Florida Gators: Terrance Broadway
Saturday, 12:21 p.m. ET
Florida Field, Gainesville, Fla.
Gators to watch
FS Josh Evans: Evans is having the best season of his career, and not only because he leads the Gators with 62 tackles. He has picked off two passes, broken up three others and has two sacks as a blitzer. His improvement has allowed the Gators to walk SS Matt Elam up to the line of scrimmage without worrying about giving up the big play.
RB Chris Johnson: He has only touched the ball five times on offense, but Johnson is pretty much everywhere on special teams. He nearly had a touchdown on a fumble return against South Carolina and he leads the Gators with nine special teams tackles.
Ragin’ Cajuns to watch
QB Terrance Broadway: He has filled in capably for Blaine Gautier (broken hand) and is coming off back-to-back games in which he has accounted for at least 349 yards of total offense. He threw for 265 and rushed for 84 against Arkansas State and threw for 373 and rushed for 87 against Louisiana-Monroe. He’ll have a tougher time against UF, which is giving up only 140.1 yards passing per game.
Florida Gators, SEC, Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns, Andre Debose, Chris Johnson, Matt Elam, Blaine Gautier, Josh Evans, Omarius Hines, Quinton Dunbar, Solomon Patton, Javone Lawson, Terrance Broadway, Jamal Robinson, Christian Ringo, Jermalous Moten, Fred Weary, Lawrence Wright, Teako Brown
Here are five storylines for the game:
1. Gators won’t be grounded: Florida has got to find ways to make some plays down the field in the pass game before the Nov. 24 FSU game. The Gators are going to work on that against the Ragin’ Cajuns. That means better pass protection from the offensive line and the backs and tight ends who have to pick up rushers, as well as better work from the receivers. It might be time to get Raphael Andrades and Latroy Pittman more involved as pass catchers, because Quinton Dunbar and Frankie Hammond have not been consistent enough, although they have come through with several big plays.
