The Storylines

• The Gators are now 3-1 following non-consecutive losses under Mullen, with two of those wins coming this season (38-27 at South Carolina) after their loss at then-No. 5 LSU and 56-0 vs. Vanderbilt after their loss to then-No. 8 Georgia.

• Florida was ranked No. 10 in the initial College Football Playoff Rankings, but fell to No. 11 this week -- last year UF debuted at No. 11 and eventually finished the regular season at No. 10, earning a Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl berth.

• The Gators have been a top-10 team in 11 of the last 13 Associated Press Top 25 Polls (though their nine-poll streak -- their longest stretch since a run of 12 consecutive top-10 rankings from Week 5 of 2012 (Sept. 30) through the 2013 preseason rankings -- ended this week). From 2013-17, UF was in the top 10 just five times.

• UF ranks 25th nationally in passing offense (288.5 yards per game), which is the first time in at least a decade it has thrown the ball that consistently. UF’s highest national finish in passing offense since the start of 2010 is 79th (in 2016), and it finished outside the top 100 in four of the nine seasons from 2010-18. UF finished 41st nationally in 2009.

• “There’s an awful lot to still play for. A lot of football left to go play. This is when we see if we have character as a team. That’s what is ahead of us as a team.” --Dan Mullen following loss to No. 8 Georgia.

• Florida can still post a second straight 10-win season for the first time since posting 13 wins in both 2008 -- Mullen’s final year as offensive coordinator -- and 2009.

• The Gators have a chance to finish in the top 10 of the final Associated Press Top 25 Poll in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2008 (No. 1) and 2009 (No. 3).

• UF can also win six SEC games for the first time since 2016, when it went 6-2 and made the SEC Championship Game.

• Florida is still in a hunt for a second consecutive “New Year’s Six” bowl berth. The Gators can make consecutive marquee bowl appearances for the first time since 2008 (BCS National Championship Game) and 2009 (Sugar Bowl). Before last season’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl berth, UF made just one marquee bowl appearance from 2010-17 (a 33-23 loss to No. 21 Louisville in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2, 2013).

• Florida can beat in-state rival Florida State in consecutive seasons for the first time since ripping off a six-game winning streak against the Seminoles from 2004-09. It can also finish with wins over Miami and Florida State for the first time since 2008, when it beat Miami, 26-3 in Gainesville, and topped Florida State, 45-15 in Tallahassee.

• Florida can finish undefeated at home for the 14th time since 1990 and just the third time since the start of 2010 (7-0 in 2012; 5-0 in 2016).
