Florida connects on 60-yard game-ending TD to top Tennessee

Instead of using the nine seconds and two timeouts to move closer, Florida (1-1, 1-0 SEC) went for it all, and the move paid off. Tennessee settled for an Aaron Medley field goal with 50 seconds remaining to tie the game at 20, and after Florida gained a total of 12 yards on its first three plays it appeared that overtime was looming.

The final play capped a insane fourth quarter in which the teams combined for 37 points and little, if any, defense.

On the next drive, Dormady found Kelly for a 52-yard pass before connecting with Ethan Wolf for a 28-yard touchdown. Tennessee's John Kelly had 141 yards rushing and 96 more yards on six receptions.

In Florida's opener against MI, they rushed for only 11 yards and had 154 total yards. However, Tennessee poked the ball loose at the one-yard line, and replay ruled the play a fumble through the end zone for a touchback.

A loss would send the Gators to an 0-2 start after a opening season loss to MI. Nice game for Eddy Pineiro.

Pineiro added a 41-yarder with 8:11 left before halftime.

Malik Davis briefly put the offense on the board when he streaked 74 yards down the left side of the field to give the Gators a 20-3 lead with 10:45 remaining in the game.

Following the turnover, UT's defense forced a three-and-out punt which Callaway returned for 39 yards to the UF-36. Dawson had dropped an interception on the first play of that stand before teammate Chauncey Gardner was called for taunting, giving the Vols an extra down.

Tennessee threw on four straight plays while also getting flagged for a false start, with Dormady getting intercepted by Dawson at the goal line on third-and-goal from the 6.
