Move over Mac Jones, Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields, Kyle Trask is coming for the Heisman.

Once the college football season commenced this fall, the discussions for Heisman Trophy favorites began. Of course, Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and Ohio State’s Justin Fields were the favorites to win the prestigious award in 2020. While both have been fantastic this season, there’s one player who’s performing at a better pace than the two favorites, and that’s Florida’s, Kyle Trask.

On Saturday, Trask and the Gators kicked the doors down against the Georgia Bulldogs early, winning 44-28. In fact, the Gators entered halftime with a staggering 38-21 lead. Trask has been a key figure in Florida’s success this season, and it showed against the rival Bulldogs. Now, he joins Florida immortality.

Trask joins Rex Grossman and Danny Wuerffel as the only Gators quarterback to have multiple 400-yard games in a season.

Not only did Trask make history in the Gators program, but also in the SEC.

Trask now stands atop the conference by himself, as he’s the only quarterback in history to ever throw at least four touchdowns in five straight games. Additionally, his 22 touchdowns through the first five contests of a campaign is tied for second all-time in the SEC, joining former Alabama signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa. In fact, he only trailed LSU great Joe Burrow for the lead, who threw 23 touchdown passes through five games.

Once the final whistle blew, Trask left the field with a 69.7 completion percentage, 474 yards and four touchdowns. Now, he’s put up a total of 1,815 yards, 22 touchdowns and three interceptions while completing 68.7-percent of his passes.

It’s time for college football experts and pundits to put respect on Trask’s name because he is definitely a top-three candidate for college football’s most prestigious individual award.
