Florida Using 2011 Houston Film To Prepare For Texas A&M

In most SEC games, teams know each other intimately, with players knowing many of their opponents from their high school days while coaches have years of game tape between the two schools to break down.

That won't be the case for the Florida Gators this Saturday, as they travel to College Station to play the Texas A&M Aggies in A&M's first game as an SEC team.

Not only was Texas A&M's opening-week game cancelled due to Hurricane Isaac, but the Aggies are breaking in an entirely new coaching staff after hiring Kevin Sumlin from Houston in the off-season.

As a result, while Florida has been watching a lot of Cougars game tape from Conference USA last year, they'll have to be ready for anything on Saturday. That's what Gators linebacker Jonathan Bostic said in talking with reporters earlier in the week:

"We don’t really have too much film on them and we don’t know what they could come out in," Bostic said. "We are expecting them to be a spread, no huddle team, but they could come out in the I-formation and run the ball down our throat."

The good news is that Will Muschamp does have experience with most of the Aggies players, from his days as a defensive coordinator at Texas.
