Let me introduce you to Trey Burton. He's a freshman who just did something that Tim Tebow never did—score six touchdowns in one game. That happened Saturday night in The Swamp against Kentucky.

Let me answer the question that will surely be asked: Is there now a QB controversy in Gainesville?


John Brantley is the starting QB of the 2010 Florida Gators.  That being said, the Trey Burton Secret is out, and now defenses have to prepare for the passing attack of John Brantley and the all-purpose attack of Trey Burton.

Against Kentucky, Burton started his milestone with an 11-yard run in the first quarter that helped give the Gators a 7-0 lead. In the same quarter, Burton caught a 11-yard pass from John Brantley.

In the second half, Burton went back to work with a 10-yard run to help make it 27-7 in the third quarter. In the same quarter, Burton ran 9 yards to help push the score to 34-14.

The fourth quarter belonged to Burton. First, he had a 3-yard run to make it 41-14 and he had another scoring run of 7 yards to help account for the final score of 48-14.

When it was all over, Burton passed once for 42 yards, rushed five times for 40 yards and five touchdowns, and also caught five balls for 37 yards and one touchdown.

Not a bad outing for a true freshman.

Let the talk begin in Gainesville, but one thing is now certain: Alabama must now prepare for a very dangerous Florida Gator offense next weekend.

The questions surrounding Florida's offense are now answered.
