The extra point was successful, extending Florida’s to 10-0 in the first quarter.
Hill, out of Huntsville, Alabama, is in his fourth year with the Gators. He has dealt with multiple injuries over the past 21 months.
After taking a medical redshirt for 2021 and missing the start of the 2022 season, Hill finally returned to play for UF’s Week 5 game against Eastern Washington. He got a starting spot at cornerback for Saturday’s game against Mizzou.
Florida is still up 10-0 in the second quarter. The game is currently airing on ESPNU.
