in general

Once upon a time, the University of Florida seemed to own the Southeastern Conference.

Then came Nick Saban and Alabama.

Then came Kirby Smart and Georgia.

Maybe there is Josh Heupel and Tennessee.

Florida showed just how far they have slid in Saturday's 42-20 loss to Georgia. The Gators fell to 4-4 on the season.

Georgia, the defending national champion, took a 28-3 lead and coasted. Quarterback Stetson Bennett threw for 316 yards and running backs Diajun Edwards and Kenny McIntosh ran for two touchdowns each Brock Bowers caught five passes for 154 yards.

Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson there for 271 yards in the loss.

Florida plays at Texas A&M Saturday at noon.

Miami 14, Virginia 12: The Miami Hurricanes didn't have their quarterback Saturday. As a result, they didn't score a touchdown.

Somehow, however, they won a football game.

The Hurricanes, 4-4, pulled out a 14-12 win over Virginia in the fourth overtime when redshirt freshman Jake Garcia ran in a two-point conversion to allow the Canes to survive.

Garcia, playing in the place of injured Tyler Van Dyke, passed for just 125 yards against the Cavaliers. But kicker Andres Borregales kicked four field goals, including a 20-yarder on the last play of regulation to force overtime.

Running back Henry Parrish Jr. rushed for `113 yards for Miami.

The Hurricanes are home against FSU on Saturday.

FSU 41, Georgia Tech 16: Jordan Travis turned Saturday's game into a highlight reel.

Travis threw for 396 yards as the Seminoles steamrolled the Yellow Jackets. FSU also ran for 246 yards on the ground. The Seminoles piled up 642 yards in the win.

FSU won despite two turnovers and 13 penalties.

The Seminoles travel to Miami to play at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

FSU, 6-3 on the season, got 111 yards rushing from Trey Benson.

Houston 42, USF 27: For USF, it wasn't about a new quarterback after all. It was about the same old defense.

The Bulls scored 27 behind new quarterback starter Katravis Marsh, who acquitted himself well with 375 yards passing. Trouble was, the Bulls simply couldn't keep up with Houston.

The Cougars ran up 490 yards against USF. Of those, 380 came on the right arm of Clayton Tune, who completed 31 of 37 passes. Tank Dell caught eight passes for 112 yards.

USF got 106 yards rushing from Brian Battie.

USF fell to 1-7 on the season. The Bulls travel to Temple to play Saturday at 2 p.m.
