Meyer, Gators reeling after fifth loss of season

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida coach Urban Meyer refused to point fingers -- again.

This time, he didn't have to.

It was obvious what went wrong with the Gators. The three-quarterback system failed miserably, there were costly turnovers, a failed fake punt, a nonexistent pass rush and cornerback Moses Jenkins getting picked on left and right. The result was a 31-7 drubbing at Florida State that snapped Florida's six-game winning streak in the series and left the Gators with five regular-season losses for the first time since 1988.

Little went right.

Andre Debose returned a kickoff 62 yards, setting up a 20-yard touchdown pass from John Brantley to Robert Clark on Florida's opening possession. But the next five drives were one mistake after another for the Gators (7-5).
