Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio had another career night in win over Kentucky

GAINESVILLE, Fla.-- Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio had another career night on Saturday, as the quarterback helped lead the Gators to the 45-7 win over Kentucky.

Luke Del Rio and the Florida offense were in sync on Saturday. The Gators quarterback led his team to the 45-7 win over Kentucky in what was another career night for the signal caller. 

"I'm not ready to put him in the Gator Hall of Fame or the National Football League Hall of Fame, but I think he is really learning how to play the position and knows what to expect and is starting to feel real comfortable with his pieces around him," said UF head coach Jim McElwain. "He's starting to spread it around and throwing to the guys that are open."

Del Rio threw for 320 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the SEC opener. In the last two games, he has thrown for just under 600 yards, completing over 60 percent of his passes and scoring six touchdowns. He is the first Florida quarterback since Tim Tebow in 2007 to throw for 250-plus yards and complete 55 percent of his passes in consecutive games.
