WHERE: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
THE BUZZ: Former Gators Coach Steve Spurrier, now with the Gamecocks, suffered the worst loss of his coaching career in any capacity, and it happened in his old stadium. The Gators held South Carolina to 173 yards of total offense while scoring three first-quarter touchdowns in less than three minutes by creating turnovers. By the end, Florida had outscored their last six opponents 299-63 and won each game by at least 28 points.
KEY PLAY: Linebacker Brandon Spikes scored a 12-yard touchdown off interception for the game's first score.
STARS: Percy Harvin rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on just eight carries, including an 80-yard scamper early in the second half.
STATS: With Tebow's three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing), he had 15 passing touchdowns and no interceptions in his last four games against ranked opponents.
QUOTE: "If he was a tailback on somebody else's team, he'd be a 200-yards-a-game guy. --Spurrier about Harvin.
