Florida offense collapsing in scoring territory vs. Miami

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

289 yards of offense doesn't translate into points early for the Gator offense in its trip to SunLife Stadium.

Florida's offense moved the ball with some moderate success in the first half against Miami. It controlled the ball for 21:36 of the 30 minutes of game time, racked up nearly 250 yards of total offense annnnnd... scored six points.

That's thanks to unspeakably bad play in Miami territory—especially in the red zone. Florida committed three turnovers, all in Miami territory (two of which came in the red zone), and the Gators also turned over the ball on downs at the Miami 16 in the second quarter. All in all, Florida gained 208 yards on those four ill-fated drives, and a team that moves the ball without scoring points on that type of scale is usually in a lot of trouble.

Now, the key will be whether Florida will get those same kinds of scoring opportunities in the second half. Florida started off the third quarter with (surprise!) a drive deep into Miami territory, but the Gators settled for a field goal.

So for the record, that's nine points after six drives into Miami territory. Not quite what Will Muschamp had in mind, we'd guess.
