Luke Del Rio to start at quarterback for Florida vs. Vanderbilt

Before being injured Saturday, Del Rio had completed 16-of-25 passes for 138 yards with one touchdown and one interception on the season.

Considering that, he may have experienced his toughest setback yet on Saturday. Del Rio was smothered by defensive end Dare Odeyingbo while delivering a pass and slammed hard to the turf on his left, non-throwing shoulder.

"You're going to have to do everything with just a higher sense of urgency". "Yet the guys rallied behind Feleipe".

A week after being humiliated by top-ranked Alabama, Vanderbilt looked to prove it's 3-0 start to the season was legit and that it is, indeed, a threat in the SEC East.

"The guys knew what they needed to do and they went out and did it. It's emotional and I definitely wanted to keep him in my prayers, especially when I was out there on the field".

Florida Gators wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland (89) with an out of bounds catch during the second quarter of the Florida Gators game against Vanderbilt.

Earlier, Davis put the Gators ahead for good at 24-17 with a 1-yard scoring run with 6:56 left in the third quarter.




The game turned out to be quite a battle from there.

Cleveland leads the team in every receiving category, recording 15 catches, 326 yards and two touchdowns.

Down 31-24 and still with two timeouts, Vandy went for an onsides kick that UF's Dre Massey covered up at the Commodores' 48. Get the app and get the game.

Without Cleveland, the best options for Franks and UF's passing game appear to be freshman Kadarius Toney, who is second on the team with 11 catches for 107 yards, as well as Hammond, Brandon Powell and Freddie Swain.

"We missed a few tackles", Commodores linebacker LaDarius Wiley said.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Gators are 9-point home favorites to knock off the Commodores, who opened as 7-point underdogs. Things headed to halftime tied at 17. HIs status for the rest of the season remains uncertain but head coach Jim McElwain has a press conference coming up shortly. "This was a game of attrition". Luke's sophomore season was cut short due to injuries in both shoulders.

Making his first start since last season's loss at Arkansas, Del Rio was 7 of 11 for 64 yards prior to his departure. I think it's too many.
