First Downs

The Gators controlled the ball last night with long scoring drives time and again. In doing so they accumulated 36 first downs. I don’t know what the record is for a UofA opponent, but that is an astonishing statistic.

That appears to be a record. Misery got 35 first downs against us in 2017. Our record is 37 against TCU in 1980, by the way; we won 44-7 that day.

Found one other eyepopping stat while I was looking for that record. The '77 team that won the Orange Bowl played in a completely different era, of course, but do you know how many TD passes it allowed in 12 games?
