Florida vs. Jacksonville State, Theater of Operations: Reviewing the defense, part two

Part two of our look back at the Florida Gators' defensive performance against the Jacksonville State Gamecock offense.


Let's just get straight to it.

Although I will say looking back on things, I could have made at one of the two defensive reviews "The Jon Bostic Show" or something like that. He played the game of Florida Gators career on Saturday.

Let's just hope he does the same against Florida State.

Play No. 1: Jonathan Bostic's interception return for a touchdown

Bostic on the play, is going to shadow the running back to the left and take advantage of the opportunity presented to him.

Still shadowing the running back.

The shadowing aspect of his defensive assignment leads him right in front of the receiver for the easy interception. The quarterback clearly didn't see Bostic heading that way.

An easy 7 yard return for the touchdown.

Play No. 2: Dante Fowler Jr.'s and Damien Jacobs' sack

Fowler Jr. who is at the top of the line on the edge and Jacobs will combine on the sack. Jacobs is going to run a little cross stunt and attack the right side of the offensive line.

The pressure is on its way.

The pressure up the middle from Earl Okine forces the quarterback to try and leave the pocket. Jonathan Bullard is on the other side (bottom of screen) which makes sure that the quarterback can only move forward.

Got him.

And now it's all down to this: one weekend in Tallahassee, for it all. As we all know, if the Gators win and get a little help from USC, things look good for a BCS Bowl Game and possibly more. If not, well, better luck next year.
