Video: ESPN analyst Kevin Weidl analyzes UF's defense
Florida’s defense has been dominant through the first three games of the 2016 season.
The Gators have allowed less than five points-per-game (4.67) during the two-game non-conference slate and Kentucky games. To date, Florida’s has allowed 129.7 yards a game — which is No. 1 in the entire country. The unit has also accrued 16 sacks on the year — which leads the SEC.
Lastly, Florida has the nation’s top-ranked scoring defense and the No. 2 passing defense. Suffice it to say, but they’ve been downright suffocating.
ESPN analyst Kevin Weidl spoke about the talent on the Florida defense, and made a very favorable comparison to the 2013 Florida State defensive group. If one remembers, the Seminoles won the National Title that year.
As Weidl describes, he firmly believes the Gators have a defense good enough to make a National Championship run…assuming the offense is up to snuff.
