  UF players say they win or lose as a team. That there is no finger-pointing following the loss at Texas A&M on Saturday. Florida quarterback Kyle Trask said the Gators aren't going to be playing the blame game in the wake of Saturday's loss to Texas A&M, a game where the defense melted down and the offense had a turnover that led to the winning field goal on the last play of the game. "The last thing you want to do is finger point," Trask said Monday. "You're still on the same team. The game on Saturday's was a game that we should have won. Just a few plays decided it. If we just play clean football there at the end, we're 3-0 right now. "We're just going to reflect on the game and how we can keep improving. It's just going to make us stronger and better."

Trask said there's no feeling among the offensive players that the Gators need to score on every possession in order to win games. "If that's how you feel, you end up pointing fingers at each other and that's not how our team is," he said. "It was either a win or a loss in the column as a team, together. "Our goal is to score on every single drive. It doesn't have anything to do with how (our defense) is performing. We don't want to just play good enough to win. We want to play to our standards. If we score on every single drive, we'll beat anybody we play." - Gainesville Sun

  Quarterback Kyle Trask had four more touchdown passes against South Carolina, which is a good thing. He also had two turnovers - a fumble and an interception - and that's not a good thing. Those turnovers have caught his attention. "Definitely, I can't put the ball on the ground. It's unacceptable. Just eliminating those, you know, those little things, those little small plays, turnovers, things like that. Just to play as consistent as I possibly can, it's just my goal every week." Both of his turnovers were turned into touchdowns by the Gamecocks. - Gainesville Sun

  Kyle Trask and Kyle Pitts hooked up for two more touchdowns, continuing their hot start and leading No. 3 Florida to a 38-24 victory over South Carolina on Saturday. Trask completed 21 of 29 passes for 268 yards, with four touchdowns and an interception. His second-quarter fumble kept the Gamecocks (0-2) in the game early. Pitts finished with four receptions for 57 yards, commanding extra attention and beating South Carolina's top defenders. He nearly made a one-handed catch in the third quarter, but the ball slipped off his left fingertips. The K2K connection now has six touchdowns in two games, one more than it notched in 2019. The next performance comes at Kyle Field, where Texas A&M will try to become the first Southeastern Conference opponent to slow down Trask and Pitts in 2020.

Some thought former Florida coach Will Muschamp and his Gamecocks would find a way. But the Gators (2-0) had their way with South Carolina for three quarters in front of 15,120 socially distant fans in the Swamp. They finished with 347 yards and punted twice. Kadarius Toney put an exclamation point on the victory with a 57-yard touchdown catch late in the third. He somehow broke through three defenders, turning a 7-yard catch into Florida's biggest gain. He ended with six receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown to go along with 42 yards on two punt returns. - Florida/AP College Football

  Mullen believes in this coronavirus-impaired 2020, with no spring practice, offenses might get the jump this season. The opening SEC weekend featured a combined 4,204 passing yards in seven games, including Trask throwing for 416 yards and six touchdowns, a UF record in an SEC road game. "Kyle has improved from last year, his mechanics were beautiful the other day," Spurrier said of Trask. "I mean, three-quarter overhand [throws], almost a perfect spiral every ball, his footwork. Man, he looked good. Kyle is such a good, quiet leader, a lot like [1996 Heisman Trophy winner] Danny Wuerffel and quarterbacks that sort of lead by example. "Players really love the guy and that builds team chemistry because he gives credit to teammates and coaches. As a coach, he's the kind of guy you hope you have as a quarterback." It's not just Trask. The Gators, despite losing four receivers to the NFL, may have one of the more prolific offenses in college football because tight end Kyle Pitts (8 catches, 171 yards, 4 TDs) is a huge weapon. During his 12 seasons as the Gators' coach, Spurrier never had a tight end who was remotely close to Pitts as a matchup nightmare. - Gainesville Sun

  Kyle Pitts caught four of Kyle Trask's six touchdown passes and No. 5 Florida spoiled the head coaching debut of Mississippi's Lane Kiffin with a 51-35 victory Saturday. Trask completed 30 of 42 passes for 416 yards including touchdown passes of 1, 16, 71 and 17 yards to Pitts. The star tight end had 170 yards receiving. Trask directed four consecutive touchdown drives that spanned the second and third quarters to build a 41-14 lead for the Gators (1-0 Southeastern Conference).

