Deep Gators lean on variety of playmakers

UF coach Mike White is never quite sure which team is going to show up.

Jim McElwain says Gators' O-line must get more physical in 2017

This time, the Florida Gators finished the right way — with focus, energy and, above all, a win.

Gators' Mark Thompson sets record during Outback win

Mark Thompson cut to the left.

He saw Iowa defenders, several Florida blockers and, 85 yards down the field, the end zone.

"He's had his ups and downs," UF quarterback Austin...
