Florida Wins On Last-Second Bomb From Feleipe Franks To Tyrie Cleveland

Florida Wins On Last-Second Bomb From Feleipe Franks To Tyrie Cleveland

Florida was able to win the game largely because it could generate constant pressure on a bewildered Volunteers offensive line.

A three-quarter slough that ended with UF (1-1, 1-0 SEC) leading 6-3 turned into a fourth-quarter shootout featuring 37 points. Tennessee netted things up at 20-20 with 50 seconds remaining in the game.

Nevertheless, after officials reviewed the play, they ruled that Davis fumbled the ball at the 2-yard line and the ball went through the back of the end zone for a touchback. The Volunteers defense struggled when it counted and let the Gators stay in the contest and get one more drive at the end of regulation.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Florida has won its past two meetings at home against Tennessee (on Saturday and in 2015) on 63-yard, game-winning touchdown passes.

And it reminded Tennessee fans - once again - about just how awful their fortune is in this series with Florida. No. 2 Oklahoma (3-0) took a while to break away but tuned up Tulane (1-2) 56-14 thanks to a 17-of-27, 331-yard day from QB Baker Mayfield, who's on a Heisman mission.

After all, when tailback John Kelly has already piled up 236 total yards by land and air, you've got first-and-goal on the Florida 9 and two timeouts left, and you don't hand Kelly the football a single time before kicking a field goal you believe will force overtime, something's wrong.

On the ensuing possession, the Vols answered with a 51-yard field goal by freshman Brent Cimaglia to pull within three points and close out the first half.

Tyrie Cleveland was one of the last players to leave Florida Field. That was all the time Franks' and Cleveland needed to enter their names into Gator football history. He would not be touched until he was mauled by his celebrating teammates. Instead, they had to wait until later in the quarter when Franks connected with Brandon Powell for his first career touchdown throw to put UF ahead 20-10.

Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormady had three interceptions, including one tipped ball that went for a Gator touchdown.

"I think this is way bigger than the 98-yard touchdown against LSU", he said.

The Vols scored five plays later, cutting it to 13-10 on Kelly's 24-yard run. Why didn't they hand it to Kelly on first-and-goal from the nine after Rashaan Gaulden's interception of Franks late in the fourth?

He seemed to take a little bit of a more creative approach, but it's hard to dial up successful plays when there's no push up front in the running game and the receivers are failing to get open in the passing game.
