The Bulldogs, who came into the game ranked first in the nation in pass defense, allowed 507 yards through the air.
“When you play a team that blitzes like that, and you get in the shotgun, you can have a chance to score a lot,” Spurrier said. “We scored a lot. We left some out there, too. It’s not like we were hitting on all cylinders.”
That’s the scary part.
With 640 yards in offense, the Gators have surpassed 500 yards in all four games this season.
Grossman, who also ran for a touchdown, has been brilliant through the stretch.
Soon — probably this week — he will start drawing comparisons to Danny Wuerffel. The sophomore completed 22 of 31 passes, and has 1,401 yards and 15 touchdown passes on the year. After four games in 1996, Wuerffel had thrown for 925 yards and 10 scores on his way to the Heisman Trophy.
