No pressure for the Gators

What’s the pressure like for Florida as the Gators try to carve out their place among the greatest college football teams of all-time?
Senior receiver Riley Cooper said the only pressure the players feel is what they put on themselves.
“We don’t really feel the pressure, but we definitely put pressure on ourselves every week to prepare hard no matter who we’re playing and take it week by week,” Cooper said. “If you do that, trying to beat that team that particular week, then good things are going to happen.
“We don’t look at it as trying to win another national championship. We look at it as trying to win that week.”
Florida enters the Tennessee game having won 12 straight games. The Gators are looking for their first 13-game winning streak in school history.
