The Gators are undefeated, but a murderous schedule against three Top 10 teams looms large.

The Florida Gators have survived two intense conference road trips to Texas A&M and longtime rival Tennessee, and fresh from beating down Kentucky on Saturday, the 4-0 No. 11 team in the country enters an early bye week with a home date against LSU looming on October 6.

Head coach Will Muschamp isn't impressed, especially with a four game run featuring the No. 3 Tigers, No. 6 South Carolina and No. 5 Georgia on in October. LSU and the Gamecocks will travel to Gainesville, giving UF homefield advantage before they meet the Dawgs in Jacksonville on Oct. 27, (quote courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel)

"I'm excited about where we are," he said Sunday during his weekly TV show. "But let's be a realist. We have a lot of work to do."

One key injury for the Gators entering the bye -- Trey Burton, who missed the Kentucky game with back spasms and will be monitored throughout the next two weeks of practice.
