Jalen Kimber made his first college interception go for 6 points, clubbed hand and all.

Kimber, a third-year defensive back in his first season at Florida, picked off USF QB Gerry Bohanon in the second quarter of Saturday night’s game. He returned it 39 yards for a touchdown, extending No. 18 Florida’s lead to double digits over USF.

After 2 seasons at Georgia, Kimber entered the transfer portal and elected to continue his career at Florida. Kimber played in 1 game for UGA in 2021, missing the rest of UGA’s championship campaign due to a shoulder injury. In 2020, Kimber played in 2 games.

Kimber and the Gators lead USF 24-13 at the half. USF has been able to run on UF with ease for 216 yards, but the Bulls’ passing attack is limited to 56 yards on 39% completions (7-of-18). The game is airing on the SEC Network.
