Gators need to play disciplined against dual-threat QB: Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs had success running on Florida’s defense last year. Dobbs rushed for 136 yards on 18 carries, including one 62 yard run. He also caught a swing pass on a gadget play and turned it into a 58 yard touchdown. Florida’s defense reviewed the film from last year and noted missed tackles, bad angles, and poorly disciplined pursuit. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun; Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel)
