Kyle Trask shines again as Florida soundly defeats Vanderbilt

Trask had yet another brilliant performance in the Gators’ victory over the Commodores

NCAA Football: Florida at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY

Kyle Trask tossed three touchdowns as his sterling 2020 season continued on Saturday. Trask’s Florida Gators soundly defeated the Vanderbilt Commodores, who are still without a tally in the win column as we’ve broken through mid-November.

Trask’s three touchdown day meant that he accumulated more touchdowns through the first seven games of an SEC season. His 31 touchdowns this season have set the pace and then some in the SEC and in the nation as well, as his performances are certainly making him one of the frontrunners for the Heisman Trophy.

Kadarius Toney, Trevon Grimes and Kemore Gamble caught the touchdowns from Trask, coming in the first, second and third quarters. Gamble also caught a TD from backup quarterback Emory Jones, who closed things out over halfway through the fourth quarter. The other touchdown on the day from Florida was picked up by Dameon Pierce, who plowed into the end zone on a one yard rush early in the third quarter.

Vanderbilt put up a pretty decent effort in a loss. Obviously, you’d like for them to net what would’ve been their first win of the season. But they were fortunate enough at least to not get the doors blown off. The offense, at times, looked fine and competitive but they just were not able to make enough plays. Ken Seals did throw two touchdowns to Chris Pierce, so Seals was able to have that going for him at the very least.

Assuming everything is able to hold still, Florida will host the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday and Vanderbilt will play host to the Tennessee Volunteers.
