the transfer portal and the Beavers’ offense “hasn’t been great” under center Ben Gulbranson. Florida’s defense will return most of its regular starters, but it’s been a tumultuous year for that side of the ball and there’s no telling which version will be on the field Saturday. This matchup should be the difference maker.

It’s no surprise that CBS Sports panned the game as “a scrappy, low-scoring affair,” but Florida could end the first year of the Napier era on a positive note.
