Recap


No. 8 Florida 14, Missouri 7: Mike Gillislee caught a 45-yard pass for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter and the Gators' big-play defense made the lead stand up to beat the visiting Tigers.

Omarius Hines scored on a 36-yard run and Florida (8-1, 7-1 SEC) kept its East Division title hopes alive by picking off four passes and thwarting six consecutive second-half drives in its end of the field.

Matt Elam's 41-yard interception return set up Gillislee's touchdown with 13:32 to play and Loucheiz Purifoy blocked a potential go-ahead field goal attempt with just over 4 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter as the Gators erased a 7-0 halftime deficit.

James Franklin turned in an erratic performance for Missouri (4-5, 1-5), completing 24 of 51 passes for 236 yards and the four interceptions, including ones by Jonathan Bostic with 4:20 to play and the dagger by Josh Evans with 6 seconds left.

Gators backup kicker Brad Phillips missed a 24-yard field goal attempt wide right with 1:49 left, giving Missouri another chance, but the Tigers' saw another drive snuffed out when Evans intercepted Franklin's high toss in the end zone. Kendial Lawrence had a 1-yard scoring run in the second quarter for Missouri, which ran 27 plays in Florida territory in the second half but was unable to put up any points.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Purifoy's third-quarter block of Andrew Baggett's 25-yard field goal attempt was his third block of the season and the ninth blocked kick by the Gators in the past 21 games. ... Missouri racked up 23 first downs to Florida's 11 and held the ball for nearly 34 minutes. ... Phillips entered the game in place of an ailing Florida K Caleb Sturgis (ankle), who had a 47-yard field goal attempt blocked in the first half.
