Vanderbilt led 7-0 and 10-7, also getting the ball with a chance to go up by 10 points. Kyle Trask didn’t get his usual four touchdowns, having to settle for just three. Florida’s defense was, well, Florida’s defense.
And it all still added up to a relatively relaxed win for the Gators in Nashville, as they moved to 6-1 by a 38-17 score.
Trask completed 26 of 35 passes and threw for 383 yards and three touchdowns, snapping a streak of games with four or more touchdown passes that dated to the first game of his spectacular season and extending a string of 300-yard games to five.
