Gators bandwagon keeps growing, college football guru Phil Steele likes Florida…A LOT.

The Florida bandwagon looks like it’s getting a bit bigger this week thanks to Phil Steele. Steele currently works for the Orlando Sentinel, but his yearly college football preview magazine is a must-read for any die-hard college football fan. Steele posted this as his first prediction for week 8:

Here are my bold predictions for Week 8:

1. Florida will beat South Carolina by double digits

The Florida Gators have been featured in this column on almost a weekly basis, and all they have done is go a perfect 6-0, earning the No. 2 spot in the first BCS standings on the strength of their quality wins over Texas A&M, Tennessee and LSU. This week is yet another test for them, as they welcome the South Carolina Gamecocks and former coach Steve Spurrier in a game that could determine the winner of the SEC East division.

There are many reasons why I think Florida will win this easier than expected. Let’s start by looking at the schedules these two have played to date.
