Gators now own the FBS record for longest scoring streak ever

  The Gators are now the sole owners of an offense-centric FBS streak.

With a 25-yard Eddy Pineiro field goal in the second quarter of Saturday’s game vs. LSU, No. 21 Florida set a new FBS record: They haven’t been shut out in 366 games.

That's a lot of games!

The last time the Gators played a football game without scoring a single point — no safeties, no field goals, no touchdowns, nothing — was Oct. 29, 1988, when then-No. 9 Auburn took the Gators down 16-0 in Week 9 of the season. Florida, 5-3 after the loss, went on to win the All-American Bowl over Illinois that year.

Since that game — which was a staggering 10,751 days ago — Florida football has done plenty.

Here are just a few numbers:

6

The number of head coaches (Galen Hall, Steve Spurrier, Ron Zook, Urban Meyer, Will Muschamp, Jim McElwain), as well as three interim head coaches (Gary Darnell, Charlie Strong, D.J. Durkin).

26

The number of bowl game appearances, going 14-12 in those appearances, including two BCS championship game wins.

14

The number of seasons with at least 10 wins, including five with at least 12 wins.

In other words, it’s been a very long time since Florida failed to score a point in a football game.

The Gators trail LSU 10-3 at the half Saturday afternoon, but they trail no FBS team in avoiding shutouts.

Saturday's college basketball upsets (and near-upsets) showed again why pandemonium is this season's norm

It’s no news that college basketball is one big wad of fickle fate this season. On Jan. 18, six top-25 teams were hammered by double digits against unranked opponents, which had never happened on the same day in the 71-year history of the AP poll.
