The Gators had success not seen since the Tim Tebow days last year, as they went 11-1 on the way to the Sugar Bowl. Interestingly, though, they didn’t really do it with the offense, as quarterback Jeff Driskel led a passing attack just 118th in the nation. The defense was 5th best in the country, so the adventure that Driskel’s season was turned out alright. He enters this year at the starter again and should only improve despite a typically tough SEC schedule. They lose top running back Mike Gillislee, but five-star recruit Kelvin Taylor will step right in. Their other five-star recruit, Vernon Hargreaves III, will be a star at cornerback, just part of Florida’s ridiculous recruiting class. The Gators produce many an NFL star defensively, and linebacker Jon Bostic (Chicago Bears) and lineman Shariff Floyd (Minnesota Vikings) are just the latest polished products. With the exception of a Week 2 road game at Miami, Florida has an easy schedule through the first five weeks. Other big games come at LSU and at home against Georgia and Florida State. All in all this should be another huge year for Florida football.
The Florida Gators compete in the SEC East and play their home games at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (“The Swamp”) in Gainesville, Florida. This season is the third for head coach Will Muschamp. The Gators have three national titles, eight conference titles, and 40 bowl appearances all-time. Florida has rivalries with Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, Alabama, Auburn, and Miami. The iconic orange-and-blue is one of the most recognizable uniforms in all of sports, as it gained much more national attention as Chris Leak and Tim Tebow led the Gators to championships after the 2006 and 2008 seasons, respectively.
