Gators' seniors seek sweet Sugar Bowl ending

NEW ORLEANS -- Most of them lurked in the shadows three years ago when the Gators were last here for the Sugar Bowl. They were on the team but it wasn't their team. The 2009 Florida team that trampled Cincinnati to cap a 13-1 season belonged to a group of upperclassmen led by seniors Tim Tebow and Brandon Spikes. Florida's starting lineup that night featured 16 players...

Replacing Bostic will be tough

Senior linebacker Jon Bostic always had the tools. He came to Gainesville with an impressive blend of size and speed, adding coverage skills from a childhood of playing in the secondary before he hit a growth spurt. He finally put it all together in 2012 to complete a strong season. The Gators have candidates to replace Bostic next season, but they’ll need some inexperienced players to improve.

A long three years

The Florida program has come full circle since the end of the 2009 season. The Gators finished that year with a berth in the Sugar Bowl where they pounded Cincinnati to send a successful senior class out with a 27-point win. The last two seasons have been inconsistent, but the Gators are back in New Orleans to cap off this season with another berth in the Sugar Bowl, rejoining the national elite.

Scouting Report: Florida

Here's the game Dave Pilipovich and his first-year coaching staff have been waiting for. Facing Colorado was a challenge. Meeting Wichita State brought out a lot of fire in the Air Force men's basketball team. However, Saturday's showdown against the Florida Gators will tell the Falcons where they truly stand as the Mountain West Conference season approaches.

Gators ride strong second half to win

Billy Donovan watched from the sideline as his team played an uninspired first half on Saturday and went to the locker room with a 33-31 lead over Air Force. It’s nothing a stern halftime message couldn’t change.
