We are four days from Alabama versus Florida, and one member of the Gators has sent a message to the Crimson Tide.

Brenton Cox Jr., a junior outside linebacker, wants to seize the moment at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

He led Florida’s defense in tackles for loss (9.5) and quarterback hurries (18) in 2020 while posting four sacks. The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder is a native Georgian who lost to the Tide in last year’s Southeastern Conference Championship Game. Despite the loss of offensive talent to the National Football League, Cox had one thing to say to Alabama during the Gators’ media availability.

According to Edgar Thomas, Cox said the biggest question is are they [Alabama] ready?
