Florida Vs. Tennessee Score Update: Chris Rainey Stakes Gators To Big Lead

Florida's built its lead over Tennessee in the third quarter, but the Vols have gotten a touchdown back, and now trail 30-13.

Florida's first touchdown came on a fourth-down run by Trey Burton, capping a seven-play, 42-yard drive, but its second was spectacular. One play after being met by two Vols in the backfield on a toss, Chris Rainey took a John Brantley checkdown and blazed through the Tennessee defense for a 83-yard touchdown reception, the longest in Florida history by a running back.

Tennessee pulled a score back by capitalizing on a Florida turnover. Jeff Demps had the ball ripped out after being stood up on carry, and Tennessee took advantage of great field position to get its second score of the game on a strike from Tyler Bray to Da'Rick Rogers. But a failed two-point conversion try leaves the Vols three possessions back.
