PLAYERS: Jaylen Watkins
TEAMS: Florida Gators
Florida meets Tennessee on Saturday in The Swamp, and many players on both teams can’t remember the last time the Gators lost to the Volunteers. Many weren’t following the team they now play for or even interested in college football the last time it happened. With an eight game winning streak on the line, Florida’s Jaylen Watkins is excited for the SEC rivalry and wants to win it as much as any.

Florida Gators release updated depth chart

Jaylen Watkins will take over for Marcus Maye at safety. (Photo credit: Kim Klement/US Presswire) The Florida Gators released an updated version of the team’s depth chart this week and there were a few changes. Most notably, senior Jaylen Watkins will take over for redshirt freshman Marcus Maye as one of Florida’s starting safeties. The move is not all that surprising. Maye got...

Jeff Driskel confident as Gators turn focus to Vols

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- His record as Floridas starting quarterback is 11-3 (12-3 if you count that he played the majority of the 2012 opener and started, just not at QB), but those aren't the numbers Jeff Driskel has been hearing and reading about the last week or so. The one that's come up is 10, as in the number of turnovers the UF junior has committed (six interceptions...

Vols seek change of fortune against No. 19 Florida

Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley says he sometimes sings along to ''Rocky Top'' while hearing it over and over again whenever the Gators face Tennessee. ''Something gets so annoying, you got to make the best out of it,'' Easley said. Lately, that's about the only way Tennessee has been able to bother Florida. Florida has beaten Tennessee...

Go on a date with man’s step-daughter and get Florida/Tennessee tickets

Halapio ready to return Saturday

Jon Halapio isn’t used to the sidelines. The redshirt senior has played in 41 games and started 33 during his first three years on the field for Florida. Sitting out the first two games of this season -- especially having to watch a loss -- because of a pectoral injury was tough. Halapio returned to practice last week and will be back with the Florida offensive line on Saturday...

Gators preparing for rival Tennessee

Florida head coach Will Muschamp is challenging his team to avoid the history. The Gators are riding an eight-game wining streak against Tennessee, and the Volunteers head to Gainesville this weekend off a 45-point thumping from Oregon. Tennessee still provides a challenge for a Florida team that hasn’t been able to take advantage of its opportunities on offense.

The Toledo Rocket football team has some pretty strict rules for their hotel behavior

  Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post leaked this photo of the rules of the road for the Toledo Rocket football team. Toledo opened their season with a 26-3 loss to the Florida Gators but that probably didn’t have anything to do with their hotel behavior (unless this is new).

Muschamp optimistic about UF injuries

The Gators wanted to get back on the field last weekend after their loss to Miami, but once they got a chance to reevaluate, the bye week came at a good time to help the team get healthy. The offensive line was banged up against Miami, which slowed the running game. Florida expects all offensive linemen to be healthy for this weekend’s rivalry game against Tennessee.
