Know Your Enemy: Troy

Opponent: Troy Trojans (Formerly Troy State. Changed name so it wasn't confused with Troy Aikman, Troy McClure, and Troy Fowler, that kid who you thought might be gay in 7th grade and ended up working in a hair salon in Hyde Park.)

Location: Troy, Alabama

Conference: Sun Belt Conference since 2004.

2006 Record: 8-5, Sun Belt and New Orleans Bowl winners.

This season: 0-1, 46-26 loss at Arkansas.

Notable Statistic: Against the Fighting Darren McFaddens, Troy allowed seven yards per rush. I hope this means the appearance of "Damn, it's good to be" Chris Rainey in the UF backfield.

Notable Player(s): QB Omar Haugabook: (pictured) nine rushing attempts for 38 net yards last week at Arkansas. Was 15-43 passing with a pick, TD, and 204 yards. Expect them to pitch it around. Also, Haugabook is from Belle Glade, home of the fastest people in America.
CB Leodis McKelvin was second last season in tackles and had one INT with seven broken up. Last week, he had nine tackles.

Unconfirmed Rumor About Team: WR Josh Allen is a graduate of Tift County (Ga.) High School. In honor of his school, and to psyche out his opponents, he stands at the 50 yard line during pregame warm-ups and does `The Devil Walk'.
