Florida’s kicking woes almost came back to haunt the team.
Austin Hardin missed two short field goals in regulation and had his extra point blocked in overtime, but the Gators hung on to win 20-14.
“First and foremost, they took it to us. We have to get better. They probably deserved to win, but here’s the thing, our guys have figured out a way to win,” Jim McElwain said in the postgame interview with SEC Network reporter Laura Rutledge.
Florida Atlantic had a chance to tie in overtime, but Brian Poole broke up a pass on fourth and goal.
