Nothing went right for the mighty Gators on
Oct. 14 at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Auburn handed UF its lone loss on the road to
the national championship, a heartbreaking 27-17 final.
The Gators are looking for payback tonight at
8, and, this time, the home field is on their side.
The team watched film from last year's
devastating loss, and players including middle linebacker Brandon
Spikes openly confessed their desire for revenge.
If No. 4 UF (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference)
comes in motivated, it could get ugly.
Auburn has lost twice so far, including to
perennial SEC cellar dweller Mississippi State and stands unranked
at 2-2 overall and 0-1 in SEC play.
The Gators sputtered on their way to a
closer-than-expected 30-24 win over Ole Miss last week and should
come in looking to make up for that sloppy road performance.
Here are some things to look for going into
UF looking ahead: The most anticipated regular
season game of the year comes next week as Florida and LSU could be
playing a No. 2 vs. No. 3 matchup. LSU played like it was looking
ahead in a win over Tulane earlier Saturday. The Gators cannot copy
LSU's performance, or next week's game might not be so
Cox's comeback: Auburn quarterback Brandon Cox
rebounded from being benched earlier in the season to leading the
Tigers to a win over New Mexico State last week. Still, Cox has
thrown three touchdowns to six interceptions this season. Will Cox
continue gaining positive momentum, or will he fall back into his
SEC at stake: A loss for the Tigers would put
them in a huge hole in the SEC West, two games behind LSU. Auburn
needs this win to stay within reach of LSU. With a win, UF would
become the first SEC team to reach 3-0 in conference play. LSU and
Kentucky, both at 2-0, are the only other undefeated teams in