Kiffin, the former Tennessee and USC head coach who came to Ole Miss from FAU, had the Rebels' offense humming with Matt Corral at quarterback. Corral completed 22 of 31 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns passes, two to Dontario Drummond. But they couldn't stop the Gators. Ole Miss (0-1) tied it at 14 midway through the second quarter before yielding to the Trask-led Florida outburst. The teams combined for 1,255 yards of total offense, including 642 by the Gators. Trevon Grimes and Kedarius Toney had touchdown receptions of 22 and 16 yards respectively, for Florida. Jerrion Ealy had two touchdown runs for the Rebels. - AP College Football

  Even though Kyle Trask was just "OK" in Monday night's scrimmage, Florida coach Dan Mullen said his starting quarterback has clearly made strides in his development since last season. "He was OK. I don't think yesterday was his best day," Mullen said Tuesday. "But he has improved (his footwork, accuracy and decision making). You're always going to have little off days here and there. I thought he was a little crisper in scrimmage one. "We gave him a little bit more work yesterday than we did in scrimmage one as we continue to build up and get ready to go. But I have seen him improve - his decision making, his leadership, and we're putting a lot more on him right now. He has really improved the speed of how he decides things and just, obviously, which is a big one, his knowledge of the game."

Mullen said Trask has almost become like another coach, sitting in on game plan meetings and offering his input about what plays he thinks will and won't work. "He comes and spends extra time in game plan meetings," Mullen said. "He wants to sit in knowing we're meeting. He wants to sit around. As a grad student, it helps he has a little more time on his hands. He's always around the office. He'll have input just because of his experience and he's played and he knows he has input on the game plan. "On top of that he has a lot of control at the line of scrimmage. He has a lot of freedom to call his own calls, call plays and check in to plays at the line of scrimmage." - Times Union

  No one knows yet whether there will be a college football season in 2020. But just about everyone has a pretty good idea what the financial impact will be if there isn't one. It would be devastating, potentially crippling, for schools across the country. At the University of Florida, football is the financial engine that drives the athletic department and its overall 21 sports teams. In the 2019 fiscal year, football generated a profit of $47,950,819, while men's basketball was the only other sport with a profit, bringing in $2,455,291. The 19 other programs finished the year $33,528,175 in the red. So, a season without football could deliver a dire financial blow to UF. But, for now, the University Athletic Association isn't plotting strategy and bracing for a potential financial crisis in the fall, and possibly beyond. UF is preparing as if the football season will go on as scheduled, starting on Sept. 5 in The Swamp vs. Eastern Washington.

It's not necessarily a bold or optimistic strategy. It's a matter of following the advice SEC commissioner Greg Sankey passed on to the league's 14 schools two weeks ago: "Our responsibility right now is to prepare for what's next, and what's next is the upcoming season," he said. So, at this stage, the Gators are planning for football in the fall, with the idea that fans will be in the stands. "Obviously, there is a lot of speculation out there," UF athletic director Scott Stricklin said. "If Sept. 5 comes and we're expected to be hosting people, we need to be prepared to do that. We can always adjust (to not having fans). - Gainesville Sun

  After going 21-5 and leading the Florida Gators to consecutive New Year's Six bowl games in his first two seasons in Gainesville, head football coach Dan Mullen is due a raise and a contract extension. He's going to get both. It's just a matter of when now. UF athletic director Scott Stricklin said last week that he's been in discussions with Mullen's agent about a contract extension, but does not have a timetable for closing the deal. "I don't know," Stricklin said. "I expect Dan to be here a long time."

There were indications from Stricklin and Mullen at the end of the 2019 regular season in December that a contract extension and raise would be coming for Mullen. At that time Mullen's name had come up as a possible candidate for several NFL jobs, mainly Dallas, where the Cowboys' quarterback is Dak Prescott, who Mullen coached and developed at Mississippi State. Mullen said he was flattered by the perceived interest from the NFL and considered it a compliment, but had no intention of leaving UF at this stage of his coaching career. "I know what I have here," Mullen said in December. "I love being here. I think we're building a championship program here. - Gainesville Sun

  Florida receiver Kadarius Toney stopped in the end zone, struck a pose and pointed to the scoreboard as Florida State players walked by. He was taunting the rival Seminoles -- at halftime. The game was essentially over at that point, and everyone knew it. Kyle Trask threw three first-half touchdown passes, including two to Freddie Swain, and the eighth-ranked Gators hammered the Seminoles 40-17 to end a four-game, home losing streak in the series. "That's bragging rights for your neighbors," said Florida's Dan Mullen, who improved to 6-0 in his coaching career against FSU. The Gators (10-2, No. 11 CFP) locked up consecutive 10-win seasons for the first time in a decade, finished unbeaten at home for the first time in four years and celebrated their first winning streak against FSU since 2009.

