Ole Miss vs. Florida 2015: TV info, online streaming and game time

If you ask Jim Mcelwain, who's really pumping up the underdog angle, there's no reason to even turn the TV on.

Look, I get the whole underdog motivational ploy, but Jim Mcelwain is beating the damn thing into the ground this week.

"Let's go to work, get a little bit better and go play [an Ole Miss] team that I'm sure is going to come in here and figure they should beat the heck out of us," Florida's head coach said on Monday. "A highly ranked opponent that has everything going for them."

Mcelwain's been parroting variations of that statement all week in an annoyingly transparent attempt to paint his team as a disrespected upstart bunch.

(Hugh Freeze refused to take the media bait when asked about it on Monday: "I'm not sure why Coach McElwain said that our team has no regard for their team. I'm sure he has a reason.")

But the mere fact that a Florida Gators football team feels the need to play the underdog card at home against an Ole Miss team just three short years from going winless in the SEC is credit to how quickly Freeze has turned around this program. The No. 3-ranked Rebs opened game day as a full touchdown and an extra point favorite in the Swamp against a 4-0 Gators team. Who saw that coming in 2013?
