Florida Gators to welcome UAB back to college football with nonconference game in 2017

Set to return to college football in 2017 following a two-year absence, the UAB Blazers announced Thursday that they will travel to Gainesville, Florida, to face the Florida Gators in nonconference action as part of their return schedule on Saturday, Nov. 18.

A Florida spokesman confirmed this scheduling agreement to OnlyGators.com on Thursday.

The Gators to this point have not announced their entire nonconference slate for 2017 outside of a neutral-site contest against the Michigan Wolverines that is scheduled to open the season on Saturday, Sept. 2 in Arlington, Texas. Florida has its annual in-state rivalry showdown with the Florida State Seminoles set for Nov. 25 but also has one more slot to fill.

Quick hits: Florida Gators offense embarrasses as Florida State nearly shuts out UF 27-2

The No. 12 Florida Gators (10-2) put together another stellar defensive effort, but their embarrassing offense fell well short of effective as the No. 13 Florida State Seminoles (10-2) nearly shut out the hosts 27-2 on Saturday night at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida.

In front of a record crowd, the Gators offense was unable to muster a single point with Florida only scoring on a fourth-quarter safety created off a forced fumble by freshman defensive end CeCe Jefferson. Though UF avoided its first shutout since 1988, that was about the only positive to take away from the affair.

Florida Gators release updated 12-man injury report ahead of Florida State game

With no additional media availabilities scheduled before the No. 12 Florida Gators host the No. 13 Florida State Seminoles on Saturday in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the Gators provided a late-Wednesday injury update for the 12 players who could potentially miss the rivalry game.

Florida listed senior starting defensive linemen Jonathan Bullard (knee) and Alex McCalister (foot) as “doubtful” for the game, giving them a 25 percent chance of stepping foot on the field Saturday. Joining them with that designation was redshirt freshman DL Taven Bryan (foot), who plays a large number of snaps as a reserve.

Snell’s Slant: Jim McElwain needs to take a hard look at the Florida Gators offense

By Shannon Snell – OnlyGators.com Featured Columnist

Just two weeks ago, I had no doubt in my mind that the Florida Gators would handily beat both Vanderbilt and Florida Atlantic. But I had no clue that either game would have been so close or so ugly to watch. I knew at some point during this football season that Florida would eventually struggle.

I mean, this is Jim McElwain first year as a head coach in the SEC, and he inherited a program that was short on explosive playmakers and leadership. That’s recipe for disaster. The thing is … the Gators started the season white hot behind the arm of unknown quarterback Will Grier and a bunch of young inexperienced guys in the skilled positions. For all it’s worth, everyone knew the defense – led by Jonathan Bullard and Vernon Hargreaves III – would be good, but it’s exceeded expectations.

But then something happened. Grier was suspended, injuries have started piling up, and this team doesn’t resemble anything near what I it was a month ago.

Starters Jon Bullard, Alex McCalister lead long Florida Gators injury list for Florida State

If you believe most of the names on head coach Jim McElwain‘s injury list will not play against Florida State on Saturday, the Florida Gators are in serious trouble.

McElwain announced Monday that starting Rush defensive end redshirt junior Alex McCalister (foot) and his backup, redshirt sophomore Jordan Sherit, will both miss the game … but he did not stop there.
