Gators to face difficult defense Saturday
Ranked No. 2 in the BCS standings, Florida has a lot to lose going up against No. 7 South Carolina on Saturday.
One-on-one action between players will determine the winner, said starting Gator quarterback Jeff Driskel.
Gator defensive linebacker Jelani Jenkins has been sidelined since injuring his hamstring during last week’s matchup with Vanderbilt. He also injured his thumb earlier in the season.
Florida head coach Will Muschamp said Jenkins will play in the game against South Carolina despite his injuries.
“He should be good,” Muschamp said.
The Gators will be featured on ESPN’s pre-game show College GameDay for the 35th time in school history. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