Florida scored touchdowns on four of its first five possessions, needing two fourth-down conversions to get the first two, and was able to start celebrating long before the final seconds ticked off the clock. "I think it was just a big statement for us," Trask said. "We haven't been getting a whole lot of respect around the country." Pass-happy and pretty much one-dimensional, Florida picked apart FSU's beleaguered defense -- a rarity in a series that typically features stout defenses. Trask completed 30 of 41 passes for 343 yards, including two short ones to Swain that went for scores. One of 22 seniors recognized before their home finale, Swain caught a screen pass, waited for a block, split two defenders and sprinted 19 yards to cap the opening drive. He made it 20-7 in the second quarter when he broke a tackle near the sideline, outran one defender and bowled through another at the goal line. - Florida/AP College Football

  Kyle Trask threw two touchdown passes after a sluggish first half by No. 11 Florida and the Gators beat Missouri 23-6 on Saturday. Trask completed 23 of 35 passes for 282 yards. That was plenty of offense for Florida (9-2, 6-2 Southeastern Conference), which held Missouri to 204 total yards. Linebacker Jon Greenard spent most of the day in the Tigers' backfield, finishing with two sacks and five tackles for loss. The Tigers (5-5, 2-4) have lost four straight games and haven't scored a touchdown in the last two. Florida led 6-3 after a first half in which the teams combined for 10 punts. The Gators struggled up front offensively in the first half, allowing four sacks to a team that had only 14 sacks on the season entering the game. They gained just 29 yards on the ground before intermission and finished with 56 rushing yards.

It was a similar story for Missouri, which welcomed Kelly Bryant back at quarterback after he missed last week's game at Georgia with a hamstring injury. Bryant repeatedly slipped out of the arms of blitzers to extend plays, but the Tigers struggled to put drives together without any help from its running game. Bryant completed 25 of 38 passes for 204 yards and one interception. Missouri's only scores came on two Tucker McCann field goals. The Gators finally got going in the third quarter when Trask connected with Josh Hammond for a 34-yard touchdown pass and hit Lamical Perine for a 15-yard TD. Van Jefferson finished with six catches for 82 yards, and Trevon Grimes had three catches for 66 yards. - AP College Football

  Kyle Trask didn't really know what to call his first touchdown pass of the day. He thought about it for a few seconds before settling on "kind of a free throw shot." If so, his last two scores were breakaways dunks. Trask threw for a career-high 363 yards and three touchdowns -- the best passing performance by a Florida quarterback since Tim Tebow's college finale -- and the 10th-ranked Gators overcame a lackluster start to thump Vanderbilt 56-0 Saturday. "I think we could have put up a lot more," Trask said. Florida (8-2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) was sluggish early, failing to convert a fourth down on the opening possession against the league's worst defense, missing a field goal and throwing two interceptions.

It looked like another version of the "Cocktail Party Hangover," which seems to happen every year after losing to rival Georgia in the game dubbed the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." But the Gators responded with their most dominant quarter of the season, turning a 14-0 lead into a laugher in the Swamp. They ended up outgaining Vanderbilt 560-128 and winning their sixth straight in the series and 28th in the last 29 years overall. "It was a good feeling to get the bad taste out of our mouths," said safety Donovan Stiner, who had two interceptions in Florida's third shutout of the season. Trask completed 25 of 37 passes, with TD passes to Lamical Perine, Trevon Grimes and Kyle Pitts. The junior also ran for a score before giving way to Emory Jones. - Florida/AP College Football

  For three quarters, Kyle Trask saw the overthrows and ineffective runs, the penalties and missed assignments. He knew something had to change. It finally did. Trask threw three of his career-high four touchdowns in the final period Saturday to rally the No. 9 Gators to a 38-27 win at South Carolina. Trask, sensing the game slipping away, told his teammates: "This isn't us." He then helped the Gators (7-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) avoid a second straight loss after falling at No. 2 LSU 42-28 last week. "We found our identity and started making plays," he said.

This season, the identity of Florida's offense is very much in Trask's hands. The redshirt junior, starting because of an injury to Feleipe Franks, has led the Gators to their best start since 2015. After a week off, Trask will bring Florida to a final, defining stretch with games against No. 10 Georgia, Vanderbilt and SEC East-leading Missouri in the chase for a spot in the SEC title game. Things didn't look promising through the third quarter. South Carolina (3-4, 2-3) held Florida in check and took a 20-17 lead in trying for its second consecutive win over a top 10 opponent after beating then-No. 3 Georgia in double overtime last week. "We have a very resilient team," Trask said. "We're never going to panic, no matter the situation." - Florida/AP College Football

  Florida quarterback Kyle Trask said his sprained knee is "progressing along nicely." Trask was wearing a compression sleeve and a brace on his left knee Monday, two days after injuring it on a play coach Dan Mullen now regrets calling "dirty" during a 24-13 victory over then-No. 7 Auburn. Trask said the pain is subsiding and he expects it to feel even better by the time the Gators (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) play at fifth-ranked LSU (5-0, 1-0) on Saturday night. "It's definitely better today than it's been," he said. "It's been getting better every single day. The pain is kind of going away now."

