Florida gives up first TD at home against an SEC opponent this season

Will Muschamp AP

Last week, Notre Dame gave up its first rushing touchdown of the season against Oklahoma, but went on to win 30-13. Given that recent history, Florida should have expected a win today over Missouri after giving up its first touchdown against an SEC opponent at home in 2012 — a 1-yard run by Kendial Lawrence.

It was a cool streak while it lasted.

The Gators did get the win  — 14-7 to be exact — but Will Muschamp‘s group is not one for aesthetics, it seems.

The Gators need to break out of this offensive slump. Jeff Driskel has just 106 yards passing and UF was actually outgained by Mizzou. But the difference was turnovers. The Tigers had four while the Gators had one.

Still, Mizzou is a weird team to be ending that defensive streak. The Tigers have been averaging less than 15 points a game in SEC play this season against teams not named Kentucky.

    With MethU print a t-shirt for scoring the TD?

    Certainly didn’t look like the #7 team after being tied for 3 quarters….

    Manchester: that’s because they are, as always, overrated.

    Overrated as usual.

    Yeah, I guess technically that’s true, since the game just up the road from the UF campus in Jacksonville supposedly still isn’t a “home” game for them…

    but that’s OK, the rest of us in the SEC east have gotten used to headlines that always try and make UF appear better than it really is.
