The No. 3 Florida Gators have had a rather easy time during their run into the Sweet 16 of the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. 

Billy Donovan's team advanced to the Sweet 16 with double-digit wins over No. 14 Northwestern State and No. 11 Minnesota in Austin, TX last weekend. 

On Friday, the Gators will head down to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX to take on their new in-state rival No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast, who have been the Cinderella story of the tournament. 

Here are five keys to the Gators' success on Friday as they look to advance to an Elite Eight showdown with either No. 1 Kansas or No. 4 Michigan in the South Regional Final on Sunday.
