No. 10 Florida should be on upset alert vs. Toledo

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 10 Florida ought to be on upset alert.

Toledo has played in three consecutive bowl games and has seven wins against ranked teams, including one against then-No. 21 Cincinnati last season.

Arguably more important is how the Gators have fared against teams outside the six power conferences the last two years.

That recent history shows the Rockets, a 23 1/2-point underdog heading into Saturday's season opener, have a chance in the Swamp.

Florida trailed lower-division Furman 22-7 in the second quarter before rallying in 2011. The Gators were tied with Bowling Green at 14 in the third quarter to open last season before scoring the game's final 13 points.

Florida endured a closer call against Louisiana last November, needing a blocked punt in the final seconds to win.
