Florida 56, Hawaii 10

<b>WHERE: </b> Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
<b>THE BUZZ: </b>It took 18 minutes to score, but eventually the Gators showcased their elite speed that became a theme for the entire year. Six of the Gators' eight touchdowns were scores of 30 or more yards.   
<b>KEY PLAY: </b>A 74-yard punt return by Brandon James in the second quarter to begin his stake as the country's best return man. James has four career punt returns for touchdowns, tied for the school record.  
<b>STARS: </b>This was a coming-out party for running backs Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, who each scored their first career touchdowns, including a 62-yard blazer by Demps, arguably the country's fastest player. Demps and Rainey combined for more than 1,200 yards this year. 
<b>STATS: </b>Florida scored 56 points in 26 1/2 minutes, more than two points per minute. 
<b>QUOTE: </b>“There's some guys that when they touch the ball and if you make a mistake, they can score on you. Fun to watch." -- Florida Coach <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT008535" title="Urban Meyer" href="/topic/sports/football/urban-meyer-PESPT008535.topic">Urban Meyer</a>
