If No. 1-ranked Florida survives against Arkansas, the Gators will have Charlie Strong and that defense to thank.

Granted, Arkansas' Dennis Johnson has had a big game running the football. But the true measure of a defense is how it responds to adversity.

Time and time again Saturday, Florida's defense has come onto the field with its back to the goal line or with Arkansas having a short field to work with and kept the Hogs out of the end zone.
