Following the Gators’ hard fought 38-27 win over South Carolina on Saturday, starting Florida quarterback Kyle Trask spoke to the media after the game and gave us the reason for shushing the crowd in Columbia.
Trask mimicked Feleipe Franks’, but at least this wasn’t towards our own crowd. Trask put a finger over his mouth, shushing the South Carolina crowd after scoring a touchdown during the fourth quarter.
“I had to do one for Franks right there,” Trask said afterward.
The Gators’ went hot during the fourth quarter, scoring three touchdowns in the student-section end zone. One of the three turned out to be a controversial call that looked to be offensive pass interference, which led to towels and bottles being thrown onto the field.
“I loved it,” said Trask, who replaced an injured Franks last month. “This is what you play for, come into a hostile environment and take and earn everything that’s on the field. We love playing games like this. And I’m really proud of how our guys came together there at the end and executed at a high level.”
