Florida is welcoming back a former Gator standout for Saturday’s rivalry tilt with No. 11 Tennessee. The team announced this week that Trey Burton will serve as the honorary Mr. Two Bits on Saturday night in The Swamp.

Burton’s 4-year Florida career came to a close in 2013, the same season UF began the honorary Mr. Two Bits tradition. The late George Edmondson startd Florida’s Two Bits cheer in 1949. He retired in 2008, passing away in 2019. UF mascot Albert the Alligator led the on-field cheer in the immediate seasons following Edmondson’s retirement.

Burton brought a unique skill set to Gainesville, playing quarterback, tailback, fullback, wideout, slot and tight end during his Gator career. As a freshman, Burton broke Tim Tebow’s school record for touchdowns in a game with 6 scores in a 48-14 win over Kentucky. The following season, Burton played a key role in Florida’s 37-20 victory at Tennessee, recording rushing touchdowns of 14 and 80 yards.

Despite going undrafted in 2014, Burton played 7 seasons in the NFL. Outside of Gator Nation, Burton is best remembered for the “Philly Special” touchdown pass he threw to Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles in the team’s Super Bowl LII win over the New England Patriots.

Saturday’s SEC East showdown is set for 7 p.m. ET, airing on ESPN.
