GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- No. 4 Florida plays at Vanderbilt on Saturday, the classic "trap" game before the Gators play host to No. 3 South Carolina on Oct. 20. The Gators (5-0, 4-0 SEC) have won 21 in a row in the series and haven’t lost to the Commodores since 1982.

Here's five storylines for the game:

1. Avoid an emotional letdown: Florida had a huge victory over then-No. 4 LSU last Saturday and is now squarely in the national championship race. With a showdown against South Carolina looming, it’s natural that the Gators wouldn’t be as ready emotionally for this game considering the fact that none of UF’s players were alive the last time the school lost to the Commodores. However, the Gators can’t get caught looking ahead because this Vanderbilt team is essentially the same one that came into Gainesville last season and nearly won.
