Franks was an impressive 15-of-19 passing for 250 yards and 2 touchdowns but was outshined by his 2016 classmate, Kyle Trask. The Florida redshirt senior boosted his Heisman Trophy campaign with an eye-popping 6 TD passes, going 23-of-259 for 356 yards in the Gators’ 63-35 win over Franks’ Arkansas Razorbacks.
Franks signed with UF in 2016, redshirting his first year on campus. He played in 28 games for the Gators over 3 seasons (2017-19) before departing as a graduate transfer.
