According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Florida's odds have making the playoffs are currently 6/1 and their odds of missing the postseason altogether are 1/10. The Gators are also long shots to win the 2014-15 FBS Championship at 40/1, which gives them the same odds as Michigan, Ole Miss, Notre Dame and Texas.

The Gators will return six starters on offense, including running back Kelvin Taylor, wideout Quinton Dunbar and tight end Clay Burton. Three starters along the offensive line also return, including left tackle D.J. Humphries, left guard Tyler Moore and center Max Garcia. Quarterback Jeff Driskel also returns after a broken leg ended his 2013 season. He should be a better fit in the team's new spread offense.

On defense the Gators will bring back the starting defensive line of Dante Fowler Jr., Leon Orr, Darious Cummings and Jonathan Bullard. Two of the starting three linebackers from a year ago are also back, including Antonio Morrison and Michael Taylor. The good news in the secondary is that cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III returns. The bad news is that the other three positions in the secondary will feature new faces.

After finishing in the bottom 20 nationally in total offense in each of the past three years, Florida has to become more efficient on offense. Gone is the power-rushing attack that the Gators have featured over the years and in is a new spread passing game. In a make-or-break year for coach Will Muschamp, Driskel needs to play lights out if Florida is going to make the playoffs in 2014.
