Fun With Stats (& more UF-UT tidbits)

Of note…

* Florida torched Tennessee for 555 yards of offense in 2012 -- its highest total in the Will Muschamp era. The Gators rushed for a season-high 336 yards against the Vols last season.

* UF is last in the SEC in scoring offense (20.0 p/g) but first in total defense (208.5 y/g). Meanwhile, UT is No. 11 in total defense (430.3 y/g) and No. 7 in scoring offense (37.0 p/g).

* Florida -- winners of eight in row over Tennessee -- is 1-1 for the first time since 2004. Cue RON ZOOK RAGE

* Quarterback Jeff Driskel averaged 11.0 yards/attempt in the win over Tennessee in 2012 -- easily a career-best. The junior has topped 7.5 y/a only one other time in his career.

Tennessee 30 Florida 17

"The Volunteers have lost 17 straight versus ranked foes. Their last win was a 31-13 upset over No. 21 South Carolina in 2009."

We will conveniently disregard this statistic, as well as Kentucky being pounded and UGA's loss while we mindlessly rant on about how tough the SEC is.

Carry on.

If Tennessee didn't beat us during the past three seasons, they're not going to beat us this year, or any time soon.

Really wish they got better and made this old rivalry more exciting though.

GO GATORS!

So UT is the medicine we need to wake up our dormant offense, we need to come out and score early and often.
As long as Driskel is not in another gift giving spree we should dominate this game to kick off our path to Atlanta.
Go Gators!!

Kentucky gifted that game as did ug and uf...lol. sec are givers . Except bama. Well they did gift tam last season. Maybe it was a welcome to the sec gift.lmao

jls14234 is buying tickets to watch SC or GA vs. Bama in Atlanta, such a good sec fan.
