With the victory, the Bulldogs (7-1, 5-1 in the Southeastern Conference) remained in contention for their third consecutive SEC East crown and, potentially, a lucrative Bowl Championship Series game.
Playing for the first time since head coach Ron Zook was fired Monday, the Gators (4-4, 2-4) could not deliver a victory for their embattled coach and his staff. Zook will finish out the season.
