GAINESVILLE, Florida (Ticker) -- Florida was impressive in winning the national championship last season. But this year, the Gators are taking domination to a whole new level.

The top-ranked Gators go for their 15th straight win Saturday when they square off with Chattanooga in a non-conference matchup.

Florida has won 23 straight games against non-conference opponents following its comfortable 90-61 victory over Jacksonville on Thursday. Al Horford and Joakim Noah combined to score 31 of their 34 points in the first half, when the Gators made 17 straight shots en route to a 56-20 halftime advantage.

Walter Hodge chipped in 11 points and Corey Brewer had seven assists for Florida, which has won 16 straight games in November. The Gators have won their three games this season by a combined 100 points.

Chattanooga is coming off a 71-70 overtime loss to East Tennessee State on Wednesday despite 26 points from Keddric Mays, who is averaging 22 points on the season.

Nicchaeus Doaks added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Mocs, who lost on a 3-pointer by Courtney Pigram with less than two seconds left in overtime.
