Florida's Defense Was Historically Bad On Saturday

On the surface, Florida had a pretty good opening weekend. A 2-score victory on the road in the SEC is nothing to scoff at. Kyle Trask looked great at QB:

And so did tight end Kyle Pitts:

Florida has an offense that has the capability of going up against anybody this year. That's great news for the Gators!

However, that defense? YIKES! Take a look at these stats:

This performance was actually historically bad:

It's the first game of a weird season and I'm sure Florida will be able to figure it out, but it's not like Ole Miss has some revolutionary offense. The good news for Florida is they do not have to face anybody on their schedule with an elite offense:

-South Carolina

-A&M (only 17 points against Vandy)

-LSU (34 vs. Miss St., so this would be a test)

-Mizzou

-Georgia (Will have to see how JT does at QB)

-Arkansas

-Vandy

-Kentucky

-Tennessee

Florida avoiding the likes of Alabama and Mississippi State at this point in the season is massive for their hopes to get to Atlanta for the SEC Championship. 

If I were a Florida fan, I wouldn't be that nervous. This Florida defense is talented and has a decent amount of time to figure it out. LSU's defense struggled at points last year (specifically against Ole Miss) and still put it all together. Florida is still a championship contender. Saturday just wasn't the perfect start.
