Gators-Seminoles: FSU leads 14-0 at Half, Gators' QB Brantley Knocked Out

It’s been a rough senior night for Florida quarterback John Brantley. Two of his three first half interceptions set up rival Florida State in point blank range leading to the Noles’ 14-0 lead.

Then, on the final drive of the first half, Brantley was sandwiched between two FSU defenders and took a blow to the head. He appeared woozy and was taken immediately to the locker room.

Its likely, Brantley’s night is done, leaving Florida with two freshman quarterbacks to try to bring the Gators back. He finished 9-of15 for 104 yards and 3 interceptions.

FSU has 39 yards of total offense but took advantage of the Gator turnovers, converting with two Devonta Freeman 1 yard touchdowns.

EJ Manuel was 3-of-5 for 40 yards and has been sacked 3 times.

Florida’s usually anemic offense has put up 140 yards. The Gators twice drove deep into FSU territory – the first drive ended with a Brantley interception while the second ended at the Florida State 15 yard line as the Gators were denied on 4th and 1.

Coach Will Muschamp said at half-time, “We’ll take a look at him (Brantley) during the half but it looks like our two young freshman quarterbacks who we like a lot and think will do great things here at Florida will play in the 2nd half.”
