  12/31/19 - Lamical PerineSr/2020, Florida, 5-11, 211 (DS#10 RB) + More +

  Lamical Perine scored on a 61-yard run in the opening minute and didn't stop after that, totaling 181 yards rushing and receiving with three touchdowns Monday to help No. 6 Florida beat Virginia 36-28 in the Orange Bowl. Perine carried 13 times for a career-high 138 yards rushing at the end of a so-so senior season. But Perine was too quick and speedy for the Cavaliers, as his dash through their secondary on the first series showed. He also scored on a 10-yard run, caught a 16-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Trask and was chosen the game's most valuable player.

The win means Florida (11-2), led by second-year coach Dan Mullen, will likely finish in the Top Ten in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2008-09. The Cavaliers (9-5) lost their final two games, but still posted their highest win total since 2007. Trask capped a storybook junior season by throwing for 305 yards. Florida totaled 549 yards, including a season-high 244 rushing, and didn't punt until midway through the third quarter. The Cavaliers' offense tried valiantly to keep up. Bryce Perkins threw for 323 yards and four scores. - AP College Football

  2019 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DB CJ Henderson, Florida,...Junior defensive back CJ Henderson concludes the All-SEC Defensive First Team honorees for the blue and orange, totaling 33 tackles (26 solo), including 3.0 tackles for a total loss of 15 yards, and a sack on the season. Henderson leads the Gators in pass breakups, with 11 on the year, while ranking fourth among the SEC in passes defended. The Miami, Fla. native and three-year starter has been named an All-SEC selection each year with the Gators, while being named a semifinalist for this year's Paycom Jim Thorpe Award, as he will forego his final year of eligibility to enter the 2020 NFL Draft. - Florida Football

  2019 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DL Jonathan Greenard, Florida,...Greenard marks one of two Gators to feature on this year's All-SEC Defensive First Team, as Greenard's presence was certainly felt in his one year with the Gators, amassing a league-best nine sacks for a total loss of 49 yards. Greenard, a four-time SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honoree and Bednarik Award Watch List selection, has helped the Gators reach their highest sack total (46) since 1997, while being second on the team in tackles (52), including a team-high 15.0 tackles for a total loss of 64 yards.

The Hiram, Ga. native has tallied six performances of at least six tackles, highlighted by a career-high nine-tackle performance against Georgia, while recording an interception, two forced fumbles and an 80-yard fumble return for a touchdown on the season. Greenard also became the first Gator since at least 2000 to record 5.0 tackles for a loss in game after doing so against Missouri on Nov. 16. - Florida Football

  2019 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): TE Kyle Pitts, Florida,...Sophomore tight end Kyle Pitts was the lone Gator to be named to the All-SEC Offensive First Team, putting together a remarkable breakout season with a team-high 51 receptions for 610 yards, while becoming the first Gator since 2016 to haul in 50 receptions. Pitts has corralled five touchdowns on the year, good for third on the team, while he leads all tight ends among the Southeastern Conference in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. The Philadelphia, Pa. native has tallied five games with at least five receptions throughout the season, while notching five performances of over 60+ receiving yards, including a five-reception and career-high 108-yard performance against LSU on Oct. 12. Additionally, Pitts was named a Walter Camp Player of the Year semifinalist, in addition to receiving John Mackey Tight End of the Week honorable mention recognition twice this season. - Florida Football

  12/06/19 - *CJ HendersonJr/2020, Florida, 6-0, 202 (DS#2 CB) + More +

  Junior cornerback CJ Henderson, a three-year starter for the Gators, is entering the NFL Draft. An All-Southeastern Conference selection as a freshman and sophomore, Henderson announced his decision via Instagram on Friday afternoon. Henderson has played in 34 games the past three seasons and started 27. He moved into the starting lineup early in his freshman season in 2017 and gained a reputation as one of the country's top cover corners. Henderson will skip Florida's upcoming bowl game and begin preparing for April's draft.

Henderson finishes his UF career with six interceptions, 22 passes broken up, seven tackles for loss, four sacks and two forced fumbles. He missed three games this season due to an ankle sprain that forced him to the sideline for Florida's wins over Kentucky, Tennessee and Towson. In last week's 40-17 victory over Florida State, Henderson had seven tackles and one tackle for loss. A 6-foot-1, 202-pound former quarterback at Miami's Columbus High, Henderson was named second-team All-SEC as a sophomore and traveled to Indianapolis after the season to attend an NFL symposium for players who had the potential to enter the 2020 NFL Draft as juniors. - Florida Gators Football

  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

Greenard, who added one quarterback hurry in the victory, led a Gators' defensive unit that held the Tigers to just 256 yards of total offense.

  11/16/19 - Kyle TraskrSr/2021, Florida, 6-4, 239 (DS#7 QB) + More +

  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

  11/09/19 - Kyle TraskrSr/2021, Florida, 6-4, 239 (DS#7 QB) + More +

  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

  11/05/19 - Christopher BleichrSo/2023, Florida, 6-5, 330 (DS#999 OG) + More +

  Florida guard Chris Bleich, who started eight of the team's first nine games this season, has decided to transfer. Bleich entered the NCAA transfer portal Tuesday, three days after getting benched in a 24-17 loss to Georgia. Gators offensive line coach John Hevesy confirmed the redshirt freshman's exit following practice, saying "we support Chris and everything he's doing." Bleich emerged from fall camp as Florida's youngest starting offensive lineman. The 6-foot-6, 330-pounder showed his inexperience weekly, becoming a popular subject of fan criticism. He started splitting time with Richard Gouraige, who seemingly supplanted Bleich against the Bulldogs. The 10th-ranked Gators (7-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) host Vanderbilt on Saturday. With Gouraige now a starter, Florida's primary backups are true freshmen Ethan White and Michael Tarquin. - AP College Football

  Florida linebacker Jon Greenard cleared up any questions about his status for Saturday's game against No. 8 Georgia with two words: "I'm playing," he said emphatically. He'll do so with a brace and maybe a limp. Greenard badly sprained his right ankle late against Auburn on Oct. 5, tried to play the following week at LSU and lasted one series. He ended up on the bench with a towel over his head to hide his emotions. He sat out Florida's last game, a victory at South Carolina on Oct. 19, so he's had nearly three weeks to recover. "It's getting there," he said Monday. "It's good, though...I just know I'm going to be out there, and that's all that matters." It matters most to the sixth-ranked Gators (7-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference), who have to find ways to slow down running back D'Andre Swift and pressure quarterback Jake Fromm. - AP College Football
