While defenses are still a work in progress around the Southeastern Conference, they still rank as some of the best in college football.
Florida leads the nation with 16 sacks, including 10 in the opener against rival Miami. Missouri, Tennessee and Georgia combined to shut out overmatched opponents 150-0 last weekend, helpful tuneups toward taking on schools their own size this week.
The Gators rank 33rd at 300.7 yards. Not bad considering they have played without cornerback CJ Henderson and lost defensive end Jabari Zuniga, both with ankle injuries.
“We knew what we wanted to accomplish coming into the year,” linebacker Jonathan Greenard said, crediting defensive line coach David Turner. “We wanted to establish ourselves as the No. 1 defensive line in the SEC.

It’s also working at Missouri, which ranks fourth nationally in FBS total defense (218 yards allowed per game) to lead a trio of SEC teams in the top 20 nationally — Georgia is tied for ninth and Texas A&M is 18th
