Auburn vs Florida Recap: Defense leads No.10 Gators to statement win over No.7 Tigers | CBS Sports

  • Published: 06 October 2019
  • In a defensive-fueled affair, No. 10 Florida topped No. 7 Auburn 24-13 in front of nearly 91,000 fans in The Swamp on Saturday afternoon in wild, turnover-filled game. Gators forced four turnovers -- including three interceptions from true freshman quarterback Bo Nix -- to stymie an Tigers offense that seemed to find its stride under Gus Malzahn last week.

    Running back Lamical Perine iced the game midway through the fourth quarter when he took off on an 88-yard touchdown run for the game's final score. That complemented a career day from wide receiver Freddie Swain, who caught six balls for 146 yards and the game's first touchdown.

    Gators QB Kyle Trask finished 19-of-31 passing for 234 yards and two touchdowns against one of the best defenses in the nation, though he did have three sack fumbles on the day. Luckily for him and Florida, the defense was able to negate many of the offense's miscues over the course of the contest. To make things even more impressive, Trask had his knee rolled up midway through the second quarter but returned after a short trip to the locker room and brief appearance from backup Emory Jones.

    Hi so how are y'all feeling this week? Smh.... Just because their your team, you know, if you really know anything about football ( college or pro) so many things can happen and the other team come up with the W. That's just football, nothing to ever feel so self assured about. You think Saban don't take each game seriously.

      Speed and power: Alabama=Florida. But It seems that Alabama is better coached. They better organized. If Florida can be better organized. LSU will be cake walk this weekend.

                  Gary Danielson does not hide his bias against Florida when commentating these games. Not sure what happened or why he hates the Gators so much but I watched the second half on mute because I got sick of his crap.

                          the top 4 should be the BEST IN THEIR CONFERENCE 1) Ohio St 2) Georgia 3) Clemson 4) Oklahoma 5) Florida (ND was still a bigger win for the dawgs) 6) LSU 7)Wisconsin 8)Alabama 9) Penn St 10) Boise St ( not very impressed with the win over UNLV but all top 10 teams should be undefeated.

                                                    If the gator defense can keep playing at this elite level for the rest of the year I see no reason why we can’t go 15-0

                                                                If Vandy can put 38 points on LSU so can Florida. I highly doubt LSU can drop 40+ points against this defense unless Florida's offense totally screws them over. All of Auburn's points were off turnovers and a bad fake punt attempt. If the Gators can clean up the turnover issues on Offense and control the game like they did against Auburn, they have a very high chance of coming out of death valley with a win. Kyle Trask needs to work on his pocket awareness, he has either get out of the pocket or tuck the ball and take some of these sacks without coughing up the ball.

For excessive amounts of suck onscreen. Auburn finally played somebody thats not just god-awful, and it showed. This game wouldve been over by halftime, except UF was too busy trying as hard as they could to hand Auburn the game. That defense is not as good as we thought. Theyre lucky UF didnt hang 50 on thier asses lol. I knew the real auburn would show up. It was just a matter of time.

Why do these clowns get the right to tell the public their opinions on betting lines, but they never come out after the games and are forced to admit that they were wrong and have absolutely no clue what they are talking about?

And auburn still in???? Florida came to play and showed all of us they’re a lot better than we thought. What is this CFB
