Key stat for Florida’s defense: Limit QB E.J. Manuel's deep throws
Last season against Florida, E.J. Manuel did not complete any of his three passes thrown 20 yards or longer. It was one of three games last season in which Manuel did not have any completions on such passes.
This season he's completed at least four passes thrown 20 yards or longer to four different players (Kenny Shaw, Kelvin Benjamin, Rashad Greene, Rodney Smith), with all four catching at least one touchdown.
Florida has allowed 10 plays that have gained 25 yards or more, four fewer than any other FBS team. and the Gators are the only FBS team that has not allowed a rush that gained 25 yards or more.
