College football scouting report: Florida at Vanderbilt, 12:20 p.m. Saturday, Ch. 38, 620-AM

A week after ending its three-game losing streak by beating Georgia in overtime, Florida (5-3, 3-3 SEC) takes its revamped offense on the road for what it hopes will be a chance to fine-tune some of its changes before facing South Carolina next week. Vanderbilt (2-6, 1-4) has lost three in a row overall and 19 in a row to Florida dating to 1989.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR …

Lots of quarterbacks. The Gators are using two, junior John Brantley and freshman Trey Burton. And sophomore Jordan Reed, left, a converted tight end, is expected to get snaps in the wildcat. Vandy will use junior Larry Smith and senior Jared Funk. But the Commodores will be without all-everything Warren Norman, who dislocated his right wrist last week. Rushing, he leads the team in yards (459) and touchdowns (four). He also averages 25.4 yards on kickoff returns and is fourth with 11 catches.
