No. 24 Florida regroups from Irma vows to play for state

Tennessee responded with one more on a toss from quarterback Quinten Dormandy to tight end Ethan Wolf. After a comedy of errors, including a would-be touchdown that was not to be, somehow saw the game tied up at 20-20, Feleipe Franks made the throw of his young life with time expiring.

Florida appeared content to sit on the ball until overtime, but Jim McElwain called timeout with nine seconds remaining at his own 37. Henderson gave Florida complete control when he snared a tipped Quentin Dormady pass and returned it an easy 16 yards for a touchdown, Florida's third pick-six of the season - which, to that point, accounted for the Gators' only touchdowns of the season.

Back-to-back delay of game and false start penalties ensured they settled for a field goal instead.

On Florida's first drive of the second half, running back Lamical Perine took a handoff up the middle and turned it into a 21-yard gain.

Tennessee may be 2-0, but we're still not sure what Butch Jones' team will be in a rebuilding year for the program.

Redshirt freshman Felipe Franks made his first career start against MI finishing a poor 5 of 9 for 75 yards before being replaced with Malik Zaire. In the receiving end, Kelly caught for 60 yards in five receptions while Brandon Edward Johnson added 50 yards and a touchdown in four catches. This was especially true for kicker Brent Cimaglia, who booted one field goal attempt wide left and another wide right. He also missed another kick after UF's touchdown.

Martin forced Davis to fumble inside the two-yard-line.
