ON THE GATORS OFFENSE
After struggling mightily in its opener with Michigan, when it netted 192 total yards, UF is starting to come around. The Gators have averaged 414.0 yards a game in the last three outings — with 467 in Saturday’s win over Vanderbilt — and scored 30.3 points per game in that stretch.
ON THE GATORS DEFENSE
The Gators have given up 383.1 yards per game — including 240.3 passing yards. Florida has balanced that with five interceptions, but it’s also allowing 141.0 yards a game on the ground and 26.0 points per game — numbers LSU’s struggling offense would love to exploit.
