First half: The Gators had no running game, which was a problem. In reality, they didn’t have enough plays to gain any kind of momentum. Florida had only four possessions in the half, and penalties hurt half of them.
Second half: Kyle Trask had an excellent fourth quarter when Florida was trying to fight its way back into the game. The Gator offense struggled in the third quarter when it barely had the ball.
For the game: Well, 21 rushing yards isn’t going to cut it in a game like this. The Gators continue to look more like Washington State than anything and eventually you’re going to make a mistake.
First half: While Florida did a good job of stopping the run early, Jake Fromm was able to make the Gators pay in the passing game. Third downs were a bit of a joke with no pressure on Fromm.
Second half: Florida did some good things, but allowing Georgia the final third-down conversion kind of summed up the way the defense played. The secondary was porous and the pass rush without merit.
For the game: Florida’s secondary hasn’t played well since the Auburn game. Getting the defensive ends back helped the defense, but it wasn’t the answer. To give up 12-of-18 third down conversions is embarrassing.
SPECIAL TEAMS D
First half: Evan McPherson scored Florida’s only points and Tommy Townsend did a good job on his two punts. Florida didn’t do a great job covering the last kickoff of the half that set up the Georgia field-goal drive.
Second half: A short punt by Townsend and not much else to show for the second half. Not sure what the goal was on the final kickoff of the game, but it certainly did not work.
For the game: Florida has two really good kickers and has put an emphasis on special teams under Dan Mullen. But there hasn’t been a whole lot special. The Gators could have used a big play from the kicking game
As Mullen said, nobody clinched the SEC East on Saturday night, but one team got a lot closer. That’s three straight losses against the Bulldogs and if Florida is going to be an elite team, the Gators have to figure this game out.
