Gators OC Brent Pease has sparked the Florida offense

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Florida Gators offensive coordinator Brent Paese has been part of the reason the Florida offense has rebounded so well this season.

Florida Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease has helped spark the Gators to a 4-0 record to start the season. An improved offensive line has also helped this offensive rebound, helping the team average 224.5 yards per game on the ground this season, 26th in the nation.

Paese talked about the offense's balance with Hays Carlyon of The Florida Times-Union:

"Our identity is to be physical, balanced and able to run the ball. Reaching a goal of 200 [rushing] yards per week is something we need to do to help make everything else work. I think our identity has been established."

Another piece of the puzzle that has helped has been quarterback Jeff Driskel, who has thrown for 698 yards with four touchdowns and an interception. Whats even more encouraging, is that this offense has put up these numbers against stronger competition.

In 2011, the Gators played the Florida Atlantic Owls, the UAB Blazers, the Tennesee Volunteers and the Kentucky Wildcats all at home. While the Gators did host the Wildcats again this season and opened with the Bowling Green Falcons, they defeated both the Volunteers and the Texas A&M Aggies on the road.

The Gators are on a bye week before hosting the LSU Tigers on Oct. 6.
