Current and former National Football League players tweeted their thoughts on the game.
There's no telling how much despair Florida's fan base would be feeling right now had the Gators blown a 13-3 lead, especially after UT found its offensive rhythm following Davis' gut-wrenching fumble at the goal line. "It just so happened on the schedule, (our) paths cross. All of us are and everybody wants to win".
It also was yet another example of Tennessee's weird end-of-game voodoo. Florida was basically handing the game to Tennessee on a silver platter, and the best Tennessee could do is fight back to momentarily tie it before the Franks bomb. "I knew the kick line was around the 35 or the 38". It set the stage for a play a young quarterback and receiver could only dream about.
"It was an in-the-moment play", Franks said. "I just enjoyed seeing their excitement". Three plays gained only 12 yards and coach Jim McElwain, with the crowd booing, let the clock run down to 9 seconds before calling the second of three timeouts. Both teams displayed awful offense throughout the afternoon, much to the dismay of fans.
Here are the biggest takeaways from the Gators' thrilling first win of the season. Volunteers coach Butch Jones is hoping to ride his high-powered offense to a key road win early in conference play. He was co-defensive coordinator at Florida in 2015-16 before becoming the sole coordinator this year.
ABOUT TENNESSEE (2-0): The Volunteers are finding it easy to put up points early in 2017 thanks not only to the offense, but to strong work on special teams and defense. He's been a position coach or coordinator for such National Football League stalwarts as Warren Sapp, Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.
Later in the fourth, a two-play, 30-second drive saw the Vols pull within three points, with Dormady connecting with Ethan Wolf for a 28-yard touchdown.
There's a subsection here as well, and it's Tennessee's three missed field goals.
Tennessee lacks focus offensively.
In a related note, Missouri lost 35-3 at home to Purdue and East Carolina was trounced 64-17 on its own field by Virginia Tech, its most lopsided loss in Greenville since 1959. J.K. Dobbins ran 13 times for 172 yards and two scores for Ohio State.
On Saturday, it was on the money when it mattered most.
For three quarters, Florida vs. Tennessee was mundane.
"They're the Florida Gators", Scott said.
