Florida Vs. Furman Final Score: Gators Get Weird 54-32 Win, Become Bowl Eligible

Florida recovered after a disastrous first quarter against Furman. But while the Gators' 54-32 win over the Paladins makes them bowl eligible, the manner in which they secured it won't make too many fans confident in their chances come December.

John Brantley threw for a career-high 329 yards and four touchdowns, connecting with Andre Debose three times to give the receiver a career-high 151 yards and two touchdowns, and the Gators outscored Furman 47-10 from the first quarter onward.

Florida needed some late plays from its defense to extend that lead, though, after entering the fourth quarter up just 37-32. De'Ante Saunders and Jelani Jenkins each returning a Chris Forcier interception for a touchdown only sort of covered for the Gators allowing 446 yards to their FCS foe.

Furman running back Jerodis Williams ran for 136 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.
