Florida kicker Eddy Pineiro made his Florida debut. And he’s already won over a host of fans after just one game.
Pineiro made all three of his field goal attempts from the Gators’ 24-7 win over UMass. He connected on field goals from 40, 49 and 48.
Pineiro also did all of this while wearing Tim Tebow’s No. 15. Initially one famous Florida alum was not happy about it.
Then, former Heisman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel saw how good Pineiro was.

Florida’s kicking struggles have been well-documented and Pineiro was a breath of fresh air. The Gators return to action next week when they take on Kentucky in their first SEC game of the year. Florida has won 29 consecutive games against the Wildcats.
