You might have seen this one coming, but there’s no denying that Brenton Cox has some extra motivation to play in this game compared to some of his fellow Florida teammates.
You know the story. Cox was a 5-star recruit who committed to the Dawgs at the end of 2017. He saw playing time in his freshman year, but his first start didn’t come until the Sugar Bowl against Texas.
He ultimately left Georgia in 2019 and would transfer to Florida later that year. He started in every game since he left and has registered 59 total tackles in his Gator career.
Never one to hide his feelings, Cox made headlines earlier this year when he seemed to call out Alabama about whether or not they were ready for their upcoming game against the Gators.
He ended up having a decent game against the Tide, racking up four tackles, a sack, and had a pass breakup.
Cox is very athletic on the defensive line, as Kirby Smart and the rest of the Bulldogs know. Keeping him at bay will be another task for the offensive line, but it’s one they can handle.
Defensively, Florida will try to play a near-perfect game, but it’ll all depend on if this offensive line and Georgia offense can do their thing.
The Dawgs have playmakers and can make explosive plays at almost any time, just like the Gators, but at the same time, the Florida offense has some playmakers that can test the mighty Georgia defense.
