Still, Franklin ran for 29 yards and burned Florida several times with scrambles.
Florida was flat to start the game, no surprise since it was a noon start and came after a disappointing loss against Georgia. The Gators turned the ball over six times in the 17-9 loss that left them needing help to get to Atlanta.
They vowed to play better this week, but it didn't exactly happen. They avoided turnovers, though, which is key for their grind-it-out style.
"When you have a defense like our defense has been playing, just don't turn the ball over," Driskel said. "We turned the ball over a lot against Georgia and we end up losing. It comes down to taking care of the ball and taking shots when they come."
