At first it was Tennessee clicking offensively. Tyler Bray managed a few touchdown throws early on, including a nice little designed in-out pattern with Mychal Rivera to put the Volunteers up 14-7. After the Gators kicked a few field goals, Tennessee drove the length of the field and capped it off with the A.J. Johnson direct snap one yard touchdown rush.
Then Florida turned it up. Trey Burton responded with a Wildcat of his own, taking the snap, feinting the handoff, then getting the beneficiary of solid Gator blocking to turn it loose down the right sideline to tie the game at 20-20. The Gators then struck with another quick drive later on that relied on a big Mike Gillislee 45 yard gain and a connection between Jeff Driskel and Jordan Reed for a touchdown. Briskel capped it off with a big strike to Frankie Hammond for his only catch of the game, and he made the most of it with a 75 yard scorcher to put the Gators away.
