College football Countdown: No. 5 Florida

Our confidence level in this pick: Iffy. The Gators have enough talent to beat any team on the schedule, but there are too many questions that could swing the season either way. Florida is just about a lock to reach the SEC championship game for the third straight year, and the possibility of more depends on two critical areas on the defense: Can one or two ends create pressure (maybe even Powell), and does redshirt freshman MLB (and former mega recruit) Jelani Jenkins make an impact and continue the stout play of the past from the position (Spikes, Brandon Siler, Channing Crowder)?
