Fightin' Gators insights into the Toledo game

The Florida Gators finished game one of what they hope to be an exciting 2013 season.

Gallery: Gators win over Toledo

The Florida Gators had somewhat of a typical home opener Saturday. Not too much flash and dash, a few guys out for disciplinary reasons, and points in the game where they just ween't focused. Nevertheless, the season is here, they are 1-0, and have a big matchup a week from now. Here are some photos from the opener against the Toledo Rockets.

Let’s get it started

It has been a long time coming and the 2013 football season is upon us. The Florida Gators open the season at home in The Swamp against a pretty good and 2012 bowl team in Toledo. The Rockets bring a high flying offense to Gainesville and are looking for an upset. The Gators are looking to get off to a strong start.

Players ready for UF

The Hurricanes, who will play their second of nine games inside the state of Florida this weekend, are set to host the Florida Gators on Saturday. The players are excited.
