1 -- Games Spurrier has won at Doak Campbell Stadium -- as a player. Spurrier is 0-4-1 since taking over as Florida head coach in 1990 but did lead the Gators to a 22-19 victory in Tallahassee in 1966 as the starting quarterback.
1:54 -- Average time of Florida's 49 offensive touchdown drives this season.
2 -- Games the Seminoles have had three receivers reach the 100-yard mark this season. Against Clemson, it was Marvin Minnis (163), Atrews Bell (111) and Javon Walker (109) doing the damage. Bell (146), Minnis (145) and Anquan Boldin (108) also did it against Miami. That had happened only once previously in school history.
2.80 -- Points Florida trails FSU in the BCS standings. Florida State trails No. 2 Miami by 0.48 and No. 1 Oklahoma by 3.82.
3 -- Division I-A schools have won 110 games since 1990 -- Florida, Florida State and Nebraska.
5 -- Games lost by the Seminoles' 2000 senior class during the past five seasons. Their 55 victories give them the best winning percentage (.917) of any class in school history.
6 -- Pages devoted to Bowden's bio in the Florida State media guide, compared to 12 for Spurrier in the Florida media guide.
12 -- Florida-FSU games played in the 1990s -- 10 regular season plus two Sugar Bowls. It was the most times two Division I-A schools played each other in the decade.
13 -- Consecutive seasons both teams enter this game ranked in the top 10. Florida and FSU are the only schools to finish each of the past 10 seasons ranked in the top 15 of the final polls. The Seminoles are the only team to finish in the top four for 13 consecutive seasons.
16 -- Points separating the two teams in the 12 games since Spurrier arrived at Florida.
26-12-2 -- Florida's all-time series lead against Florida State, dating back to their first meeting in 1958. Bowden, though, is 14-11-1 against the Gators. The Gators have a winning record (9-8-1) in Tallahassee.
31-2 -- Chris Weinke's record as the Seminoles' starting quarterback. His winning percentage of .939 is the seventh-best all time among QBs with at least 20 starts. Former 'Nole Charlie Ward is 12th on the list with a 22-2 (.917) record from 1992-93.
34 -- Turnovers forced by the Gators' defense, most in the nation.
50-0-1 -- FSU's home record since a loss to Miami on Nov. 16, 1991. That includes a 3-0-1 mark against Florida.

265 -- Yards gained by the Seminoles in scoring 28 fourth-quarter points and tying the Gators 31-31 at Doak in 1994. The Gators had a 31-3 lead after three quarters but watched FSU quarterback Danny Kanell complete 18 of 22 passes for 232 yards to bring the 'Noles back.
300 -- Yards rushing by FSU tailback Travis Minor (on 63 carries) in three games against Florida.
5,000 -- Hotel rooms in Tallahassee, not nearly enough for all the news and sports media in town to cover this game and the presidential election saga. Every hotel room within 75 miles has been sold out for a year.
