Gainesville, FL (Sports Network) - Six times Missouri crossed midfield in the
second half only to be turned away by a staunch Florida defense.
The Gators, meanwhile, found the end zone twice after halftime on a pair of
big plays and came away with a 14-7 victory over the Tigers in the Swamp.
Omarius Hines scored the tying touchdown on a 36-yard run in the third quarter
and Mike Gillislee took a pass 45 yards to the end zone for the go-ahead score
in the fourth, as the eighth-ranked Gators (8-1, 7-1 SEC) wrapped up their
conference schedule with a bounce-back win after last week's loss to Georgia.
Florida, which closes its season with home games against Louisiana and
Jacksonville State before traveling to Tallahassee for the annual grudge match
against Florida State, can still win the SEC East and play in the conference
championship game if Georgia suffers another league loss.
Missouri (4-5, 1-5) was coming off its first-ever SEC win last week against
Kentucky and lost for the third time in four games. James Franklin threw for
236 yards and was intercepted four times in defeat, while Kendial Lawrence
scored the only Tiger touchdown in the second quarter.
