Here are a few quick thoughts from Florida’s 20-14 overtime win over Florida Atlantic:

What it means: He might have been close to a heart attack on the final possessions, but Florida coach Jim McElwain becomes the first coach in school history to start his tenure with a 10-win season. The No. 8 Gators (10-1, 7-1 in the SEC) continue to limp toward the finish line, with three grossly unimpressive wins since the 27-3 victory over Georgia in Week 9.

What I liked: In the third quarter, LB Antonio Morrison forced a Jason Driskel fumble at the 50-yard line that was scooped up by DL Taven Bryan and returned 48 yards, setting up Florida’s first score of the game. Florida’s big-play man, WR Antonio Callaway, delivered with a 53-yard touchdown reception that made it 14-0. CB Jalen Tabor stepped up in the absence of CB Vernon Hargreaves III (stomach issues).

What I didn’t like: Florida played an absolutely embarrassing scoreless first half against a 2-9 team in The Swamp. The Owls outgained the Gators 299-252 for the game. The offensive line had its worst game of the season, with Harris brought down on three sacks. Just when Florida started to build a multi-possession lead, the defense gave up a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive that cut it to 14-7. QB Treon Harris killed one Gators drive and gifted the Owls a touchdown with two turnovers. Florida’s kicking game was atrocious, with two missed field goals and a blocked extra point.

Who’s the man: With Hargreaves missing three quarters of the game due to stomach issues, Tabor (4 tackles, INT, 5 pass break ups) stepped up with stellar defense (save for FAU’s scoring drive).

Key play: Harris hit McGee for a 13-yard touchdown pass in overtime for the go-ahead touchdown.

What’s next:¬†The Gators will look to finish with a perfect home record if they can defeat archrival Florida State.
