There’s something about 11 a.m. in Nashville that leaves Florida’s offense flowing like molasses.
Two years ago, the Gators dug out of a 21-3 hole. Saturday, Vanderbilt again forced a game of catch-up against No. 6 Florida. True freshman quarterback Ken Seals completed 11 of 12 passes for 157 yards, a touchdown and seven first downs until the early second quarter.
The Commodores (0-7) ran play after play using a faster tempo to force defenders out of position. They would finish with 406 total yards, 319 through the air, 21 first downs and 6 yards per play against the playoff-hopeful Gators (6-1).
