Gators Looking Ahead to Opener with Toledo

Gainesville, FL---For Florida, Alabama and Auburn it's just four more days before their season openers. The Seminoles will wait until next Monday to start.

The Gators will open at home against Toledo, a team out of the MAC that was 9-4 last year. Maybe not the toughest opener in the world but the Gators are certainly anxious to get out there and prove they belong among the game's elite.

In particular says Jeff Driskel, to get the lingering taste of that ugly Sugar Bowl loss to Lousville out of their mouths.

"You know after a great year, we went out and got dominated. In all aspects, and we've carried that throughout the whole off season. We've heard about it all the time, you're only as good as your last game. So that's the last time we've been on the field so we've been really eager to show that that's not us, we're a lot better than the way we played that day."

That game in the Swamp Saturday set for just after noon eastern, so it's really going to feel like a swamp no doubt! Florida favored by 23.
