12. Florida Gators (2-1, 1-1 SEC)

Last Week: Idle

Florida was less than impressive in their 42-21 loss to Alabama in their last game, but following the trip to Tuscaloosa, the Gators had a very important bye week. Next week’s opponent, the Tennessee Volunteers, played impressively on the road but fell to Georgia, 35-32. The Vols are struggling with injuries, and while they may have gained some confidence, Florida had an opportunity to rest and heal.

  • There is a bit of a quarterback controversy brewing in Gainesville after Jeff Driskel struggled against Alabama. The veteran QB completed only nine of 28 passing attempts against the Crimson Tide, and threw for just 93 yards and one touchdown in addition to two interceptions. True freshman Treon Harris has gained support from the Florida fan base, but his time has not yet come.

    Perhaps more disappointing than the play of Driskel has been that of the Gators’ defense in their first two SEC contests. After a stellar 2013 defensive unit kept Florida in games while the offense struggled mightily, this year’s squad has allowed a combined 72 points to Alabama and Kentucky in the last two games. With Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley and company building offensive momentum Saturday, the Gators will once again be tested.
