Shorter finished the contest with 54 yards receiving on three receptions as the Gators ultimately fell, 29-17.
He had his best season overall and finished with 550 yards and three touchdowns on 41 receptions. He also will most likely be back next season as he has one more year of eligibility left.
Florida’s 6-7 finish was its first time below .500 since the program went 4-7 in 2017. That was Jim McElwain’s last season before Dan Mullen was hired.
Mullen is now out after this struggling season and Billy Napier from Louisiana will be replacing him.
UCF finished 9-4 in Gus Malzahn’s first year on the job.
