GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jeff Demps ran for a career-high 139 yards and a touchdown, Justin Trattou returned an interception for a score and No. 8 Florida beat South Florida 38-14 on Saturday.
The Gators (2-0) overcame a sluggish start for the second consecutive week, took advantage of five turnovers and extended their home winning streak to 13 games.
Big plays were key.
John Brantley's first TD pass came after an interception. Demps' 62-yard TD run followed a fumble. Mike Gillislee scored after another turnover. Trattou picked off a pass and rumbled 35 yards to the end zone. And the Gators turned Demps' 54-yard kickoff into a field goal.
Florida's first half included three punts and a missed field goal. The Gators scored in the final minute of the half, then rolled after the break.
B.J. Daniels ran for 107 yards for the Bulls (1-1), but also threw four interceptions.
