Gators Football News: Florida Looking To Keep It On The Ground Against Vanderbilt

The Florida Gators' plan for offensive success isn't a hard one to game plan for. However, it's whether or not opposing defenses can stop the team's run-heavy attack that will be the difference between wins and losses.

"People are going to game plan our run, and there are great defensive coordinators out there that are going to look at the tape and see what they can do to stop us," Florida center Max Garcia said, via Teresa M. Walker of the Fresno Bee. "But ... as an offensive line we're going to go out there and just keep blocking people and finishing people to the ground."

The Gators ran the ball 60 times for 418 yards against the Georgia Bulldogs during last Saturday's 38-20 upset in Athens. Freshman quarterback Treon Harris, on the other hand, attempted just six passes on the day. He completed three for 27 yards.

Looking at the tape this week, Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason knows what his team has to do.

"I think they're going to throw the ball more than six times if we can slow down the run game," Mason said.

If not, the Florida Gators could add another win to embattled head coach Will Muschamp's case for job retention going into the offseason.
