GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Will Muschamp was obviously pleased that his offense had so much success on third down against Kentucky, because that was something the Gators hadn’t had much of through the first three games.

But so was DT Omar Hunter.

UF’s 12-of-17 performance on third downs was just as helpful to the defense. It gave the Gators time to rest, which meant they had more energy on the field -- and that contributed to UF’s first shutout of a Southeastern Conference opponent since a 52-0 rout of Mississippi State in 2001.
