Florida Gators quarterback Trey Burton Florida quarterback Trey Burton calls Tennessee Front runners Will Muschamp Trey Burton Tennessee Volunteers Florida Gators 80 yard run 2 touchdowns

Florida’s Trey Burton hasn’t been the starter for the Gators for the last two games, but Saturday night he proved why the Gators need him more than ever.

Out of his three touches on Saturday, two went for touchdowns. Burton’s three carries totaled 91 yards. Not only that, Burton lined up and caught two passes for 38 yards.

After the game Saturday Burton said the following:

“They’re front-runners,” said Trey Burton, one of Saturday night’s heroes. “They talk a lot and as soon as we got up a little their fans starting leaving.”

Lets just say that the Gators may have found the answer to a sluggish offense they were experiencing during the first half, Burton’s play ignited Jeff Driskel who went on to finish the game 14 – 20 for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns where as Bray threw the ball 44 times and lost the game.

This makes back-to-back games that Gator coach Will Muschamp has made some outstanding halftime adjustments.

Here’s Burton’s 80 yard touchdown run.

Burton got the ball rolling in 2nd half

If there was play that opened up the floodgates for Florida’s 37 points of offense on Saturday it was the well-drawn up and executed 80 yard run by then ‘wildcat’ quarterback Trey Burton. Burton had already run for one touchdown earlier in the game, but that one set the tone for the Gators’ big finish.

Florida Gators Rise To No. 14 In Both Polls; We Just Might Have Something Here

The Florida Gators have moved up to No. 14 in both major polls. The Gators can attribute the move to a second half against the Tennessee Volunteers that was a thing of beauty. Starting the season at No. 23, the Gators have showed enough improvement over the first three games to warrant a top-15 ranking by the voters. Is this rise a sign of things to come? Or simply a matter of an...

Driskel wary of comparisons to Tebow

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Sophomore Jeff Driskel has heard comparisons to former Gators star Tim Tebow since he was in high school. They both play quarterback. They are both big and physical for that position. They both came out of high school as top recruits nationally. And they both signed with the Gators. As Driskel led Florida to a 37-20 win at Tennessee on Saturday, the Tebow comparisons...

Strong finishes lead to fast start for Florida

No. 14 Florida had two numbers plastered around its facility during the offseason. Players saw them daily. Coaches repeated them for motivation. They became as ingrained as the playbook. Those numbers, 72 and 22, were what opponents and the Gators scored, respectively, in the fourth quarter of Southeastern Conference games last season. They offered a clear picture of coach Will...

NY Jets’ Tim Tebow pigged out during recruiting dinner with Urban Meyer

New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow reportedly ate four heaping dishes in one meal at a New Jersey Italian restaurant while his former college coach asked him for some recruiting help. Tebow and Urban Meyer — his head coach at the University of Florida — recently chowed down at Guerriero’s Ristorante, a hot eatery in Morristown, New Jersey. Meyer, who is now the head...

Gators again get upper hand on Vols

Jeff Driskel threw two touchdown passes and Trey Burton rushed for a pair of scores Saturday as No. 18 Florida scored the final 24 points to beat No. 23 Tennessee 37-20 and make it eight straight wins against its SEC East rival. Burton, a fullback who often takes snaps out of the Wildcat formation, raced 80 yards down the right sideline to tie the score 20-20 with 3:15 left in the...

Koehne adjusting to o-line exterior

Depth is a key factor molding Florida’s winning foundation this season. Coach Will Muschamp has been preaching a “man down, man up” mentality to his players, making his expectations for the men on the sidelines crystal clear: Be ready to go in at any given time. Due to right tackle Chaz Green’s recent ankle injury, Saturday’s matchup against Tennessee marked Kyle Koehne’s time.

Second-half surge pushes Gators past Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jeff Driskel threw a pair of touchdown passes and Trey Burton rushed for two more scores as No. 18 Florida scored the final 24 points to beat No. 23 Tennessee 37-20 on Saturday night and run its winning streak in the series to eight straight.

HE'S SO UNUSUAL

Vols fan loses bet, has to sing Cyndi Lauper song

BigVOLdaddy is a Tennessee Volunteers fan and he’s not a happy camper. His team blew a lead and lost to the Florida Gators, 37-20. They fell out of the AP Top 25 rankings. So now he has to pay up on a bet. Here's the bet: He had to sing "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." And he had to post the video on YouTube.

McCray Playing for Family

Lerentee McCray heard the questions. Multiple times throughout his last five years in Gainesville, people back in Dunnellon would ask his mother about her son. ‘Why wasn’t Lerentee playing?’ ‘Was he hurt?’ There weren’t always answers. Now an integral part of the Florida defense, McCray’s fast start to the 2012 season is one he hopes to use to help support his family...

Faces Of Misery: Tennessee Still Can’t Beat The Florida Gators

Saturday’s college football action presumably left very few people wanting more, because I can’t remember a day that was filled with so many exciting games and delightful upsets. For starters, I assume that everyone was on the edge of their seats for the incredible UCF win over FIU, because I was at that game, which immediately made it the most star-studded game in college football...

Strong finishes due to maturity & responding

Florida’s roll can’t be attributed to its first moments on the field. The Gators’ success has remained sealed at the start, only to be unleashed in the second half for big-time finishes. Three games deep into the season, the orange and blue has outperformed its opponents to secure victories in the quarters that unravel after halftime — something Coach Will Muschamp attributes to character.
