College Football Week 5 Vanderbilt vs. Florida Predictions 9/30/17

The Gators redshirt junior quarterback had completed 7-of-11 passes for 64 yards and was replaced by redshirt freshman quarterback Feleipe Franks following the injury.

Wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland sustained a high ankle sprain in the fourth quarter against Vanderbilt last Saturday and is expected to miss Saturday's game, UF coach Jim McElwain said Monday.

Taggart said Herbert will be "out for a while" but added that he "absolutely" expects him to return later this season. "I just feel frightful for him, and yet the guys rallied behind Feleipe". In the last three games, Cleveland had receptions of 45, 49, 50 and 63 yards.

"He's obviously been a guy on the deep stuff", McElwain said.

A week after being humiliated by top-ranked Alabama, Vanderbilt looked to prove it's 3-0 start to the season was legit and that it is, indeed, a threat in the SEC East. A Jacqui Armer kill gave the Tigers a 24-23 lead but the Gators scored three straight points to claim the set 26-24 and take a 2-0 lead.

The Commodores rushed 20 times for 46 yards, which was not a noticeable improvement over previous games. "Defensively, you've got to get off the field".

Knecht addressed those concerns at his news conference, saying the seriousness of the crime dictated why the chase continued. Later, the same suspect was pulled over at a police check stop on Wayne Gretzky Drive, this time driving the U-Haul.

The catch was part of a scoring drive to put the Gators up 31-17.

WHAT IT MEANS: Del Rio knew he was hurt as soon as he dropped to the ground on a hit from Vanderbilt defensive lineman Dare Odeyingbo.

Florida Gators running back Lamical Perine (22) scores a second quarter touchdown during the Florida Gators take on Vanderbilt. We attacked them exactly the way we needed to, but I just don't think we did it consistently enough.

The most telling sequence came with just over 2:00 to play and Vandy trailing by just seven.

Franks started Florida's first three games but lost his job when Del Rio - the son of Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio - rallied the Gators to a victory over Kentucky last Saturday.

A game that was tied at 14 at halftime began turning the Wildcats' way when Tristan Yeomans recovered a muffed punt at Eastern Michigan's 42 and led to Austin MacGinnis' 39-yard field goal.
