Florida pours it on Idaho for biggest win since 2014

The Florida Gators won their second straight in dominating fashion, 63-10 over Idaho at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

GAINESVILLE, Florida — Six seconds in, the route was on.

"Is that like the fastest touchdown in Gator history?" head coach Dan Mullen asked his sports information representative at the post-game press conference.

Chauncey Gardner-Johnson returned his second interception of the season, and the Gators would take a 28-0 lead before the first quarter was said and done. Florida (8-3) never took the foot off the pedal in a 63-10 route of Idaho (4-7) on Senior Day at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

The win is the largest margin of victory since a 65-0 Florida win in 2014 against Eastern Michigan. 63 points was also the most scored by the Gators since that win over Eastern Michigan.

Felipe Franks threw for 274 yards and tallied four total touchdowns in the win. Freshman Emory Jones also played for the Gators, throwing for a pair of touchdowns. Jones has one game remaining before using up his red-shirt eligibility.

Florida travels to Florida State (5-6) next Saturday. Kickoff in Tallahassee is set for noon.
