The NFL Week 6: Defenseless Florida Kicker Seth Small congratulated by his teammates on the field goal of the Texas A&M victory.
Focus on a 2020 season, to say the least, in College Football. Many college stars have already announced that they will be skipping Fiscal Year 2020 to sign up for the next draft. The updated list can be found at the end of this article.
But where has the Gators defense gone? Already a lot in demand from Ole Miss and against South Carolina, Todd Grantham's squad literally took water from all sides, at College Station, under the battering of Texas A&M quarterback, Kellen Mond (25/38, 338 yards, 3 TD) and its partners. The first period will be an exchange of offensive politeness, each series being sanctioned by points, five of the six by a touchdown.
At this little game, on Kyle Field, the two namesakes of the Florida attack are having a blast. Kyle Trask (23/32, 312 yards, 4 TD) finds Kyle Pitts entry for the tight end’s sixth personal touchdown. As much in three matches as in his first two seasons (!). But A&M has resources and finds himself a great receiver during the revolt. Sophomore Caleb Chapman (151 yards, 2 TD) made Gainesville's rearguard dizzy, pushed the chains forward on his first drive and even finished the second with a touchdown. At the break, Florida leads 21-17, but each team surrenders.
Dan Mullen’s men believe they have made a significant gap, coming back from the locker room, on one of two touchdowns from supersonic receiver Kadarius Toney (17-28). But the Texas ground game awakens the locals, with the incessant hammer blows of Ainias Smith and Isaiah Spiller (174 yards, 2 TD), author of the touchdown at the end of the series. The Gators find themselves in a similar situation in the middle of the fourth when they lead 38 to 31. But it is this time in the air that Kellen Mond cuts the number 4 of the AP Top 25 with a final cross which finds Caleb Chapman on 51 yards (38-38).
Florida instantly gave up two breaks and will not recover. With 3 minutes remaining, and very close to 50, running back Malik Davis commits a fumble which will prove fatal. Because Isaiah Spiller comes out of the hat to bring A & M as close as possible to the ground and facilitate the kick of victory for Seth Small, 26 yards.
If Florida has fallen, Georgia (3) still falls between the drops in the SEC East. But the Bulldogs were still pushed against a valiant team from Tennessee (14). It was only in the second period that Stetson Bennett's partners (238 yards passing, 2 TD) made the difference, supported by an iron defense games.
