GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The Florida offense, starring the ‘Kyle to Kyle Show,” showed up Saturday for the 2020 home and Southeastern Conference opener at Spurrier/Florida Field.
For three quarters, that is.
That turned out to be enough, however, as the South Carolina Gamecocks, after displaying some moxie in making a game of what loomed as a blowout, basically ran the clock out on themselves in the fourth quarter, allowing the third-ranked Gators to get out of the “Swamp” with a 38-24 victory before a scattered and socially distanced crowd of 15,120.
Fifth-year senior quarterback Kyle Trask threw for 268 yards and four touchdowns, including a pair to junior tight end and man-child Kyle Pitts, to help UF (2-0, 2-0) build a 24-point second-half lead before USC (0-2, 0-2) threatened to make a game of things with a statistically lopsided final period.
“We’ve got to get a lot better,” Florida coach Dan Mullen said. “We certainly have to get a lot better with how we finished the game. Offensively, [we] should have finished the game much sooner.”
