Florida beats Tennessee on last-second Hail Mary at the Swamp

Florida beats Tennessee on last-second Hail Mary at the Swamp

His first touchdown pass of the contest came midway through the final stanza, when he found Brandon Powell from five yards out to give Florida a 20-10 lead. But Tennessee quickly answered with a touchdown, then got the ball back when a Franks pass got tipped and landed in the arms of Tennessee nickelback Rashaan Gaulden.

But in the final 10 minutes at the Swamp, the teams traded three offensive touchdowns and the game was tied 20-20 with eight seconds remaining.

After some very bad clock management left just nine seconds on the clock, Franks and the Gators appeared to be playing for overtime. He stepped up in the pocket and heaved it toward a streaking Tyrie Cleveland, who grabbed it with no time left just in front of the south goal post.

Tennessee senior safety Todd Kelly Jr. will not play in Saturday's game at Florida on account of a potential-season-ending knee injury, a source told SEC Country.

That the game was even close was a product of some late-game Tennessee heroics and late-game mismanagement on the part of the Gators.

Florida got to 13 points in the second half on a pick-six by defensive back C.J. Henderson.

Quarterback Quinten Dormady threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns on a 20-for-37 passing day.

Franks compleed 18 of 28 passes for 212 yards.

When Florida's offense finally broke through on what appeared to be a 74-yard touchdown run by freshman Malik Davis, it was ruled upon review that Davis fumbled at the 2-yard line. Davis led the Gators in rushing with 94 yards, and Cleveland led the receivers with 93 yards through the air.
