Trask tosses 6 TDs, No. 6 Gators rout Arkansas

In a game full of big plays, No. 6 Florida rode the arm of quarterback Kyle Trask to a 63-35 win over the visiting Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday night.

Trask threw five of his six touchdown passes in the first half as the Gators (5-1) built a 35-14 lead. Trask finished the game having completed 23 of 29 passes for 356 yards, with 285 of those yards in a wild first half.

Trask left the game early in the fourth quarter with Florida leading by 35 points. He became the first player in Florida history to throw six passing touchdowns in multiple games in a season. He has 28 touchdown passes on the season.

Senior Trevon Grimes and sophomore Keon Zipperer caught two touchdown passes each. Jacob Copeland and Justin Shorter also caught scoring passes. The second touchdown pass to a wide-open Grimes went for 23 yards on a busted coverage by the Razorbacks, who had a difficult time covering the Gators’ receivers downfield.

Shorter made a highlight reel catch against good coverage with 7:17 left in the second quarter, giving the Gators a 21-7 lead. Florida had time for two more scores before the half, including a touchdown pass to Zipperer with 17 seconds left.

The Razorbacks (3-4) got their 14 first-half points on a pair of big plays, the first being a 47-yard touchdown pass from former Gators quarterback Feleipe Franks to Mike Woods in the first quarter. Then Trelon Smith broke free for an 83-yard run with 6:55 left in the second half.

Rakeem Boyd added a 12-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter for Arkansas.

Arkansas was without its head coach, Sam Pittman, who could not be with the team after testing positive for COVID-19 last Sunday.

Florida has scored at least 38 points in every game this season, even in their lone loss, 41-38 to then-No. 5 Texas A&M last month.

The Gators played without one of their top offensive weapons, tight end Kyle Pitts, who was out with a concussion.

Franks finished 15 of 19 for 250 yards and two scores. He hit Woods for an 82-yard touchdown pass play in the fourth quarter.
