The Florida Gator football team ends the 2013 season with a 4-8 record after losing 37-7 Saturday afternoon at home to the Florida State Seminoles. Florida ends its season on a six game losing streak as well.
After playing tough for the first quarter, the Gators found themselves down only 3-0, but a big part of their offensive package for this game went down early when senior Trey Burton hurt his shoulder in the first quarter after a run of 50 yards. Gator coach Will Muschamp said part of the game plan was to have Burton run a lot of plays from the wildcat but his injury stopped that and altered Florida’s offensive game plan also.
After a slow start, Seminole quarterback Jameis Winston completed 19 of 31 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. All three scores went to wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin who caught 9 passes in all for 212 yards.
FSU outgained Florida 456 yards to 193 in the game.
Florida coach Will Muschamp said after the game that the quarterback competition for spring would be an open competition and he said he has no timetable for making any staff changes on his coaching staff, if any are made at all.
FSU will now play Duke in the ACC Championship Game, bringing an unbeaten record into that matchup.
