Florida Gator Football

Much can be done with the last two games
Urban Meyer was quick to point out after Florida's devastating loss at South Carolina that his Gators still have a lot to play for.

Bowl picture is getting clearer
While Florida's football team doesn't know where it will be playing a bowl game, the Gators have an idea after Saturday's games where they won't be bowling.

Thriving rivalry
Urban Meyer continues to learn about Florida's football rivalries. One thing he's finding out is there are plenty of them.

Secondary a primary UF concern
It may be called the secondary, but Florida's defensive backfield is one of the primary reasons the Gators have three losses this season.

FSU's woes on defense are no joke
Mickey Andrews isn't much of a comedian, but you can hardly fault Florida State's defensive coordinator and secondary coach for developing a self-deprecating sense of humor as a way of dealing the problems that have beset his unit this season.

Comparing FSU and Florida: Quarterbacks
FSU: Drew Weatherford 6-3, 220, Fr., Land O' Lakes Key stats: 349 Attempts, 207 Completions, 2,440 yards, 15 TDs, 15 Ints., 59.3-percent, 244 yards per-game

Meyer: Plenty left to play for
Florida is out of the Southeastern Conference race, out of the Bowl Championship Series picture and could be headed to the Dec. 30 Independence Bowl -- the lowest bowl on the SEC's food chain this year.

Seniors, recruiting motivate UF
The Gators and the Seminoles have six losses between them. For UF, there are no BCS implications in Saturday's game, win or lose.

Florida Gator Basketball

New-look Gators winning with hustle
Blink, and you missed it. And if you did, you missed some of the most entertaining basketball you're likely to see all season.

Florida Gator Volleyball

Crown fits UF again
They made it look easy. Almost too easy. Set with the challenge of facing a red-hot Alabama team on its home court, the Florida volleyball team accomplished exactly what it has grown accustomed to - winning.
