First half: The Gators were miserable in the first quarter, but did better in the second to finish with 147 yards and eight first downs.
Second half: Florida kept shooting itself in the foot whether it was turnovers or key penalties that prevented it from finishing drives.
The game: The offense has been a concern throughout the season and it came back to haunt Florida on Saturday.
First half: The defense struggled to contain Todd Gurley, who rushed for 79 yards in the first half. But the Gators did intercept three passes.
Second half: There was really only one play — the 45-yard touchdown pass — that cost Florida’s defense
For the game: The Gator defense kept a team that committed six turnovers in the game.
Special teams C
First half: Gators did a good job of covering kickoffs and Caleb Sturgis was perfect on his two field goal tries.
Second half: Caleb Sturgis’ 50-yard field goal looked like it was going to be huge, but the special teams really didn’t do much.
For the game: Special teams was only a factor in field goals and coverage. Other than that, not much.
Florida’s weaknesses came up in a big way, and they still had a chance before Jordan Reed’s fumble. Time to regroup.
