Gators wary of Vanderbilt rebound: Sure, the Commodores were steamrolled by the top-ranked Tide last weekend, but Jim McElwain notes that the scores of the last two Florida-Vanderbilt games were 9-7 and 13-6. And that those were both noon kicks - as is Saturday’s meeting. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun; Ryan Young, SEC Country)
A closer look at McElwain’s record in close games: In his first 30 games with Florida, ten of them have been decided by eight points or fewer. The Gators are 9-1 in those games. (Jordan McPherson, SEC Country)
Tyrie Cleveland and Kadarius Toney replacing Antonio Callaway: In the playmaking department. (Jordan McPherson, SEC Country)
Malik Davis has arrived: The freshman running back is averaging a robust 7.5 yards per carry this fall, when including his 72-yard run against Tennessee. But even without that play, his average is 4.92 yards per carry. (Ryan Young, SEC Country)
Florida men’s golf captures Trinity Forest title: The Gators won the inaugural event by ten strokes. (Andrew Kovar, Florida Gators)
Don’t worry about Matt Corral’s commitment: Stop worrying about the five-star QB, and Gator pledge, removing “UF commit” from his Twitter account profile. Also, stop tweeting at recruits. (Zach Abolverdi, SEC Country)

Meet Student Mr. Two Bits: There are two of them for the Vanderbilt game, both are fifth-year seniors and both submitted videos seeking the spot. (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)
Johnny Townsend is “not a normal punter”: Brandon Powell notes that Townsend is quick, one of the strongest players on the team, and gets double teamed because he makes tackles. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun)
Yeah, I posted this in a comment already but it’s worth putting up again:
