Some numbers to chew on with your breakfast bagel.

The Gators are 102nd in the nation in total offense. UF’s recent struggles on defense are also reflected in the conference statistics. The Gators are seventh in the SEC in total defense, giving up 373.2 yards a game.
Of Eddy Pineiro’s 24 kickoffs this season, 23 have been for touchbacks.

Will Muschamp’s Florida teams were usually among the most penalized in the SEC. It’s a different story now that Muschamp is at South Carolina. The Gamecocks are the league’s least penalized team, averaging only 28.2 yards in penalties a game.
UF’s Johnny Townsend leads the league in punting with a 48.8-yard average, but the Gators are fifth in net punting (41.7).
