Seven different Gators contributed to Florida’s sack total. Alex Anzalone leads with two and half sacks. Jim McElwain and Chris Rumph also discuss Florida’s defensive front and the strategy for it this season. (Kevin Brockway, Gainesville Sun; Thomas Goldkamp, 247 Sports)

McElwain says Antonio Callaway will “probably not” play Saturday: McElwain reiterated that Callaway was “probably doubtful or highly questionable” when asked about him last night during “Gator Talk.” He mentioned C.J. Worton as someone who could step up in Callaway’s absence. (Ryan Young, SEC Country)

North Texas, and first year head coach Seth Littrell, come to Gainesville: Littrell spent the last two years as offensive coordinator at North Carolina.
