Florida Vs. Furman Halftime Score: Gators On Top After Early Deficit

Florida was down 22-7 to Furman at home at the end of the first quarter. The Gators rectified matters in the second quarter, but lead their FCS foe by just five points at the half, 27-22.

The Gators scored three times in the second quarter, and gave up no points in the frame. John Brantley threw touchdown passes to Andre Debose and Quinton Dunbar in the quarter, pushing him to three scoring strikes on the day, which ties his career high for touchdown passes in a game. The 80-yard bomb to Debose was his longest career reception.

But Florida's normally reliable kicker, Caleb Sturgis, missed his second field goal of the day with a minute to go in the half. And that's why the Gators aren't even a full touchdown clear of Furman just yet.

Oh, and the Paladins will get the ball first in the second half.
