The Storylines

• Saturday marks the first top-10 matchup in The Swamp since No. 3 Florida thumped No. 9 South Carolina, 44-11, on Oct. 20, 2012. It is the first top-10 matchup between two undefeated teams in The Swamp since No. 10 Florida beat No. 4 LSU, 14-6, on Oct. 6, 2012. The Gators boast an all-time record of 12-5 in top-10 matchups at home.

• Florida has beaten seven of the last nine top-10 teams to come into The Swamp -- which is a stretch that started with a 16-7 win over No. 5 Tennnessee on Sept. 17, 2005, and was extended with last year’s 27-19 win over No. 5 LSU (Oct. 6).

• UF’s nine-game winning streak is its longest since winning 22 in a row in 2008 (last 10 games) and 2009 (first 12). It is also the fourth-longest active streak in the FBS, behind Clemson (19), Ohio State (11), and Appalachian State (10).

• Florida has been a top-10 team in seven of the last eight AP Polls, which is its most consistent stretch since a span of 12 consecutive top-10 rankings from Week 5 of 2012 (Sept. 30) through the 2013 preseason rankings. From Week 1 of 2013 (Sept. 3) through the final ranking of the 2017 season, Florida appeared in the top 10 just four times.

• The Gators are off to their first 5-0 start since 2015, and they’re seeking a second straight 10-win season for the first time since posting 13 wins in both 2008 -- head coach Dan Mullen’s final year as offensive coordinator -- and 2009.

• UF is making its 41st appearance on College GameDay (which includes the 2008 Orange & Blue Game), and it is 25-14 in the 39 previous games the show traveled to. GameDay’s last trip to Gainesville was Oct. 20, 2012 (see top note).
