The Sunday Blog comes at you after what I thought would be wild night at home, but everybody was too pooped to party.
- One thing that continues to be impressive about this Florida team is that the Gators continue to get after the quarterback. Florida now has 20 sacks after getting to Joe Burrow five times. That ranks UF tied for third in the country. Florida needs three sacks to equal the total from last year. And Jachai Polite has a legitimate shot at Alex Brown’s single season record of 13 sacks. Polite has six and Florida should play at least 13 games.
- I checked with Steve Spurrier on Sunday morning and he did collect on his bet with Les Miles. The former LSU coach had to wear a Gator visor with Spurrier’s signature on it Saturday night during a commercial. “He’s from the Bo Schembechler school. He thinks you should wear a hat and not a visor,” Spurrier said.
- I voted Sunday in the AP Poll and I had the Gators all the way up to 14th in the country. You win at Starkville and beat No. 5, you’re gonna get some love from Dr. Football. I finally have given in on UCF and have the Knights at No. 8. I’d still like to see what they would do against an SEC schedule or a Big Ten schedule. Of course, they could have a Power Five schedule that included UCLA, Rutgers, Nebraska, Louisville, Oregon State and Arkansas, they’d still probably be unbeaten. What is the over/under on wins for Scott Frost and Chip Kelly this year? Three?
- One great thing about the Nashville, Tenn., hotel we’re staying at is a great sports bar and a noon game at Vanderbilt. Life is good. Here’s your four-pack:
Georgia at LSU, 3:30 p.m., CBS
Washington at Oregon, 3:30 p.m., ABC
Missouri at Alabama, 7 p.m., ESPN
Wisconsin at Michigan, 7:30 p.m., ABC
