Matt Baker’s takeaways from Florida-South Carolina

Florida WR Kadarius Toney's muffed punt was bad (and costly). But considering the moves he made on his 18-yard touchdown in the third quarter, the Gators can't give him the ball enough. He amassed 84 yards on his six offensive touches.

For the third week in a row, UF had trouble stopping opposing tight ends. First it was Georgia's Isaac Nauta, then Missouri's Albert Okwuegbunam. Saturday, tight ends Jacob August and Kyle Markway caught the Gamecocks' first two touchdowns.

Considering how the last two weeks had gone, give UF credit for responding from 14-0 early, then from 17 down in the second half. According to ESPN, the Gators became the fourth SEC team with multiple 17-point comebacks in the same season over the last 15 years. The others: 2016 Tennessee, 2011 Arkansas and 2010 Auburn.
