Florida coach Billy Donovan knows what his team will see from Florida State, regardless of the program’s record or talent level. The tough defense Seminoles head coach Leonard Hamilton brought to Tallahassee has been a staple of the team and a key factor in the program’s first ACC championship last season. The 4-3 Seminoles are coming off back-to-back losses as they welcome No. 5 Florida.
BEST OF MAXIM
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Winning six games by an average of 25.4 points to open the season is one way to get attention. Defeating a team you faced in the Sweet 16 a year ago by 33 points is another way.
The Gators have done both, their 6-0 start good enough to climb to No. 6 in the latest AP Top 25 and to No. 5 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. That is Floridas highest ranking in the polls...
Last year the Florida Gators had one of the best offenses in the nation (3rd), scoring a strength adjusted 1.21 points per possession (PPP), which was the second most under Billy Donovan. But defensively they struggled. They were 71st nationally, and 8th in conference-only games. They ended up getting knocked out of the Elite 8 because they couldn't get stops against Louisville...
Kenny Boynton and Mike Rosario both scored 14 points Wednesday night and No. 6 Florida romped to a 72-47 victory over defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion Florida State.
Boynton's layup with 8:57 left gave the Gators their largest lead, 62-25.
Florida (7-0) has held five opponents to less than 50 points this season while taking its fourth straight win over the Seminoles...
The Florida Gators had arguably one of the more feared defensive lines in college football in 2012. That line looks to be a whole lot different in 2013. Graduation and NFL attrition will take its toll on the defensive front, but the Gators will have some answers. Here is a look at what to expect and what the Gators need when the clock strikes 12 on the Sugar Bowl game on Jan 2.
No. 6 Florida scored its third fewest points this season, but it didn’t matter. The Gators still won 72-47. In its first true road test of the season, Florida went to Tallahassee and came away with its fourth straight win over the Seminoles in a game that wasn’t close from the opening tipoff. The 25-point margin was the largest for any team in the rivalry for games played in Tallahassee.
Head coach Will Muschamp has the Florida Gators ready for Sugar in only his second season. The Gators capped off a remarkable run in 2012 with a lopsided victory on the road over Florida State. The Gators ended the season 11-1 and the only team in America with wins over four of the top twelve teams in the BCS.

Hey FSU, if you can't beat Mercer at home, good luck with Florida. The reality is that FSU has enough talent but they're missing an offensive spark. Is it likely that they'll find it tonight against the #2 Pomeroy ranked Florida...
I wonder if the Sugar Bowl will sell out? When the Florida Gators play the Louisville Cardinals, the Gator fans better show up to fill up the New Orleans Superdome. To common sense fans, Oklahoma would be the right team to play the Gators.The Orange Bowl has a real treat. Florida State will have fun in blowing out Northern Illinois. I think they should give the Alabama and Notre...
