Kyle Trask makes SEC history in monster first half against Georgia
The Florida offense got the upper hand on the Georgia defense in the first half, and QB Kyle Trask was a big reason for that.
The veteran quarterback was 20-for-26 passing for 341 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. He became the first quarterback in SEC history to throw at least four touchdowns in five straight games.
Trask’s play coming into the game was seen as a key to Florida pulling off the upset, and with a 38-21 lead at halftime, the Gators certainly have the momentum thanks to a late touchdown pass by Trask to Trevon Grimes.
Trask and Florida have been nearly unstoppable this season, as entering Saturday, the Gators scored on 28 of 41 drives and averaged 42 points a game. Of course, they hadn’t yet faced a defense with as much talent and depth as the Bulldogs have.
Georgia is giving up 16.2 points a game, and that includes a 41-24 loss at No. 2 Alabama last month.
The Bulldogs dealt with several injuries on defense entering the game, and suffered more in the first half, including safety Lewis Cine, who was ejected following a targeting penalty on TE Kyle Pitts on a play over the middle.
