GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Well, the season has finally come to an end. The Florida Gators close out a trying 2017 season with a 38-22 loss to Florida State on Saturday to finish 4-7.
With the loss, the Gators dropped one spot to No. 11 in the final SEC Country Power Poll of the regular season, with the 21 voters putting Florida just ahead of Arkansas and just below Ole Miss.
Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks committed four turnovers that resulted in 28 of the Seminoles’ points and spearheaded the Gators’ defeat.
“Tough loss today against Florida State, ending the season with a loss at home,” interim coach Randy Shannon said after the defeat. “You can’t win games having too many turnovers for touchdowns. That was the biggest problem in the game. We fought back in the game trying to get ourselves to end the game on some positive notes. It didn’t come out the way we wanted it to be.”
Now, the full attention shifts to the offseason and Florida’s coaching search, which looks to be over as reports came out Sunday that the Gators have reached an agreement with Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen.
