Florida Opens the Season With a Bang! 48-0 Over Miami University. Teams always want to start hot and that is exactly what the Gators did in their season opener against the outmatched Miami University football team. Five different Gators scored a rushing touchdown and the Gators out rushed the Hawks 382 to 0. The Gators leading rusher was QB Trey Burton who had 144 yards on 19 carries, while Jeffery Demps had 115 yards on 9 carries. With the rushing game working for such success passing was never really a priority. However, Burton did show that he was capable of hitting the long ball as he and Carl Moore hooked up on a 67 yard touchdown strike early in the second quarter. Next up for the Gators is a big matchup against ACC foe Georgia Tech, who is looking to bring the triple option into the swamp for a victory march. It should be a great matchup of two remarkably similar rushing attacks.
