Florida 7 14 0 7 28
Tennessee 0 3 14 21 38

This was such an amazing and memorable game for Tennessee fans! This game started off shaky; we were down 17 points at halftime.

The real turning point for the Vols came from (SO) #15 WR Jauan Jennings. He made an incredible “circus catch” earlier in the game and he beat #31 Jalen Tabor, Florida’s leading corner for a touchdown that gave Tennessee their first lead of the day.Image result for jauan jennings florida

Right after this play Appleby threw an interception to #24 Todd Kelly Jr., and the Vols were able to take advantage to their field position and score another touchdown.

Florida was making a lot of little mistakes in the second half that really cost them the game. Florida got their first 1st down of the second half in Q4 with 7:46 left on the play clock. However, they were able to finish that drive and score making it a 10 point game.

Florida’s last drive started at the 1 yard line after a not so smart fair catch, and was cut short by the Tennessee defense. Tennessee received the ball, Hurd made a quick rush, then Dobbs took a knee just after the two-minute mark. The streak was over!

“Nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck. Florida Gators are going to win, simple as that,” – Quincy Wilson.
