GAINESVILLE, Fla. • Mike Gillislee had a career-high 148 yards rushing and two touchdowns to help No. 23 Florida beat Bowling Green 27-14 on Saturday.
The performance was far from perfect for the Gators, who struggled part of the game on offense and failed to generate much pressure on defense. It still was enough for Florida to win its 23rd consecutive opener. The streak is the second longest in the nation behind Nebraska (27).
The Gators can thank Gillislee, Frankie Hammond and two missed field goals for the latest one.
