Gators offense ready to go more up-tempo

Offensive coordinator Brent Pease is considering changes to make the Gators' offense more effective.

With the Florida Gators struggling to generate much offense, the team will try a more up-tempo approach to change things up. Robbie Andreu of the Gainesville Sun reports that Gators have tried many tweaks and strategies, and they like the idea of going no-huddle.

The no-huddle is potentially advantageous because it can often confuse opposing defenses. The Gators generate only 332.8 total yards of offense per game, which is fourth-worst in the SEC. Although the team is 8-1, the offensive struggles have made some wins very close.

The possible disadvantage is a three-and-out in which the offense goes no-huddle. In that case, the Gators defense will have received very little rest from their previous series. Defense has been the key for Florida this season, so the team is certainly wary of changing too much.

Still, the no-huddle helped Florida generate just enough offense to edge out a 14-7 victory over Missouri. The Gators may experiment more with an up-tempo offense this weekend against Louisiana-Lafayette.
