TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The quarterback who grew up just a few minutes down the road helped Florida halt a five-year losing streak to Florida State, and the Gators ensured the Seminoles will not go to a bowl.
Feleipe Franks had three touchdown passes and No. 13 Florida used a punishing ground attack to end a five-game losing streak to Florida State, defeating the Seminoles 41-14 on Saturday.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida had more on its mind than just running up a big score against Idaho.
Sure the 63-10 final score didn't hurt the No. 15 Gators' bid for a spot in a New Year's Six bowl game, but there was even more than that at stake. This was a game about the future,
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Feleipe Franks placed his index finger across his lips after both touchdown runs, sending a message to a home crowd that booed him earlier.
After the second one, there was nothing Franks could have done to silence the Florida faithful.
Franks accounted for three touchdowns, including the go-ahead score with a little more than four minutes remaining, and the 19th-ranked Gators rallied to beat South Carolina 35-31 Saturday and end a two-game losing streak.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Dan Mullen will take a few more days before settling on a starting quarterback against South Carolina.
Feleipe Franks or Kyle Trask will get the nod when the 19th-ranked Gators (6-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) host the Gamecocks (5-3, 4-3) on Saturday. Mullen also didn't rule out playing highly touted freshman Emory Jones.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jump pass. Double pass. Rocker step. Throwback toss. Those are apparently just a glimpse into Dan Mullen's playbook.
The first-year Florida coach has turned to a little trickery to help the 14th-ranked Gators mask their offensive deficiencies.
"Daring Dan" is perfect on the season with them, too.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Lucas Krull grew up idolizing Tim Tebow, a left-handed quarterback big enough to play tight end.
So imagine how wide-eyed Krull was when Tebow spoke in the locker room before Florida's game against LSU. Krull was even more star-struck when Tebow congratulated him afterward.
No. 5 LSU (5-0, 2-0 SEC) at No. 22 Florida (4-1, 2-1), 3:30 p.m. EDT (CBS)

WHAT'S AT STAKE?

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Coach Dan Mullen's return to Starkville will grab most of the headlines when his Florida Gators travel to face No. 23 Mississippi State on Saturday.
But much more is at stake than an emotional reunion.
Florida (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) and Mississippi State (3-1, 0-1) have already stumbled once during league play — both against Kentucky — and now face a game that could eliminate one program from being a surprise contender for an SEC title.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's inability to hang on to the football assured that Florida would continue its mastery of this annual series.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks gets goosebumps every time he sees the replay.
The throw. The catch. The celebration.
Franks' 63-yard touchdown pass to Tyrie Cleveland on the final play stunned Tennessee 26-20 last season and secured a spot in rivalry lore forever.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks finally got to see how a jump pass is supposed to look.
Franks scrolled through his phone after the team's season opener, a 53-6 win against overmatched Charleston Southern on Saturday night, and realized he needed to check out two of Tim Tebow's most memorable passes.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Dan Mullen took a victory lap around Florida Field and then tossed his visor into the stands.

Feleipe Franks threw five touchdowns passes in the first half and Florida got the Mullen era off to rousing start with a 53-6 victory against overmatched Charleston Southern on Saturday night.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks insists he has nothing to prove.
Coaches, teammates and close to 90,000 fans at Florida Field on Saturday probably would disagree.
Feleipe Franks' mobility landed him the starting quarterback job at Florida.
Coach Dan Mullen named Franks the team's starter to begin the season, saying Monday that his "ability to extend plays, some of his athleticism right now, will give us the best opportunity to win games."
It's not exactly a glowing endorsement for Franks, who will take the first snap when the Gators open against Charleston Southern on Saturday night.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Dan Mullen has no illusions about his quarterback situation.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The most important guy on Florida's sideline Saturday wasn't coach Dan Mullen or quarterback Feleipe Franks.
He didn't wear a headset or have a play-calling sheet. He didn't touch the football or get in the huddle.
He was hardly even noticeable at the team's annual spring game at the Swamp. Yet his role the last three months and the next three months is more critical to the program's planned turnaround than anyone else.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — This was far from Florida State-Florida of old.
Two losing teams. Two struggling offenses. Two proud programs essentially playing out the string.
The only thing that seemed even vaguely familiar: The outcome.
Jacob Pugh and Levonta Taylor turned takeaways into touchdowns and helped the Seminoles beat the Gators for the fifth consecutive year, 38-22 Saturday.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida is switching quarterbacks for the fourth time in seven weeks.
Interim coach Randy Shannon said Monday that Feleipe Franks will be the team's starter against UAB, regaining his spot on the depth chart following an injury to Malik Zaire.
Shannon says "that's what we have to go with today."
Zaire started the last two games — both losses — and sustained an apparent left knee injury in a 28-20 loss at South Carolina on Saturday.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida will start its third quarterback of the season Saturday at Missouri.
Interim coach Randy Shannon announced Thursday that graduate transfer Malik Zaire will start against the Tigers (3-5, 0-4 Southeastern Conference), a game the Gators (3-4, 3-3) probably need to win to make a bowl.
Zaire replaces redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, who was benched in three of six starts.
