Florida Gators quarterback Luke Del Rio is out for the South Carolina game on Saturday. 


Two days after his team fell to unranked Arkansas, 31-10, redshirt sophomore quarterback Luke Del Rio has been declared out for Florida’s home game against South Carolina.

Del Rio, who’s out with a shoulder injury, completed 19-of-37 passes for 229 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions. The majority of his passing yards, though, came when the game was already firmly in the Razorbacks’ hands — 112 yards of his total were during the final two drives of the game. That was Del Rio’s worst stat line since he went 18-of-38 for 236 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions against Missouri on Oct. 15.

Head coach Jim McElwain did not name a starter for Saturday’s game with South Carolina, but he said on Monday that graduate transfer quarterback Austin Appleby would get the first crack at first-teams reps in practice. True freshmen Kyle Trask and Feleipe Franks will compete for the job as well.

Appleby has started two games for the Gators this season: a 38-28 loss on the road to Tennessee and a 13-6 win at Vanderbilt. Against the Volunteers, Appleby completed 23-of-39 passes for 296 yards, three touchdowns and an interception, and Florida dominated Tennessee for 30 minutes before utterly collapsing in the second half to end an 11-game win streak versus the Vols.

The win over the Commodores produced a much more mundane stat line for Appleby. He connected on 19-of-28 passes for 144 yards — no touchdowns, no picks. Before he arrived at Florida, Appleby threw for 2,777 yards, 19 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in 16 games with Purdue.
