It was not the prettiest performance, and the offense should have put up more points, but, overall I will gladly take a dominating win over a good team
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Mack Brown had tears in eyes before the game and a smile on his face after.
In between, he ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns — and vomited on the sideline.
Not a bad start for Brown or No. 10 Florida.
Brown’s career day, Jeff Driskel‘s efficiency and a dominant defense carried the Gators to a 24-6 win over Toledo in the teams’ season opener Saturday.
The Gators controlled both lines of scrimmage, opening holes for Brown and keeping steady pressure on Toledo’s experienced offense. It was exactly the style of play Florida has become known for under Muschamp. No flashiness. Few highlight-reel plays. But a win in the end.
It was Florida’s 24th consecutive season-opening victory, the second-longest active streak in the country. Only Nebraska (27) has a longer current run.
Up next a trip to Miami to play the Canes
