Western senior quarterback Tyler Monaco connected with Elijah Moore on a slant for a 65-yard touchdown on the game’s first play and the host Wildcats never looked back. Not even a South Florida deluge could slow down Western, who outgained the Gators 280-92 in the first half.
Tyler Monaco: Completed 15 of 26 passes for 297 yards and 3 TDs.
Elijah Moore: Had 6 receptions for 163 yards, 2 TDs, and a 2-point conversion
THEY SAID IT
