GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jeff Driskel threw four touchdown passes -- three of them after turnovers -- and No. 3 Florida matched its win total from last season with a 44-11 drubbing of ninth-ranked South Carolina on Saturday.

The Gators avenged consecutive losses to the Gamecocks, including one two years ago that ended with Steve Spurrier and his players celebrating a division title in The Swamp.

Florida's latest whatever-it-takes win kept coach Will Muschamp's team undefeated and put it on the cusp of the Southeasten Conference's Eastern Division title. The Gators (7-0, 6-0 SEC) can clinch a spot in the SEC championship game by beating No. 13 Georgia next week in nearby Jacksonville.

Florida won this one with turnovers, stellar defense and more halftime adjustments -- the kind of successful tweaks that are making Muschamp and his staff seem like the right fit in Gainesville.

South Carolina (6-2, 4-2) lost its second straight.
