      Brenton Cox up first.

      Said the team’s focus is playing hard and playing for each other.

      He added that the team wants to play a bit of spoiler.

      For him personally, he says he wants to play the best game of his career, which is how he wants to play every week.

      On UGA’s 22.5 spread.

      Said that the team is focused on minimizing UGA’s scoring as much as possible.

      On the UF-UGA rivalry, Cox said that there’s obvious intensity, but it’s just another SEC game.

      He said it’ll be a show on both sides

      On the defensive struggles: said it’s extremely difficult considering it’s usually only one guy out of place.

      Said the only thing the team can do is get better every week.

      He added that although most of his family is UGA fans, they do cheer for Florida. However, he isn’t sure if they’re joking about it or not.

      On the year sitting out after transferring:

      Said it gave him time to recover and gave him time to watch Jon Greenard.

      He jokingly said that he hates that players can play immediately. In all seriousness, he isn’t sure why that rule came in when it did, but it is what it is

      A Georgia native and former UGA player, Cox said he wasn’t fully aware of how deep the rivalry went. Said it was mostly due to how locked in he was for UGA. It didn’t hit him until he enrolled at UGA and then hit harder when he transferred.

      Cox is done. Austin Barber next

      On facing UGAs run defense.

      Barber says it’s up to their offense on how successful they are running the ball. They’ve played tough defenses all year and it’s up to their discipline and technique

      On the OL being a strength this season: says it comes down to every buying in, which is a difference from the past few seasons.

      On his motivation for this week:

      Said if he can block them, he can block anybody. That comes from blocking Brenton Cox every day.
