Luke Del Rio is rusty in return: Del Rio had some struggles in his return from a four week playing hiatus. (Alex Peterman, Florida Gators; Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel; Jordan McPherson, Miami Herald)
How about that defense though?: As Andy noted, Florida’s defense is hell on quarterbacks. Drew Lock, who entered the game ranked first in the SEC in passing, had only 39 yards through the air. Lock’s only touchdowns were to Gator DBs. (Chris Harry, Florida Gators; Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel)
In its 40-14 victory over Missouri, Florida’s defense allowed just two completions on passes that traveled beyond the line of scrimmage pic.twitter.com/tVaUEehlNN— PFF College Football (@PFF_College) October 16, 2016
Cat skeleton “controversy”: (Those are words I never thought I’d write.) The gist is that apparently a Florida fan brought a Halloween cat skeleton to the game, with what appears to be gold and purple beads on it, and eventually threw it onto the field where it was picked up by Florida players. Did that fan intend that as a slight to LSU, who just lost their beloved tiger mascot Mike VI? Maybe? Did the Gators who saw it take it that way, or did they maybe just think it was a weird Halloween object? I don’t know! Apparently there was enough concern over this that Florida did end up issuing a statement about it. (Nick Cole, SEC Country; Morgan Moriarty, SB Nation)
The Halloween cat seen on the field after last nights game was thrown onto the field by a fan. It has no significance within our program.— Gators Football (@GatorsFB) October 16, 2016
Florida, national championship sleeper?: But, “they’d have to become a different team than they are.” Uh ... thanks, Paul?

And, ICYMI, Jeremy Foley was given the game ball:
