After getting back on the winning side last week, the Florida Gators will look to continue their positive momentum ahead of the bye week when they visit the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday. While Florida absolutely dominated this meeting last season, South Carolina is a quality program that continues to look up in Year 2 under head coach Shane Beamer.

Gators head coach Billy Napier is hoping the same can be said about his program, but there’s a lot working against Florida this week — namely, it’s problems on the road and its injury report.

While the Gators are getting a few key names back, two major offensive starters remain out of action. The defense and special teams bring back the same depth chart from last week, while there is one key change on offense that was made obvious last week against Vanderbilt.

Let’s take a look at the depth chart ahead of Florida’s big road game.
