The Gators, in their first year under head coach Will Muschamp, are looking to recover after two straight losses to two of the top teams in the nation. Florida fell to No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama over the last two weeks.
The Florida offense is led by multi-purpose threat Chris Rainey. The running back leads the team in both rushing and receiving, with 433 yards rushing and two scores this season, while catching 16 passes for 246 yards and two touchdowns.
Running back Jeff Demps and wideout Andre Debose are also key contributors to the Florida attack.
The Florida defense is ranked 11th in the nation, giving up 291 yards per game. The depth chart is full of highly-touted players recruited by Urban Meyer, but they’ve struggled in the last two games, especially against the run.
Key players to watch are linebacker Jon Bostic, who leads the team with 42 stops and three sacks, and standout defensive tackle Jaye Howard. Safety Matt Elam is the linchpin of the secondary.