Trask injured his knee on a low hit by Auburn defensive lineman Marlon Davidson, who was shoved into Trask by left tackle Stone Forsythe. Mullen was critical of Davidson at halftime, telling CBS that "hopefully the league really tries to keep quarterbacks safe from dirty plays." Mullen backed off his comments slightly after the game, but conceded Monday that he shouldn't have used the word "dirty." "Maybe the use of that word, maybe that wasn't the right word at the time," Mullen said. "I don't think that was being coached or there was intent to go injure him on that play. I think that's something, when you look at player safety, we've got to really pay attention. I know as a league everyone wants to preach player safety, player safety, player safety. Talk about it, but what are we doing about it?" Mullen added that the play would have been flagged in the NFL, which has stricter rules about hitting quarterbacks high and low. - AP College Football

  Kyle Trask threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, helping No. 9 Florida beat lower-division Towson 38-0 Saturday and extend its winning streak to nine. Trask set a school record in the process. The junior making his second collegiate start completed 15 consecutive passes to open the game, giving him 18 straight completions and breaking Chris Leak's mark (17) set against Wyoming in 2005. Trask's hot streak ended with an incompletion to Jacob Copeland early in the third quarter. He responded with a perfect throw to Kyle Pitts in the corner of the end zone for his second TD pass of the afternoon.

Trask finished 18-of-20 passing for 188 yards, giving way to Emory Jones in the fourth quarter. Trask showed progress by not having any turnovers. He threw two interceptions and lost a fumble in his first start , against Tennessee. He was considerably more efficient, as expected, against the overmatched Tigers (3-2). The Gators (5-0) need it to continue as they begin a daunting October against seventh-ranked Auburn next week. Although Florida won the game and covered the 35 1/2-point spread, it also struggled to run the ball early. Coach Dan Mullen's team mustered 60 yards on 16 carries in the first half. Towson moved the ball well, meanwhile, ending its first two drives with a fumble and a missed field goal. - Florida/AP College Football

  Kyle Trask threw for 293 yards and two touchdowns in his first start in nearly seven years and No. 9 Florida beat slumping Tennessee 34-3 Saturday, extending the Gators' dominance in a series that used to be the most prominent in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division. Trask's first collegiate start was far from perfect, though. The fourth-year junior lost a fumble and threw two interceptions against the Volunteers (1-3, 0-1 SEC) But he did enough to overcome those miscues and lead Florida (4-0, 2-0) to its 14th win in its last 15 games against Tennessee. Trask completed 20 of 28 passes, none better than the ones that went for touchdowns to Kyle Pitts and Freddie Swain.

Trask connected with Pitts for a 19-yard score on the opening drive of the game and then hooked up with Swain for a 29-yarder to cap Florida's first possession of the second half. Not bad for a backup. Trask played behind current Houston starter D'Eriq King at Manvel (Texas) High for three seasons and spent the last three years behind Feleipe Franks, who gruesomely dislocated and fractured his right ankle in a 29-21 victory at Kentucky last weekend. Trask last started a game in 2012 for Manvel's freshman A team. Tennessee's performance was mostly a debacle, especially early. - Florida/AP College Football

  Kyle Trask relieved an injured Feleipe Franks and rallied No. 9 Florida with three fourth-quarter touchdown drives, including his go-ahead, 4-yard scoring run with 4:11 remaining that lifted the Gators to a 29-21 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night. Franks, the Gators' third-year starter, was carted off with a right leg injury late in the third quarter with his team trailing 21-10. Stopped for no gain on fourth-and-1 at the Kentucky 38, Franks appeared to bend backward on the play. Medical personnel placed an inflatable cast under his right leg and he was taken off to applause from the sellout crowd. Trask entered and led Florida (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) on a 62-yard drive, ending with Lamical Perine's 8-yard TD run to get the Gators within 21-16.

Shawn Davis's interception with 6:05 to go gave the Gators another opportunity, and Trask capitalized with his go-ahead touchdown. The two-point conversion failed, though, and Kentucky (2-1, 0-1) had a final chance to regain the lead. But Chance Poore's 35-yard field-goal attempt with 54 seconds left was wide right, and Josh Hammond's 76-yard TD run three plays later helped Florida avenge last year's loss in Gainesville. Sawyer Smith accounted for all three Kentucky touchdowns with scoring passes of 26 and 13 yards sandwiched around his 2-yard run. Making his first Kentucky start a week after Terry Wilson was lost for the season with a torn left patellar tendon, the junior completed his first nine passes for 119 yards. He finished 23 of 35 passing for 267 yards, but also threw three interceptions. - Florida/AP College Football
