Florida Gators' offense clicking after first quarter; UF lead Georiga 14-3

JACKSONVILLE -- So much for those offensive woes.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is on fire in the first quarter at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium and the Gators lead the Bulldogs 14-3. UF scored on consecutive drives to begin the game. Both series were displays of precision and big-play ability that the Gators have lacked recently.

Receiver Riley Cooper has two touchdown receptions. His 22-yard catch from Tebow with 12:21 left in the first quarter gave UF a 7-0 lead. Cooper had a 29-yard touchdown reception on the following series. Florida has 172 yards of offense after two drives and Tebow was 8 of 9 for 106 yards.

The Florida Gators drove 80 yards in six plays on the opening series and torched the Bulldogs on the second series with a 92-yard drive on 11 plays.

Florida Gators safety Dorian Munroe is dressed on the sidelines for the first time this season. He warmed up on a stationary bike during the first quarter but did not play.

Those wily Georgia Bulldogs surprised everyone at kickoff with black pants and black helmets. Halloweened themed? Mike-Mike McCall mentioned that they look like skeletons.
