Plans for Florida’s stand-alone football facility released: The facility, part of the UAA’s facilities master plan, has an estimated cost of $60 million and is not anticipated to be completed until summer 2019.

Jordan Scarlett deserves to be featured back in 2017: Scarlett proved he can be the Gators’ primary rusher next year. (Ryan Young, SEC Country)
