Kyle Pitts has 6 receiving TD so far this season.
That’s tied for the 2nd-most over a 2-game span by an SEC player over the last 25 seasons.

Kyle Pitts should be near the top of anyone’s Heisman Trophy list through five weeks of this season. Never know if it’s going to last, but there’s no question what he has already done and how impossible he looks to cover. #Gators
