GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jordan Reed accounted for four touchdowns, including a pass to quarterback John Brantley, and Florida beat Appalachian State 48-10 on Saturday.
The Gators turned in one of their best offensive performances of the season, snapped a three-game losing streak at home and gave 23 seniors a positive finale in the Swamp.
In a season with nearly as many ups as downs, it didn't matter that it came against a team from the Football Championship Subdivision.
The Gators (7-4) scored touchdowns on four of their first five possessions, led 35-0 early in the third quarter and enjoyed their third lopsided victory of the season.
Appalachian State (9-2) lost for the second time in three weeks. Nonetheless, the Mountaineers almost certainly will get a bye in the first round of the FCS playoffs that begin next week.
