GATOR BOWL

Florida, a team which defends magnificently, meets a Mississippi team which does everything pretty well but may not score enough this time
December 22, 1958

FLORIDA
A great defense makes Florida hard to beat, especially for a team which must move mainly on the ground. The Florida line ranks with the best in the nation; it held LSU to a measly 89 yards rushing. Pass defense is a bit weak; Florida allows the short pass to cut off the long one. The Florida offense, operated by Quarterback JIMMY DUNN, suffers from a lack of top-notch halfbacks. Dunn, as a result, has a tendency to keep the ball on his option plays. BOB MILBY, a sophomore fullback, is the best runner on the team, but he is not a breakaway threat. Team runs from straight T, uses the belly series effectively. Florida lacks Mississippi's team speed and hasn't nearly the Ole Miss backfield strength. VEL HECKMAN, a husky tackle who is great on defense, and DON FLEMING, a tough end who covers well outside, key the well-manned Florida line. Dunn and JOE GREEN provide the Gators with some fine punting.
