Gamecocks send UF to fifth straight defeat, 19-14

Florida went dormat on offense after a 14-6 lead and lost its fifth game in a row, 19-14 at No. 10 South Carolina Saturday night.

The Gators are 4-6 on the season and with the loss will not be going to a bowl game. A losing season is certain unless Florida plans on knocking off FSU. This is the longest losing streak for the Gators since the winless 1979 season. 

Kelvin Taylor had both the Gators' TDs as they led 14-6 at half.

Florida was down to Skyler Morningwheg at quarterback. The redshirt freshman only attempted two passes in the first half and finished 10-of-13 for 107 yards.

Skyler Fry kicked four field goals, the third putting South Carolina ahead 16-14 with 6:54 remaining. His insurance kick made it 19-14 with 2:17 remaining, giving Florida time to win but Morningwheg was intercepted near midfield. 

The Gamecocks improved to 8-2 and kept alive their SEC East hopes though they still need a Missouri defeat. Florida is now 4-6 on the season with games left against Georgia Southern and FSU.
