Stingy Florida defense likes Sugar Bowl challenge

Florida is ranked fifth nationally in total defense and third in scoring defense. Yet, safety Josh Evans insists both rankings fail to reflect how good the unit really is.

Louisville Offense on Defense’s Mind

The Florida Gators may have their best defense in a long time taking the field in New Orleans on January 2, but these hard hitters aren’t taking anything for granted.

Florida vs. Louisville: 5 Reasons to Watch the 2013 Sugar Bowl

In bowl season, there are reasons to watch every game.  Some teams show such offensive prowess that it would be unthinkable to miss the show.  Other games promise a defensive showdown that would otherwise be a very boring game. Still others showcase hall of fame head coaches in a battle fit for a highlight reel. The following reasons should motivate you to watch this year’s...

Purifoy adjusting to both sides of the ball

NEW ORLEANS, La. — Practices have become especially exhausting for Florida cornerback/wide receiver Loucheiz Purifoy. He’s spending time at practice on both sides of the ball while also getting increased reps as the kickoff returner. With an ear-to-ear grin after Monday’s practice, the sophomore raved about how much fun he is having while impacting the game in multiple ways this season.

Pease has high expectations for future OL

The Florida offensive line will spend the offseason focusing on replacing the left side of the line, and there will be plenty of talent and options to do so. The departure of left tackle Xavier Nixon and left guard James Wilson will mean two experienced players off the team. The Gators have recruited and added transfers well enough to make up for the loss during the 2013 season.

Sixth in rushing defense, 15th in passing defense and third in scoring defense showed the improvement the group made, but there’s still one area that needs to take a step forward.

It’s nothing a stern halftime message couldn’t change. The Florida head coach laid into his team at halftime of the Orange Bowl Classic, and they responded in the second half to run away with a 78-61 win over Air Force in Sunrise, Fla.

Running Game Still Huge for Florida

Despite all the talk of adding to the offense and passing the ball around, the Florida running game will still be the bread and butter for the offense in the Sugar Bowl match up with Louisville. The passing game will come in the future, but the Gators will lean on Mike Gillislee and the offensive line to do what has gotten them here so far this season.
