Pay attention to the battle at the line of scrimmage when the Florida Gators take on the Arkansas Razorbacks this upcoming weekend. Florida has been the best team in the nation this year at stopping the run, allowing a mere 53.50 yards per game. On the other hand, the Arkansas Razorbacks boast a star-studded backfield and a rushing attack ranked 21st in the country. Something will have to give.
In preparing for the challenge, Florida Gators defensive tackle Damien Jacobs has watched a lot of tape of the Razorbacks. His impression? Well…
They’re real physical. I think they’re a little chippy. They’re a little dirty. So we’re going to have to be ready for it all this week.
I just see, from film, a lot of stuff after the play, especially with the center, No. 64. He’s a good athlete after the play. He makes you want to do something to him. We’re going to have to try to keep our temper and keep cool on that (USA Today Sports).
With Dominique Easley out for the season, the Gators could have a tough time handling the powerful rushing attack of the Razorbacks. The game will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on ESPN2.
