Robbie Andreu @RobbieAndreu LEXINGTON, Ky. — It’s pretty much confirmed now: Florida’s biggest playmaker on offense at this early stage of the season is true freshman Wide Receiver Kadarius Toney.
Toney, who showed flashes as a potential home-run hitter against Tennessee, knocked one out of the park Saturday night against Kentucky, lining up as the wildcat quarterback and weaving his way through the Wildcats’ defense for a 36-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter.
In what had to be the biggest oversight of the night, Kentucky’s secondary failed to line anyone up on wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland on a fourth-and-three play late in the second quarter.
Following back-to-back sacks by defensive end Cece Jefferson, UK place-kicker Austin MacGinnis clanged a 48-yard field goal attempt off the right upright with 16 seconds left.
Dawson started the game and was beaten on a fade route by wide receiver Garrett Johnson for a touchdown in the second quarter that gave UK a 14-7 lead.
