GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Chris Rainey ran for 119 yards and a touchdown, Caleb Sturgis kicked three field goals after the offense bogged down and No. 18 Florida beat UAB 39-0 Saturday night.

The Gators (2-0) dominated both sides of the lines of scrimmage for the second consecutive week and finished their early tune-ups by outgaining their opponents 979 yards to 349.

Next up: Southeastern Conference rival Tennessee. The Volunteers should provide more of a test for a team with plenty of unanswered questions on both sides of the ball. This much is certain: Rainey is clearly the team's top playmaker.

A week after becoming the first player in school history to score touchdowns rushing, receiving and on a return, Rainey was even better against the Blazers (0-1).
