    P Johnny Townsend was named to the Sports Illustrated All-American Team and the All-SEC first team.
    • Townsend reliably flipped the field with the second-best average in the country at 47.5 yards per punt. His 3,043 yards ranked him #12 in the nation.
    K Eddy Pineiro was named second team All-SEC.
    • Eddy led the nation by making 94.4% of his field goals. He was 2-2 in field goals 50 yards or greater, which tied him for 6th place in the country, and 4-5 between 40 and 50 yards, which tied him for 27th place.
    RB Malik Davis was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team.
    • Davis rushed for 526 yards in just seven games before sustaining a season-ending knee injury. He averaged 6.7 yards per carry, which ranked sixth nationally among first-year freshmen, and he became the first Florida true freshman to rush for more than 100 yards and 2 touchdowns in a game since Jeff Demps in 2008. He was on pace to become the first Florida first-year freshman to rush for 1,000 yards since Emmitt Smith in 1987.
    CB Marco Wilson was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team.
    • Wilson led Florida with 10 pass break-ups, the third-most nationally among first-year freshmen and tied for third overall among all SEC players.
    CB C.J. Henderson was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team.
    • Henderson was also an AP All-SEC second-team selection after recording 4 interceptions and returning 2 for touchdowns. He became the only true freshman in program history to return an interception for touchdown in consecutive games, doing so in the first two games of his collegiate career. For that matter, he’s the only player in school history to accomplish the feat according to records dating back to 1965. He also tallied 22 tackles and 4 pass break-ups.
    The following players also made second team All-SEC:
    • OT Martez Ivey
    • CB Duke Dawson
    • DT Taven Bryan
