Gators keep it interesting until the end - again: Florida pulled off another close one on Saturday. Jim McElwain moves to 9-1 with the Gators in one-possession games. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators; Pat Dooley, Gainesville Sun; Ethan Bauer, Miami Herald)

Florida finding an offensive identity: Jim McElwain praised Kadarius Toney, Malik Davis, Brandon Powell and Tyrie Cleveland for their performances against the Wildcats.

Of course, the Kentucky game has also reignited the Gators’ quarterback controversy. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun)
