Swamp success: No. 8 Florida ends 4-game home skid vs FSU


Kyle Trask threw three first-half touchdown passes, including two to Freddie Swain, and the eighth-ranked Gators hammered the Seminoles 40-17 to end a four-game, home losing streak in the series.


Florida scored touchdowns on four of its first five possessions, needing two fourth-down conversions to get the first two, and was able to start celebrating long before the final seconds ticked off the clock.


One of 22 seniors recognized before their home finale, Swain caught a screen pass, waited for a block, split two defenders and sprinted 19 yards to cap the opening drive.

The sold-out Swamp was rocking most of the night, and the home crowd got something it hadn't seen since Tim Tebow's senior season in 2009 -- a victory over FSU in Gainesville.
