The Gators’ struggles against the run are well known at this point. Gators rush Success Rate (SR) is 38.8% for the season. Still, UF controlled the game and rushed 37 times eeking out an SR of 32% but did rush the ball for 134 yards. Easy to continue to rush the ball unsuccessfully 68% of the time when your opponent’s Overall SR is 35% and has a 3.6 YPA for the game.
Dawgs defense should at least equal Jorts U and be able to dictate how they want to win this game. UF ran a lot of 10 and 11 personnel against the Vols. (though the schemes are significantly different). UF was able to pass block with 5 OL on a lot of their dropbacks. Maybe Pickens and Fromm get to show out. Look for Cook to get some touches against a UT team that allowed Gators to exceed their season Passing YPA.
