If you have any questions throughout the game, we'll be answering quite literally everything ya'll shoot our way in the comment section below. 

4th Quarter:

5:14 4Q: Florida 51 - Ole Miss 29 

Wow another touchdown by TE Kyle Pitts. He's torched Ole Miss today. 4TDs for Pitts. 6 TDs for Trask.

11:00 4Q: Florida 44 - Ole Miss 29 

Three catches for Kenny Yeboah on the drive, including an 8 yard TD from Corral. 2pt good. Really nice drive for the new Rebel TE, a grad transfer.

3rd Quarter: 

So Florida scored another field goal at some point here and its Florida 41 - Ole Miss 21 after three quarters.

7:21 3Q: Florida 38 - Ole Miss 21

Ole Miss kicking update: still widely problematic. Luke Logan not even close from 42 yards. Also – why kick down 17 in the second half?

9:30 3Q: Florida 38 - Ole Miss 21

Sam Williams nearly got home for a second time on the drive and Ole Miss stalls Florida for a 55yd field goal. Defense made a few plays on this drive, both in the pass rush with Williams and a pretty defended pass from Jay Stanley on a full layout. 

13:43 3Q: Florida 35 - Ole Miss 21 

Beautiful, two-play drive. Ealy scores after a long connection between Corral and Moore. We are so damn excited about this Ole Miss offense. Time for the defense to show up.

14:19 3Q: Florida 35 - Ole Miss 14 

Trask hits Pitts for a 71-yd touchdown, their third TD connection today. Yikes.


2nd Quarter: 

0:01 2Q: Florida 28 - Ole Miss 10

Pitts from Trask for the second time today to end the half

3:10 2Q: Florida 21 - Ole Miss 14

Busted coverage leads to an easy touchdown for Kadarius Toney from Trask.

12:04 2Q: Ole Miss 14 - Florida 14 

Matt Corral Dontario Drummond into the end zone with a 14 yard reception. That's two for Drummond, who may be the No. 2 receiver. 

1st Quarter:

0:50 1Q: Florida 14 - Ole Miss 7 

Trask to Grimes on a really pretty back shoulder throw for the score. Long run by Kadarius Toney sets up the score.

2:26 1Q: Ole Miss 7 - Florida 7

Lane Kiffin wins the trick play battle but gets no points off it. Gators turn the ball over on a trick play interception by AJ Finley. Ole Miss runs their own trick, and Drummond hits Ealy for a 45 yard pass, but Matt Corral's pass picked off after being tipped at the line.

3:43 1Q: Ole Miss 7 - Florida 7

Matt Corral with a really impressive drive, hitting Elijah Moore on a 28 yard pass on 3rd and 18 before a 46 yard touchdown to Drummond. 

5:48 1Q: Florida 7 - Ole Miss 0 

Trask to Pitts for the first score of the game on a 3rd and goal from the 1. Some good play on the drive for the Ole Miss defense though, especially Keidron Smith in the secondary.

10:36 1Q: Ole Miss goes for it on 4th down on their opening drive. Corral ends up getting sacked on the 4th and 3 attempt.

Fake money gifted for turnovers. Wonder how the players feel about that....
