The offense — What you don’t want to hear

Florida has been explosive early and after halftime, scoring 31 points in the first quarter and 45 in the third. It has 15 scores (nine TDs) on 16 visits to the red zone.

The offense — What you do want to hear

Driskel has been ineffective and was benched Saturday after serving up three picks; he now has six this season. If he doesn’t start, it’ll likely be freshman Treon Harris.

The defense — What you don’t want to hear

The Gators have been extra stingy against the run, allowing 2.8 yards per rush and one TD in four games. They can rush the passer pretty well with 12 sacks.

The defense — What you do want to hear

Florida ranks near the bottom of the SEC in two key categories: They’re eighth in total yards allowed at 370.0 per game and 13th (out of 14 teams) in passing yards allowed at 267.0.
