No. 4 Florida solid early, sloppy late in 59-31 win over Troy

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Number 4 Florida was nearly perfect early and sloppy late.

Tim Tebow threw three touchdown passes, ran for two more scores and led the defending national champion Gators to a 59-31 victory against Troy.

Florida scored on all seven possessions in the first half, moving the ball with relative ease against Troy's soft zone.

The Trojans (0-2) refused to give the Gators (2-0) anything deep, keeping two safeties well back and prompting Tebow to throw underneath.

Tebow obliged, and the Gators ended up stringing together seven consecutive scoring drives. They led 49-7 at halftime, and the starters figured to get much of the rest of the night off before facing SEC East rival Tennessee in a week.
