And after Week 7 of the 2018 season, the Florida Gators rested.

The nation’s 11th-ranked team is going to need it.

Gators rally for win over Vanderbilt despite turnovers, penalties and skirmish

Trailing by 18 points and facing their first loss at Vanderbilt since 1988, the No. 14 Florida Gators needed something special.

Coach Dan Mullen’s team would respond by repeating history.

Burned by explosive plays to fall into a 21-3 hole, the Gators made some big plays of their own to reel off...

Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason says trash-talking Gator escalated bench-clearing skirmish

The Gators needed a spark. Instead they ignited a powder keg.

Down 21-10 and looking sluggish on offense, receiver Freddie Swain took a Vanderbilt punt up the far sideline. Linebacker James Houston searched for a victim in black and gold to block.

He found one in defensive lineman Dare Odeyingbo....

Skirmish breaks out between Florida and Vanderbilt head coaches

A skirmish broke out between Florida and Vanderbilt in the first half on Saturday. Following a punt return that saw a Florida player ejected for targeting on a block. Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason appeared to have words with Florida's sideline. Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham could...

UF coach Dan Mullen entertains fans, exasperates foes with play-calling prowess

More than 90,000 people were watching closely, but Dan Mullen did not care.

The Florida coach was confident no one was going to notice, especially the LSU Tigers Saturday in the sold-out Swamp.

Trailing 19-14 and facing first-and-10 in the red zone, Mullen slipped 6-foot-6, 255-pound tight end...

UF safeties Brad Stewart, Donovan Stiner gaining confidence ahead of Vanderbilt matchup

UF safety Brad Stewart knew it.

More than 90,000 fans packed into the Swamp knew it.

His 25-yard interception return for a touchdown — capped with a dive that nudged the front pylon — essentially sealed LSU’s fate Saturday.

What the New Orleans native didn’t know probably would’ve saved him another...

A view from the Vanderbilt Commodores' sideline entering visit from Gators

Adam Sparks of The Tennessean answers five questions about the Vanderbilt Commodores heading into Saturday’s visit from the No. 14 Florida Gators.

1. A six-win season in 2016 earned coach Derek Mason a raise and a three-year contract extension. The Commodores are 1-9 in the SEC since then and seem...

UF tight end Moral Stephens making most of his last chance with Gators

UF tight end Moral Stephens would start over if he could.

At least the Gators’ fifth-year senior will finish what he started.

Until recently, Stephens was a non-factor at UF and a forgotten member of the 2014 class, a collection of players with stories of success, scandal, redemption and even tragedy.


10/09/2018 03:25 PM
UF linebacker Vosean Joseph a big surprise for Gators' resurgent defense

Vosean Joseph always could hit. Much too often, UF’s hard-charging linebacker could also miss.

Joseph’s go-for-broke style created some highlight-reel plays and some head-scratching ones. Joseph’s inconsistency eventually would cost him his spot with the first-team defense during spring practices.

UF coach Dan Mullen taken with Gators' tight end Lucas Krull

Dan Mullen has heard it before.

College football rosters are littered with plenty of two-sport stars from high school. Few of them still have the skills for more than football, even if they really ever did.

“Everybody tells me they can throw, right?” Mullen said.

Backup tight end Lucas Krull is...

UF coach Dan Mullen said Gators' toughest opponent entering Vanderbilt week is themselves

Unlike Nick Saban, Dan Mullen is not a big believer in trap games.

Mullen feels like the entire SEC schedule is fraught with peril, including Saturday’s visit to struggling Vanderbilt - losers to the Florida Gators in all but one season since 1988.

Coming of the program’s first win against a top...

The Florida Gators’ first win over a top 5 opponent in three years has moved them eight spots to No. 14 in the Associated Press top 25.

UF’s 27-19 comeback win over unbeaten LSU is the fourth straight win for the Gators (5-1, 3-1 SEC) and first against a ranked opponent since the Tennessee game...

Three things we learned from Florida's win over LSU

The then-No. 22 Florida Gators pushed for an emotional 27-19 win over then-No. 5 LSU Saturday. Check out the top three things we learned from the UF victory:

1. The Swamp could be back.

Once the ultimate home-field advantage in college football, the Swamp had lost its soul in recent seasons.

No. 22 Gators' defense helps lift UF to 27-19 upset of No. 5 LSU

A pre-game, locker-room pep talk from Florida legends Tim Tebow and Danny Wuerffel offered the Gators inspiration.

Moments later, coach Dan Mullen provided the energy to a sellout crowd, whipping it into a frenzy while he hopped up and down in the south end-zone tunnel and waved his arms like a...

Feleipe Franks channels inner Tebow and leads Gators to monumental win over LSU

On a manic, frantic Saturday when the Florida Gators inducted iconic quarterback Tim Tebow into their Ring of Honor, another QB, Feleipe Franks, channeled his inner Tebow and willed the Gators to their biggest home victory in years over No. 5-ranked LSU.

With UF celebrating the 10-year anniversary...

Gator great Tim Tebow emotional during UF Ring of Honor induction ceremony

Gator great Tim Tebow joined his former UF teammates near the 20-yard line at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Members of the 2008 national championship team stood in front of him — just as they’d done 10 years earlier — and watched as Tebow’s name was the latest to be added in the UF Ring of Honor.

South Carolina backup QB Michael Scarnecchia lifts Gamecocks to win over Missouri

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Backup quarterback Michael Scarnecchia threw for three touchdowns in his first college start and Parker White hit the winning 33-yard field goal with two seconds left in South Carolina's 37-35 victory over Missouri on Saturday.

Gators host LSU in SEC heavyweight matchup of top 25 teams

A sold-out Swamp, a championship team on the sideline and an SEC heavyweight matchup between top 25 teams.

It seems like old times in Gainesville.

It also is how first-year coach Dan Mullen wants Saturdays at home to feel when his Florida Gators take the field. A win over No. 5 LSU would be a big...
