Rapid Recap: Florida-Alabama Week (9/18)

Florida has a lot going against it on Saturday including the top of the mountain when it comes to college coaches in Nick Saban.

The Florida Gators are going to fight history both distant and recent when they head to Tuscaloosa on Saturday to take on Alabama. The Gators haven't matched up favorably against the Crimson Tide in recent history, but feel like they could have something for this weekend.

One weapon Alabama brings to the table is junior receiver Amari Cooper who currently leads the SEC in receiving yards. It is a tough match for Florida who would like to play sophomore Vernon Hargreaves on Cooper for most of the match.

Florida's defense will also have tp match up against maybe the nation's best running attack and certainly an Army of running backs that could compete with anyone in football, and that could include the professional ranks. The Gators defense hasn't been a slouch for a while and they think they will be ready.

The Gators will also have to rely on their passing game in the contest. The Gators are in the top four in offensive passing production among SEC schools and know that is how to attack the Bama defense.

Cody and Amanda talk about all of this and more in this latest edition of Fightin' Gators Rapid Recap.
