Despite having a grand total of 0 passing yards, Georgia Southern upset Florida on Saturday.

Does Florida have any shot against Florida State next weekend?

CFB: (22) Florida at (14) Missouri

What a week for the Missouri Tigers. On one hand, they traveled to Georgia and beat the Bulldogs, catapulting them up the rankings and keeping them undefeated. On the other, they lost quarterback James Franklin for at least a few weeks, putting their fledgling SEC East title hopes in jeopardy. Speaking of SEC East title hopes, the Florida Gators' took a hit with an uninspiring loss to the LSU Tigers a week ago. Which team leaves better off?
