Gainesville, Fla. • No. 7 Florida used a strong defensive effort to overcome a sluggish offensive performance in a 23-0 win over Jacksonville State on Saturday.
The Gators scored a touchdown on their first possession when Mike Gillislee plowed into the end zone from 7 yards out. But that was the only offensive touchdown all day from Florida.
The Gators (10-1) also scored on a 7-yard interception return by Jonathan Bostic early in the third quarter. Caleb Sturgis added three field goals from 21, 44 and 47 yards to complete the scoring.
