Florida has scored 40-plus points in their past three games. They also scored 51 points over the Ole Miss Rebels in the season opener.

The Razorbacks were without head coach Sam Pittman, who tested positive for the coronavirus. Pittman is being replaced on an interim basis by Barry Odom, the former Missouri Tigers head coach, who is on Pittman’s staff.

Like Pittman, Gators head coach Dan Mullen had a bout with the coronavirus, as well.

Gators Heisman Trophy candidate Kyle Trask went 23 of 29 for 356 yards. He also had six touchdown passes.

Dameon Pierce had 12 carries for 69 yards. Trevon Grimes had six receptions for 109 yards and two touchdowns.

Former Gator and current Razorbacks quarterback Feleipe Franks went 15 of 19 for 250 yards in his return to The Swamp. He had two touchdown passes.

In September 2019, Franks suffered a season-ending injury against the Kentucky Wildcats. Trask then came in and led the Gators to a 29-21 come-from-behind win.

Trelon Smith had 8 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown. Mike Woods had two receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns.

Grimes and Keon Zipperer led the Gators with two touchdowns each. Justin Shorter, Jacob Cleveland, and Xzavier Henderson also touchdown receptions.

Emory Jones had a rushing touchdown. Zachary Carter returned a fumble for a touchdown return, as well.

Mike Woods had his aforementioned two touchdowns for the Razorbacks. Smith, Rakeem Boyd, and R.J. Jefferson also had rushing touchdowns.
