Florida Gators vs Tennessee Review Saturday 19th September

Im spoiling you, honestly I am! Today your not getting just one game review, but two!!!

Ill do separate posts but ill start with the Gators vs Tennessee, followed by LSU vs ULL.

So far the Gators are 2-0 in the season and now came up against Tennessee in another home game at the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. This game would also prove to be more of a test to the Gators than the previous games against Charleston and Troy.

First Quarter: Florida were the first onto the scoreboard at the 11min 33sec mark when Caleb Sturgis kicked for a field goal capping of an eight play 10 yard drive. A 37 yard Field goal sailing over the uprights. Before the end of the quarter Tennessee would level the scores through junior kicker Daniel Lincoln, scoring a 24 yard field goal.

Second Quarter: The Gators made a great start to the second quarter, after putting together an 11 play drive the Gators scored the first touchdown of the game. When Tebow ran for 1 yard into the end zone, scores 10-3. Not to be outdone Tennessee star Eric Berry intercepted a Tebow pass which gave Tennessee another field goal score from 20 yard. The Gators responded with a 52 yard rive and Sturgis added another 3 point field goal with 51sec left in the half, scores now 13-6.

Third Quarter: Tennessee were on the receiving side of the ball at the start of the second half, however it was not to be lucky for them. Junior cornerback Joe Haden picked off a Johnathan Crompton pass, this allowed the Gators to add another field goal from the 35 yard line. By the end of the quarter the Gators scored their second touchdown, Taking a total of 6mins 52sec the 13 play 69 yard drive resulted in sophmore Jeff Demps scoring for the Gators. Scores going into the final quarter: 23-6.

Fourth Quarter: The game continued its ebb-flow pattern and Tennessee counted the Gator attack when the Gators QB Tebow fumbled the pall on the Tennessee two yard line. Tennessee then drove 63 yards down field to score their first touchdown of the game. Senior tailback Montario Hardest drove over the line on a 17 yard run with 8min 11sec left in the game, scores edging closer now: 23-13. After forcing the Gators to punt the ball, Tennessee forced a fourth and sixth down. Crompton then attempted a long pass down field, which, sadly for Tennessee, was picked off by safety Ahmad Black. The turn over in possession allowed Florida to close out the game and hold onto a 23-13 win.

Attendance: 90,894, a school record.

The Gainesville Sun Review:


Another win for the Gators, this time up against much stiffer competition. So far the Gators have done well, however they will not be missing the huge upcoming game against LSU on the 10th October!
