They can score faster than you. They can score more repeatedly. They can score until their opponent grows weary of lining up for extra points.

Pretty much, that is the game plan of the Florida Gators.

Florida scored often enough to get a lethargic 38-17 victory over the winless Vanderbilt Commodores Saturday night. After trailing in the first period, the Gators followed another good effort by Kyle Trask (383 yards, three touchdowns) to win.

In the background, however, the Gators weren't that impressive on defense. They gave up 319 yards passing to Ken Seals.

"I think it was just kind of a really ho-hum performance by us, if that's the best way to put it," said Florida coach Dan Mullen. 'We had breakdowns on both sides of the ball that were at times disappointing."

The Gators' are just outside of the college football's top four, which would put them in the playoffs. Likewise, Trask is in the discussion for the Heisman Trophy.

UF has scored at least 35 points in its straight games, all against SEC opponents. However, everyone has scored at least 17 points, and five teams have scored 24 or more.

Trask has now thrown for 28 touchdowns and 2,171 yards on the season.

Florida plays Kentucky at home next week.
