I guess we had to wait to play Vanderbilt until the offense started putting up points. O-well, I'll take it. The Gators have now won two games in a row and still control their own destiny in the SEC East. A win over South Carolina this week will lock up the East and ensure a trip to Atlanta. The Gators win over the Commodores was their 20th victory over them in a row. Florida's 41 first-half points were the most in a half against a SEC team since scoring 49 in the first half at Kentucky on Sept. 24, 2005.
The player of the game was without a doubt Chris Rainey, who excelled on offense and special teams - with two blocked punts. Rainey also caught four passes for 75 yards, including a long touchdown bomb and one heck of a great catch. It's amazing how much difference one player can make on a team.
John Brantley had a decent day, going 11-of-18 for 157 yards and two touchdowns. Brantley didn't play the entire game. As expected Trey Burton saw some work at QB (wildcat) and Jordan Reed received ample work... showing he might be the true backup. Jordan Reed also had two scores, finishing 11-of-19 passing for 120 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Reed also ran for a game-high 84 yards on 16 carries.
Florida will battle South Carolina next Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for the right to represent the SEC East in Atlanta for the 2010 SEC Championship Game. The game will kick off at 7:15 p.m. and will be shown nationally on either ESPN or ESPN2.
