Florida vs South Florida live stream How to watch on TV. The Florida Gators have a date with No. 1 Alabama next week. But first, coach Dan Mullen and his team have another in-state battle in Tampa. The 1-0 Gators, who moved up to No. 9 on the USA Today AFCA Coaches Poll, visit the 0-1 South Florida Bulls on Saturday afternoon in the final tune-up before Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide roll into Gainesville.
Florida got off to a hot start in its 35-14 season-opening win over Florida Atlantic in front of a raucous crowd at The Swamp. The Gators’ two quarterbacks — starter Emory Jones and Anthony Richardson — had good games rushing, with Jones running for 74 yards and Richardson exploding on a few plays for 160 ground yards and a touchdown. Dameon Pierce caught two touchdowns, and Malik Davis ran for 104 yards and a TD.
USF had a rougher time, losing 45-0 at NC State in their opener. Starting quarterback Cade Fortin and his backup, Timmy McClain, combined to go 14 for 33 for 167 yards and three interceptions. The Bulls are coached by Jeff Scott, who worked under Dabo Swinney at Clemson.

The latest depth chart is identical to the one the Gators released last week (apologies to fans that were hoping to see Anthony Richardson start on Saturday), including the “or” at running back between Malik Davis and Dameon Pierce, despite Davis seeing the bulk of the carries in Week 1.
