Top 25: No. 23 Florida 27, Bowling Green 14
First Published Sep 01 2012 05:39 pm • Last Updated Sep 04 2012 04:46 pm

GAINESVILLE, Fla. • Mike Gillislee had a career-high 148 yards rushing and two touchdowns to help No. 23 Florida beat Bowling Green 27-14 on Saturday.

The performance was far from perfect for the Gators, who struggled part of the game on offense and failed to generate much pressure on defense. It still was enough for Florida to win its 23rd consecutive opener. The streak is the second longest in the nation behind Nebraska (27).

The Gators can thank Gillislee, Frankie Hammond and two missed field goals for the latest one.

Gillislee, a senior who spent the last three years playing behind Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, scored on runs of 15 and 38 yards in the second quarter. Hammond turned a short pass into a 50-yard score early in the fourth. Bowling Green could have had a second-half lead, but fifth-year senior Stephen Stein missed field-goal attempts of 31 and 29 yards.
