Weekend watch: Florida needs Demps to have a shot at the Tide

1. Jeff Demps, Florida: Demps is the best offensive weapon Florida has. He averages 6.9 yards per carry and is averaging 32.5 yards per kick return. He has also caught 11 passes for 61 yards. Any team that hopes to beat Alabama is going to have to do it with big plays. You are not going to grind it out against that defense. Demps bruised his left foot at Tennessee on Sept. 18 and wore a protective boot until Wednesday. He had limited practice yesterday and is expected to practice today. Florida needs Demps to stretch the defense if the Gators hope to have a shot at the nation’s No. 1 team on the road.
