Even with seniors Marcus Gilbert and Maurice Hurt playing tackle, Florida’s line struggled. Meyer said he expects to get Johnson back and there’s a “good chance” Nixon could play. Backup left tackle MattPatchan (wrist) won’t play.
Meyer said he was troubled by the lack of rotation at wide receiver. Junior Deonte Thompson and senior Carl Moore were in on every offensive play and redshirt freshman Andre Debose, who Meyer constantly praised this offseason, never saw the field. Freshman receiver Quinton Dunbar saw limited action, while redshirt freshman Stephen Alli played on special teams.
