The 22-year-old redshirt junior quarterback was starting in his first game against Vanderbilt since October 15 of last season. "You just feel frightful for him". "[But] the guys rallied behind Feleipe". Del Rio entered in the third quarter of last Saturday's game against Kentucky with the Gators down 10 points and led a wild comeback by completing 9-of-14 pass attempts for 74 yards and the game-winning touchdown.
He didn't return. It's uncertain if he ever will at UF.
Florida (3-1, 3-0) dominated the second half on the way to a 38-24 victory over the Commodores (3-2, 0-2).
"He's obviously been a guy on the deep stuff", McElwain said of Cleveland, who also hauled in a 98-yard touchdown catch against LSU last season in Baton Rouge. Franks played poised against the Commodores (3-2, 0-2 SEC) but was also hurting for his teammate. It isn't like you're going to run by them. "It's emotional and I definitely wanted to keep him in my prayers, especially when I was out there on the field".
[Updated: 2:24 p.m.] Florida likely will be without its leading receiver and biggest offensive playmaker against LSU on Saturday in The Swamp.
Davis, in turn, put the game away.
Prakash Raj ready to return national awards
Do you agree with Prakash Raj's views? Veteran actor Prakash Raj is undoubtedly one of the finest actors of Indian cinema. He went on to say that it is hard to say whether "he" is the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh or a temple priest.
Davis, a freshman, ran 17 times for 124 yards. But Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur (18 of 40 for 264 yards and three touchdowns) kept the Commodores in it. Vanderbilt did a lot of things that they hadn't done on tape - relying more on their passing game than their running attack. The Pac-12 schedule-makers did Oregon no favors this season, as the Ducks are not off until the week of November 11, with arguably the two worst teams in the conference waiting after that in Arizona and Oregon State. Lamical Perine added 58 yards and three scores.
Frankly, that's about where the Commodores should be right now.
The 21st-ranked Gators (3-1, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) continue to be rocked by an off-field scandal involving credit card fraud that's dragged on for weeks.
Coach Jim McElwain visited Davis this week and said after Saturday's victory over Vanderbilt that the 6-foot-4 junior from Miami has "a long road ahead". "This was a game attrition". He underwent offseason surgeries on both shoulders.
The son of Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, Luke Del Rio started six games last season.
Del Rio was scheduled to undergo surgery on Monday, handing the job back to redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, who started the first three games before being benched in the second half of a win over Kentucky on September 23.
