Gators shut out FCS Jacksonville State 23-0
FLORIDA 23, JACKSONVILLE ST 0

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's offensive struggles continued
for the fourth consecutive game. It didn't really matter against
Jacksnville State.



It might next week.



The seventh-ranked Gators turned in another mediocre showing
against a less talented team, relying on a strong defensive
effort to win their final home game 23-0 on Saturday.



Florida finishes its season against rival Florida State next
week in Tallahassee.



The gators showed little offense following an impressive 80-yard
drive on its first possession. Mike Gillislee carried eight
times in the 12-play drive, netting 35 yards, including the
final 7 on a run up the middle to the end zone.



But that proved to be Florida's only drive of the day that ended
with a touchdown. Four other possessions reached the Gamecocks
30 but eventually stalled. Caleb Sturgis put points on the board
with field goals from 21, 44 and 47 yards out. A 37-yard attempt
late in the first half was blocked.



Last Saturday, the Gators had to score twice in the final 1:42
of the game to beat Louisiana-Lafayette, with the winning
touchdown coming on a blocked punt return for a score with two
seconds left in the game.



"We need to do better to be more consistent offensively,"
Florida coach Will Muschamp said. "I know I have been saying
that, and I know it's a broken record, but we will continue to
work at it and do what we have to do to put ourselves in a
situation where we have the game under control defensively.



"We could have done some more things offensively, but I said,
`let's go out here and win the game' and that is what we needed
to do."



Florida (10-1) was burned for a 76-yard pass completion on the
first play of the game when receiver Kevyn Cooper caught a short
pass, rolled on top and over two Florida defenders and continued
down the sideline before he was caught from behind at the 7. But
the defense stiffened, forcing the Gamecocks to try a 25-yard
field goal that sailed wide left.



Jacksonville State (6-5) only managed another 166 total yards in
the game. The Gamecocks, a Football Championship Series (FCS)
program that plays in the Ohio Valley Conference, crossed
midfield on just one other occasion. That came early in the
second quarter when they put together a 71-yard drive to the
Florida 19-yard line, only to have Griffin Thomas miss another
field goal attempt.



"We could have scored on them," Jacksonville State coach Jack
Crowe said. "We had some opportunities in the first half. That's
the first time we've been shut out in a long time. But if you're
going to have it happen, you want it to be against a quality
team like they are."



Florida quarterback Jacoby Brissett started in place of injured
Jeff Driscoll. Brissett connected on 14-of-22 passes for 154
yards, but missed open receivers on several occasions, including
throwing behind an open Jordan Reed in the end zone.



Gillislee led the ground game with 122 of Florida's 202 rushing
yards and its only offensive touchdown.



Florida's only other touchdown came early in the third quarter
following a punt that forced Jacksonville State to start from
its 2-yard line. On a third-down pass play, senior linebacker
Jonathan Bostic stepped in front of a Gamecocks receiver and
returned an interception 7 yards to the end zone.



"He threw it right to me," said Bostic about his second pick of
the season. "We knew someone had to make a play down there. I
was just the guy who made the play."
