Elliott Fry's four field goals were just enough on Saturday for No. 10 South Carolina to fend off Florida, 19-14, in Columbia.
The scrappy Gators, missing seven starters and playing the game with their third-string quarterback, led throughout the first half behind the legs of running back Kelvin Taylor.
However, things changed in the second half when the Gamecocks loaded up extra defenders in the box to make Florida throw the ball with Skyler Mornhinweg. The strategy worked for South Carolina, and the Gators were unable to sustain any offensive success in the second half.
The loss drops Florida to 4-6 on the season. It is the Gators' fifth straight loss, and they head home for the final two weeks of the season with games against Georgia Southern and No. 2 Florida State.
Here are 10 things we learned about the Gators in Saturday's loss to South Carolina.
