GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Desperate to find some offensive
rhythm, Florida took a close look at two of college football's most
recent juggernauts.

The Gators copied everything they could.

Florida re-examined 2008 Oklahoma, which became the
highest-scoring team in NCAA history (716 points) and the first to
score 60 or more points in five consecutive games, and broke down
2010 Oregon. The top-ranked Ducks are averaging 573 yards and 55
points a game.

Florida (5-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) spent two weeks
installing no-huddle formations and incorporating a
dual-quarterback twist for deception. The result was a season-high
77 plays, 450 total yards and a 34-31 victory in overtime Saturday
against rival Georgia.

Now, the Gators plan to stick with it the rest of the year.
