Thursday September 27, 2012 UF volleyball hits road, Pease on LSU, Dunbar's role, plus more tidbits

Updated: 12:21pm, September 27

The Gators volleyball team is off on a two-game road swing to South Carolina (Friday, 7 p.m.) and Mississippi State (Sunday, 1:30 p.m.) this weekend.

I’m working on a story about Florida sophomore defensive specialist Holly Pole, who is a walk-on and has earned a starting job in her second season. Check out for more on Pole later today.
