The Gator football team’s offensive line has been one of the units of the team that has struggled so far in the season. Part of it is the inexperience, as well as, Mullen and his staff not getting a lot of their recruits in to play on the line. Since week zero, you can see the improvement on the line with each week. But has it been enough to face a strong Auburn defense?
The Run Game
The Gators have three very talented running back in Lamical Perine, Malik Davis and Dameon Pierce. However, the team is only rushing for 141.4 yards a game.
Gators offensive line coach, John Hevesy says that he thinks his O-Line has shown that they are starting to mesh well and will be able to make the necessary holds for their RB’s.
Getting Ready for Auburn
Hevesy knows that playing Auburn will be a test for the Gators.
Hevesy also mentioned that he think the Tigers will be trying to run the ball heavy against the Gators. The Tigers are averaging 251 rushing yards a game.
Gator offensive linemen, Stone Forsythe, said that in order to be successful against the Tigers, the O-line needs to focus on the basics.
The Gators O-line will take on the Tiger D-line on Oct. 5 at 3:30 p.m.
