Whether Jim Harbaugh will be on the sidelines for his alma mater in this game will be determined by a court’s ruling this Friday.

If Shane Beamer’s team can win at home Saturday vs. Kentucky, it’ll be playing to attain bowl eligibility vs. Clemson.
FSU remained unbeaten with Saturday’s non-covering home win over Miami. Therefore, considering how the Seminoles host an FCS foe, North Alabama, this weekend, they’ll be undefeated for this visit to The Swamp. FanDuel has FSU as a 10.5-point road favorite, while the Gators are +340 on the money line.
Florida gave up the most yards in program history in Saturday’s 52-35 loss at LSU as a 16-point road underdog. The Gators have lost three games in a row both SU and ATS, and they’re 1-3 both SU and ATS in four road assignments this year.
UF has won three of the last four over FSU in this rivalry, going 3-0-1 ATS. If the Gators lose Saturday at Missouri, they’ll be trying to avoid a third consecutive losing season for the first time in the program’s existence when the ‘Noles come to town.
Arizona in an 8.5-point road favorite at Arizona St. The Sun Devils, who are +285 on the money line, are off a 17-7 win at Washington St. as 14-point road underdogs. The Wildcats have won four games in a row after beating Colorado on a walk-off field goal in Boulder.
