"Defending SEC East champs".

"He showed me he could throw it a long ways", McElwain quipped. It's understandable why a young guy like him might not know Flutie.

"I really got that feeling today in practice".

Franks entered Gainesville in 2016, but did not play in a game until this season.

A lot of things have happened to the Gators already this season.

Florida appeared content to sit on the ball until overtime, but Jim McElwain called timeout with nine seconds remaining at his own 37.

The Gators opened their season with a 33-17 loss to MI. They certainly did on this play. There might be a few teams that will end up being good like the Georgia Bulldogs or the LSU Tigers, but this game didn't do much for the middle of the SEC. "It would have been great to play a week ago, there's no doubt about it, and yet (there is) the understanding of why". The Vols needed breathing room in this game, and they couldn't get it. It was 6-3 at the half.

It was nice to see the Swamp in such a frenzy after an exciting conference win, after the game some of the Gators shared an emotional moment with sophomore wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland who caught the game victor.

"For me, I love throwing the ball deep", he said. "I'm just happy for them". "It's something we come here for is to go play a game there". The defense is still outpacing the offense 3-2 this season. Franks had an inconsistent start to his college football career over the last two games, but came up big when it mattered most. Franks, however, will rightfully be remembered as the hero of the game.

For a night anyway, all of the problems of a game that looked like it was slipping away could be forgotten and forgiven.

It shouldn't surprise you that Florida's on this list.

You didn't need to see anything from Tennessee vs. Florida until the fourth quarter.

Adding to the weird 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.
