THE BUZZ: Florida battled miserable weather to win their fifth straight over the rival Seminoles with gritty play by Tim Tebow, who completed 12 of 21 passes for 185 yards and 80 yards rushing. The Gators outshined the Seminoles 502-242 in total offensive yards. The Seminoles had three turnovers and converted 3-of-14 third downs.
KEY PLAY: Tight end Aaron Hernandez's 7-yard touchdown catch at the end of the first quarter to make it 14-3 Gators. Tebow threw across his body to the other side of the field for the score.
STARS: Hernandez had another solid day with four catches for 61 yards and two scores, while running-back tandem Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey combined for 186 yards on the ground.
STATS: Florida Coach Urban Meyer is now 11-1 against rivals Tennessee, Georgia and FSU.
QUOTE: "They score so many points so fast that everybody gets out of their game plan. You're trying to catch up and you start doing things you shouldn't be doing." --FSU Coach Bobby Bowden.
