Lamical Perine had a 74-yard touchdown run as Florida rushed for 278 yards, averaging 5.3 yards per carry.

Perine led all rushers with 129 yards on the ground and Grimes led all receivers with 118 yards on five catches.

In addition to the 36-year bowl streak, Florida State saw its 42-year run of finishing.500 or better also come to an end.

The Seminoles' 2006 Emerald Bowl appearance against USC was vacated.

The Gators' win snapped Florida State's five-game winning streak in the rivalry, and also ended the Seminoles' 36-year run of reaching a bowl game.

Florida coach Dan Mullen wanted to prevent a postgame kerfuffle after the Gators beat Florida State on Saturday. After clearing up any possible flag-planting, he rejoined ESPN's Tom Luginbill to conclude the interview.

Should such a plan go ahead, it may deter people from attempting to migrate to the US from Central America via Mexico. But, Sanchez said on Saturday that the next government does not plan for Mexico to become a "Safe Third" country.

On the next series, the Gators defense stripped Francois has he was preparing to throw the ball and one play later, Felepie Franks found Trevon Grimes for a 22-yard touchdown pass to extend the lead to 27-7.

Franks, who grew up just 20 miles south of Doak Campbell Stadium in Crawfordville, completed 16 of 26 passes for 254 yards.

The Noles, on the other hand, mustered 293 yards of total offense, 154 of which came via the air as Francois completed 14 of his 29 attempts for a touchdown and two interceptions.

That distance between Florida State and the programs that it considers to be peers and rivals was apparent against the Gators.

Florida State: The Seminoles were undone this season by mistakes and that was the case again on Saturday. Florida State is among the most penalized teams in the country, its offensive line continues to be a liability and it has been out-classed when facing elite opponents.

Former Florida State quarterback Danny Kanell isn't happy.
