Gators Want To Lessen Penalties Vs. Texas A&M

The Florida Gators committed 14 penalties in their season-opening win against Bowling Green, but they know they can't let that happen again if they hope to earn a road victory over Texas A&M on Saturday. The Aggies are famous for having one of the loudest and most intense crowds in the country, with their fans embracing the "12th man" mantra.

Players and coaches, including offensive coordinator Brent Pease, talked on Wednesday about working towards limiting penalties, from alligator.org:

"We’ve got to understand to be cleaner with their hands or cleaner with their blocks and do that," Pease said. "We’ll get better at those. You go back and look at it. I don’t think the management of things or time (are) issues. I don’t see us having any of that. We had a good tempo and all of that."

The Gators averaged 7.7 penalties a game last season. The 14 on Saturday were the most since Florida amassed 16 penalties against Tennessee in the SEC-opener a season ago.
