Vanderbilt Vs. Florida: Gators End Losing Streak, Escape With 26-21 Victory Over Commodores

The Florida Gators (5-4, 3-4 SEC) ended their four game losing streak, eeking out a five point win over the Vanderbilt Commodores (4-5, 1-5) at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium Saturday afternoon. The Gators almost blew a 17 point lead, but survived a 14 point fourth quarter by the Commodores to win their fifth game of the year.

John Brantley was efficient and mistake-free at quarterback for Florida, complete 16 of 24 passes for 173 yards. Running back Jeff Demps was the offensive star of the game for Florida, gaining 158 yards on 23 carries, scoring twice on a five yard scamper and a 52 yard burst.

Vanderbilt's Jordan Rodgers, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers' star Aaron Rodgers, led Vanderbilt in defeat. Rodgers was 19 of 28 for 297 yards and two touchdowns, falling just short in his teams' fourth quarter comeback effort.
