Florida Gators Ready for Redemption at Alabama

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Not long after Alabama gouged Florida
in last year's Southeastern Conference championship game, the
Gators starting working on ways to better stop the run.
They came up with the "Heavy Package," a 5-2 defensive scheme
that puts an extra defensive lineman on the field and stacks the
line of scrimmage.
It worked to perfection two weeks ago at Tennessee, as Florida
held Tauren Poole to 23 yards on 10 carries. The real test comes
Saturday night when the seventh-ranked Gators travel to top-ranked
Alabama and face Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram and backup Trent
Richardson.
Florida coach Urban Meyer calls this a "completely different
challenge."
Ingram ran for 113 yards and three touchdowns against Florida in
December. Richardson added 80 yards.
