Jarrad Davis has badly sprained ankle; no timetable for his return: Davis, whom Teez Tabor called the “heart and soul of our team,” left Saturday’s game with an ankle injury. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators; Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel)

Gators take lead in SEC East: With Tennessee’s loss to Alabama on Saturday, Florida controls its destiny in the SEC. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun)

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)

Gators’ running backs have big day: Florida had 287 yards on the ground against Missouri, with Jordan Scarlett and Lamical Perine each going over 100 yards. (Graham Hall, Gainesville Sun)

On Florida’s pick-six pals: Teez Tabor and Quincy Wilson had fun on Saturday, I think. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators; Ryan Young, SEC Country)

Tyrie Cleveland flashes for Gators: Cleveland had a team-high 79 yards receiving on three catches. (Kevin Brockway, Gainesville Sun; Zach Abolverdi, SEC Country)

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)

Florida, national championship sleeper?: But, “they’d have to become a different team than they are.” Uh ... thanks, Paul?
