Auburn has ‘uncharacteristic’ number of penalties against Florida

Auburn has ‘uncharacteristic’ number of penalties against Florida”

It's the first top-10 matchup at Florida Field since the Gators thumped SC 44-11 in October 2012.

Florida was already threatening from Auburn's 33-yard line following an interception when Jack Driscoll was called for a personal foul for a blindside block during the return.

"I just feel like we're working so hard, that we're just earning our respect and coming for everything we deserve", said Shawn Davis, who picked up 41 yards on one of those interceptions in the win over Auburn.

Perine broke loose for an 88-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, Florida's defense delivered another gem and the No. 10 Gators beat seventh-ranked Auburn 24-13 in a matchup of unbeaten teams.

He wasn't helped by a running game that produced just 20 yards on its first 11 attempts. Luckily for him and Florida, the defense was able to negate numerous offense's miscues over the course of the contest.

The two SEC rivals both arrive into the game unbeaten with a flawless 5-0 record, which includes a 2-0 record against conference rivals. But it was a handsome fourth quarter or the Gators, who hadn't played the Tigers since 2011 and hadn't beaten them since 2002.

The Gators have taken a lot of pride in their red zone defense efficiency - a stat line that Florida led the country in as of last week.

Trask played the entire second half with the injury. Many of us would not expect to see this many turnovers between two top 10 teams.

Trask covered his face with his hands as he was being tended to by Florida's medical staff. The Tigers are off to a 5-0 start following a 56-23 win at home over Mississippi State last weekend. Both teams are legitimate contenders for a College Football Playoff spot down the road.

Of course, it does, that is why it is your home field and you want to play games there.

Georgia is also going to be a tough test for the Gators.

The Tigers are giving up just 17.2 points and 320.2 yards per game on defense this season while the offense is putting up 38 points and 454.4 yards per game.

However, considering the Gators consistently preach the importance of the next game, Perine's next test is maintaining his production. Florida was sacked four times vs.

Trask had released a pass as Auburn DE Marlon Davidson was barreling towards him. For sure, but not a single player can claim to have any better of a game than another. The Gators are 2-0 in the SEC, 2-3 against the spread and 4-1 with the under thus far. As great as the defense has been, it isn't going to be enough to be to lead them to a title this year.
