September 7, 2013 marks the final time for a while that the Miami Hurricanes and Florida Gators will meet on the gridiron for quite some time. The two powerhouse programs from the state of Florida meet in Sunlife Stadium today in the first true out of conference test for both programs this season.
The ‘Canes are coming off a convincing win last week to open the season against FAU. Duke Johnson put on a masterful performance in the opening week and will look to replicate that against a very tough Gators defense.
Florida opened up last week with a 24-6 victory over the Toledo Rockets of the MAC. While the UF offense looked suspect at times, to say the least, they also got a great showing from their running back, Mack Brown. The Gators will have his tag team partner back with him today as this will be the first appearance for Matt Jones of the season.
As this showdown plays itself out today, feel free to join in on the conversation below.
