Challenges for Florida

Florida’s win over Texas A&M could open some doors for the Gators. Next up is the Gamecocks of South Carolina.

No, not stellar, but he has led his team to six victories. Running back Marshawn Lloyd (Questionable) is a weapon for the Gamecocks. Lloyd has 556 yards rushing for nine touchdowns. His best game this season was against Charlotte. In that game, he had 169 yards rushing for three touchdowns. Lloyd also has 17 catches for 173 yards and two touchdowns.
