Social media reacts to Emory Jones’ big day passing — and rushing — for Florida against Tennessee
Sydney Hunte | 12 days ago
Amid prompts for Anthony Richardson to start quarterback for Florida, Emory Jones had a message of his own and had an unforgettable night for Florida during the Gators’ 38-14 win over Tennessee on Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
The Redshirt junior faces a big task this year as he tries to fill in the footsteps of the great Kyle Trask program and in Saturday’s swamp his double threat skills were fully effective. He threw 209 yards and 2 touchdowns on a 21-of-27 pass while throwing 0 interceptions, his first game without a pick this season. On the ground he reached 145 yards for 15 carries.
Its roaring and passing sums set career highs. In fact, it is the first time since Tim Tebow in 2009 that a Florida quarterback has passed more than 200 yards and run 100 or more yards in one game.
The Gators are heading to Kentucky on October 2nd, so all eyes will be on Jones to see what he can do next. Here’s a reaction to his big night:

I told you all that Emory is our QB1. He has played excellent football for the past two weeks. A loud fan account wants AR15, but Emory Jones is our guy this season. #GoGators
