Florida Beats Tennessee on Hail Mary 26-20

The Vols settled for a 27-yard field goal and, apparently, overtime.

Adding to the freakish finish was that Florida seemed on the verge of wasting a last opportunity to win it with an Eddy Pineiro field goal by letting precious time tick off the clock, which triggered a lot of boos for McElwain because UF had two timeouts available. "And our guys figured out a way to win".

The play concluded one of the wildest fourth quarters for a series dating to 1916 and sent an announced crowd of 87,736 in the Swamp into a frenzy as everyone on the Gators' sideline surged onto the field.

Redshirt freshman quarterback Feleipe Franks, after struggling to make plays all afternoon, borrowed a page of history from 1984 Heisman Trophy victor Doug Flutie to potentially transform Florida's season.

Feleipe Franks and Tyrie Cleveland practiced the play during the offseason and still do some days at the end of practice.

"You grow up waiting for moments like that to happen in your life", Franks told CBS Sports' Allie LaForce on the field afterward. A 52-yard catch-and-run by Kelly set up a 28-yard touchdown pass from Dormady to tight end Ethan Wolf to pull the Vols within 20-17 with 4:43 to play. A Medley missed field goal. Shannon and the rest of Florida's staff have motivated the Gators by pointing out they missed a combined 78 tackles in their last two games with Tennessee - a 28-27 Florida victory in 2015 and a 38-28 Tennessee triumph past year. Kelly had 237 all-purpose yards, including six catches for 96 yards. That being said, this is a defense-first football team once again in Gainesville.

"Even though I wasn't a star player, he didn't treat me any different", LaVaar Scott said. Junior quarterback Quinten Dormady completed 13 of 18 passes running for 194 yards making two scores and one interception.

Malik Davis looked like he was going to ice it for the Gators with 10:45 in the fourth before being stripped from behind on a 74-yard run at the goal line.

"It was a remarkable play by Justin", Jones said. But the Gators also had two weeks to prepare for Tennessee, which played its third game in 13 days on Saturday.

Tennessee (2-1, 0-1 SEC) entered the second half trailing, 6-3, and fell behind by as much as 10 points before tying the game up with less than a minute to play.

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

Ignited by their previous touchdown drive - and aided by a winded Florida defense - Tennessee needed only two snaps to move 75 yards for another touchdown. The home team scored first with a field goal in the first quarter and had another in the second quarter.

1st & goal from UF 1-yard line.

When Franks was tipped and intercepted at the 40-yard line with under four minutes left, Tennessee suddenly looked ready to steal a win.

But it was the Gators' prayers who were ultimately answered.

The game for three quarters was nearly unbearable to watch as the Gators held a 6-3 advantage after 45 minutes.
