Florida Beats New Mexico 61-13

Florida began the Jim McElwain Era with a statement victory on Saturday.

After battling each other for more than a month for the starting job, Treon Harris and Will Grier took turns beating up on the hapless Aggies during Florida’s 61-13 win Saturday night in the Swamp.

But when the dust settled, the Gators’ quarterback race still lacked a clear winner and could continue another week – maybe longer.

“I could see that,” McElwain said. “We’ll probably do something similar next week.”

The two-quarterback rotation worked to near perfection against the defenseless Aggies, who entered the game 35.5-point underdogs.

With Harris on the field for the opening three series and Grier the next four, the Gators averaged an astounding 10.03 yards per play to build a 34-13 halftime.
