The Gators (6-0, 4-0 SEC) face their third consecutive SEC West opponent a week after escaping with a three-point win over Arkansas at home. The Bulldogs' Anthony Dixon, right, is third in the SEC in rushing at 116 yards per game while Florida is second in the league in rushing defense, allowing 95 per game. Florida spent significant time working on ball security this week after losing four fumbles against Arkansas. Florida has lost four in a row in Starkville since a 36-22 win in 1985.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR ...
This is the first time Florida coach Urban Meyer has faced a former assistant, and even he admitted he's not 100 percent sure what to expect. Dan Mullen (2-4, 1-2) is one year removed from being the Gators' offensive coordinator, so he knows what they like to do - and what frustrates them. As a result, Meyer said Florida will change its signals and, in some instances, its way of thinking against the Bulldogs.
