Our Gators proudly opened the season before 90,227 energized fans, demolishing Nex Mexico State 61-13 in the Swamp. Our two quarterbacks, Treon Harris and Will Grier, totaled 379 passing yards and five touchdowns. The Gator offense put together a total of 606 yards of total offense.
While this was far from a perfect game, Gator execution was amazing, capped with excellent play calling, strong attention to detail and only one penalty. The last time the Gators had only 1 penalty was in 1977. Gator fans can be described as “giddy” after this offensive performance, something not seen in over 4 years.
