Muschamp, Florida Taking Chances On 4th Down

GAINESVILLE (AP) — Florida coach Will Muschamp is taking a few extra chances these days.

And it's working.

A week after seizing momentum against Southeastern Conference rival Georgia with a fake field goal, the Gators went for it on fourth-and-goal at the Vanderbilt 1-yard line on consecutive drives in the second quarter Saturday.

The first one failed, but the second one turned out to be the game-winner in a 34-10 victory.

Center Max Garcia says "we're going to go out there and laying it all on the line."

Muschamp joked after beating Georgia that he's "a risky guy." He has been lately. Maybe it's because his job remains in jeopardy. Or maybe it's because his offense has been inconsistent and he's starting a freshman at quarterback.

Either way, the results validate Muschamp's decisions.
