COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Nothing about Kyle Trask’s path to becoming Florida’s starting quarterback was easy. Something as trivial as a sluggish first half doesn’t rattle him.
Trask threw two touchdown passes in the third quarter to help No. 11 Florida shake free of Missouri 23-6 on Saturday.
The former high school backup, who took over for the Gators after an injury to Feleipe Franks earlier this season, 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.
