Anthony Richardson, welcome to being a household college football name!
The Florida quarterback had a coming out party Saturday night in the 29-26 win over No. 7 Utah.
Richardson connected on 17-of-24 passes for 168 yards, while rushing 11 times for 104 yards and 3 touchdowns. He averaged 9.5 yards per carry.
The Florida quarterback literally put his team on his back and delivered Billy Napier a win in his first-career game in Gainesville.
Richardson also ripped off a 46-yard touchdown run:

Anthony Richardson can just make plays normal quarterbacks can’t. How in the world wasn’t Dan Mullen playing him?
