Kirk Herbstreit praises Florida defense in ranking of top players from Week 6
The Florida Gators picked up a huge win in The Swamp on Saturday afternoon, beating then-No. 7 Auburn 24-13.
The defense was especially good, holding the Tigers to 145 passing yards, 124 rushing yards and forcing 4 turnovers. The Tigers also were held to only 2 third-down conversions on 14 attempts.
