Offense: C+

Aside from a few big plays in the passing game, the Florida offense didn’t have a particularly good game. The biggest theme for the Gators was missed opportunities. Despite forcing four interceptions, Florida’s offense failed to capitalize with touchdowns.

Instead, only three field goals came from the FSU turnovers and one drive that started at FSU’s 10-yard line ended in a pick-six for FSU.

Florida kept it close, but the offense simply didn’t make the plays necessary to win the game.

Defense: A-

FSU scored two touchdowns in the second quarter on the Gators, but that was practically it for the Seminoles’ offense. Florida’s defense confused Jameis Winston all night and the Gators took advantage by picking him off four times.

The Gators may have lost the game, but it wasn’t because of a poor defensive performance, especially when the Seminoles scored only three points in the second half. Will Muschamp drew up a great defensive game plan and showed why he’s one of the most-respected defensive minds in college football.

Special Teams: B+

Kicker Austin Hardin took center stage for the Gators’ special teams against the Seminoles. He finished the game 4-for-6, including hitting one from 52-yards out, but unfortunately for him, his two misses were both opportunities for the Gators to take the lead in the second half.

The Gators also blocked a punt late in the first half, which led to Florida scoring a quick touchdown right before the end of the first half. It was a big momentum boost for the Gators, who went into the half down only five points.

Coaching: B

There weren’t many egregious coaching mistakes, if any at all from the Gators against the Seminoles. Perhaps the only time where the coaching was questionable came during Florida’s final offensive drive of the game.

True freshman quarterback Treon Harris still has around two minutes left at midfield, yet he continued throwing downfield in an attempt to make big plays. Instead of throwing it deep, the Gators still had plenty of time to run the ball and keep the balance within the offense. But two deep throws — both of which went incomplete — put the Gators into a corner and they weren’t able to recover.

Overall: B-

It came down to missed opportunities for the Florida Gators. Defensively, I’m not sure Florida could have performed better, but in the end the offense didn’t make enough plays to win the game. Saturday’s loss was a fitting end to the Will Muschamp era at Florida.
