Thursday, 3 a.m.

Without his star receivers, it turns out that University of Florida star quarterback Kyle Trask doesn't shine as brightly.

Trask, one of the four finalists for the University of Florida, had an awful night in the Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma Wednesday night in a 55-20 loss.

Trask threw three interceptions in his first 10 passes and setting season lows for percentage, yardage and quarterback rating. He had not thrown fewer than two touchdowns in a game; in Wednesday night's game against Oklahoma, he didn't throw any.

Florida played without its top four receivers against the Sooners, including stars Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney. The Gators went from a three-point favorite to an 8.5 underdog after the annoucement.

The Sooners jumped to a 17-0 after the interceptions and rolled. Oklahoma ran for 435 yards rushing and 684 total yards.

Rhamondre Stevenson ran for 186yards and Marcus Major for 110 for Oklahoma.

It was the third straight loss for Florida, which had been in position to make the college football playoffs before losing to LSU, Alabama and Notre Dame to finish the season.
