Shorthanded Gators roll Toledo 24-6

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

 

One thought on “Shorthanded Gators roll Toledo 24-6”

  1. In spite of being short-handed, these kids didn’t quit – Driskel held his own and Mack Brown delivered on offense – also, I like what I saw from our younger and up-coming talent. It wasn’t a flashy win by any means; it was just resilient, blue-collar football, and the W is what really counts when all is said and done. A win over that school down in Coral Gables next week will give this team momentum heading into our SEC schedule. GO GATORS!!!!
