The Florida Gators had a disappointing 2013 season, finishing 4-8 (3-5). In the offseason, quarterback Tyler Murphy transferred to Boston College and cornerbacks Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson both left early for the NFL.

Florida does return leading rusher Mack Brown, wide receiver Quinton Dunbar and star cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, a member of SI.com's preseason All-American team, but the Gators' success could come down to whether new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper can revitalize the team's attack.
