LAST SEA­SON 9-4, 6-2 (First in SEC East) COACH Jim McEl­wain (19-8 in two sea­sons at Florida, 41-24 in five sea­sons over­all).

RETURNING STARTERS (18): Of­fense 9, De­fense 6, Spe­cialty 3

KEY RETURNING PLAY­ERS SS Mar­cel Har­ris, CB Duke Daw­son, DE Cece Jef­fer­son, RB Jor­dan Scar­lett, OT Martez Ivey, PK Ed­die Piniero, P Johnny Townsend.

SEC TI­TLE SCENARIO The Ga­tors should con­tinue to be strong on de­fense and have an ex­pe­ri­enced of­fen­sive line and play-mak­ing run­ning backs and re­ceivers, but it’s hard to see them win­ning the con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship if they don’t get im­proved play at quar­ter­back. They need ei­ther grad­u­ate trans­fer quar­ter­back Ma­lik Zaire to lead the of­fense or for red­shirt fresh­men Feleipe Franks or Kyle Trask to emerge as a starter.
