After losing to the Georgia Bulldogs in Jacksonville last week, the Florida Gators crushed the Vanderbilt Commodores, 56-0, in a bounce-back win in Week 11.

Despite a scoreless first quarter, this game was not close at all.

Florida began pouring it on immediately in the second quarter, starting with a one yard touchdown pass from Kyle Trask, the first of three he tossed. He also rushed for a touchdown in the second, making it 14-0 going into half. It was all Florida from there.

Trask added two more touchdown passes, making his total on the day four. Emory Jones, their backup quarterback, added 34 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. Lamical Perine had a quiet day, only adding 13 yards on four carries.

This game featured essentially nothing from the Vandy side. Their quarterbacks combined for just 77 yards and two interceptions. Stud running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn only piled up 28 yards on 15 carries, and their leading rusher, Keyon Brooks, had just 34 yards.

Not only was the score lopsided in Florida’s advantage, but so was the total yardage. Florida had 560 total yards, to just 128 from Vandy. 128! That is really hard to do. It was total domination from the Gators in The Swamp.

Florida will head to play the Missouri Tigers in Columbia next week for their final SEC game of the regular season. Meanwhile, Vanderbilt will host the Kentucky Wildcats next week.
