No. 4 Gators Remember Scare From Vandy Last Season

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The fourth-ranked Florida Gators remember only too well how close Vanderbilt came to knocking them off last season in The Swamp.

Florida pulled out a 26-21 win last November, and Gators cornerback Jaylen Watkins said Vanderbilt (2-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) is a sneaky good team. He said the Gators know they have to play well or something bad will happen.

Overlooking a program the Gators (5-0, 4-0) have beaten 21 straight games would be understandable, especially with Florida hosting No. 3 South Carolina on October 20 followed by the annual showdown in Jacksonville with No. 14 Georgia.

It's a three-game stretch that could put the Gators atop the SEC East on the road back to Atlanta for the conference championship.
