Smack nailed all five field goal attempts made in his first start as a placekicker for the Gators. He drilled a 27-yarder in the first quarter and a 23-yarder in the second, but those were merely a warmup for a 54-yard attempt that split the uprights with eight minutes to go in the half.
With that 54-yard kick, Smack locked himself in as Florida’s placekicker moving forward, and he also etched his name in the history books. Smack’s field goal was the seventh-longest in Gators history, and no Florida kicker has made five in a game since Eddy Pineiro in 2017 against UAB.
“Hats off to Trey Smack to step up and hit all five of those,” Florida head coach Billy Napier said after the game.
