Final: Florida 63, Arkansas 35

Behind another impressive performance by the offense, the Florida Gators throttled Arkansas by a 63-35 final score.

While the storyline heading into the game surrounded the return of Feleipe Franks to The Swamp, it was the current quarterback for the Gators that put on a show.

Kyle Trask finished 23-29 for 356 yards and six touchdown passes. Trask has firmly entrenched himself in the discussion for the Heisman Trophy.

While the Florida offense continues to hum at a high level, the defense has shown it’s stuggles to be quite real. On Arkansas’ first possession, the Hogs were facing third and long when Franks found Mike Woods, who had burned CB Kaiir Elam for a long touchdown.

Despite the occasional hiccups from the defense, the Gators rolled to victory thanks to the historic numbers the offense is putting up.

Trask has now thrown 28 touchdowns in six games.

Franks finished the game with respectable stats: 15-19, 250 yards, 2 TDs despite a chorus of boos when he took the field for the first time in the Razorbacks jersey.

In all, four Gators threw passes, eight players carried the rock, and ten players made catches in the dominant win.
