Our First Good Battle: UF Secondary vs. Ryan Mallett

Arkansas' Ryan Mallett might have enough in him to scare the Gators defense Saturday and that is a good thing. After surviving Baton Rouge, but beating an average offense, Arkansas will have no option to pitch it around as they are 10th in the SEC in rushing. In their four legitimate games (vs. UGA, at Bama, Texas A&M, vs. Auburn), Mallett is averaging 34.5 passing attempts. In their one true beat down against Bama, he still threw it 35 times, completing only 12.

The LSU game showed Florida still has the blood boiling. But it is easy to sit back and let the game come to them after getting past what was supposed to be Florida's biggest hurdle. That cannot happen against a score in bunches offense like Arkansas. In the games against Auburn, Texas A&M and Georgia, Arkansas scored in 11 of 12 quarters. They scored 10 points or more in 6 of those 11 quarters.

In their stiffest test Arkansas was dominated against Bama, so Florida should also handle the Razorbacks. Throw in the return of the conquering heroes of the Bayou and Homecoming Day, Arky is running into trouble. It will take a lot of points and some good luck for Arkansas' 11th national ranked offense to win in Gainesville.
