Kadarius Toney continued his strong season Saturday in the first half against Missouri. 

The Eight Mile, Alabama, native, wearing the highly coveted No. 1 jersey for UF, hauled in both of Florida’s second-quarter touchdowns as the Gators went from trailing 7-6 to holding a double-digit lead at halftime. 

The first, a 17-yard reception, saw Toney dazzle on shed multiple defenders en route to the end zone.  

The second, a 30-yard grab, saw him create space in the coverage for Kyle Trask to deliver a strike near the goal line.

Toney finished the first half with four receptions for 60 yards as Florida took a 20-7 lead into the halftime break.

He made it a hat trick with a 16-yard TD run about 5 minutes into the third quarter to make it 27-7 Gators.
