Florida vs. Tennessee: A celebration of ugly

New, comments

Let's take a look back and recap some the worst moments from Saturday's ugly matchup between the Gators and Vols.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Florida Gators and Tennessee Volunteers played what might have been the ugliest game of the 2013 season on Saturday. The Gators came away with a 31-17 win, which may not look all that exceptional, but looks like an offensive explosion when compared to the actual gameplay.

The game featured nine turnovers, four quarterbacks combined to go 25-of-54, only one of those passers didn't throw a pick, and the Gators had as many defenders catch passes (four) as it did offensive players. Even the ground games were ugly, with Tennessee's averaging 2.9 yards per carry and Florida's 3.8.

Let's take a look back at the heaping bounty of lowlights this game provided us.
