74-yard TD wiped out when Malik Davis fumbles at goal line

"It's a team that hurts", Jones said following the loss to the Vols' SEC rival. Again, you've got Kelly, who was growing stronger by the carry against a wearying Florida defense. They know I love them. It's got to drive you that much more if you're a competitor. "That's one of those plays that comes around every so often, and unfortunately they made the play and we didn't".

Cleveland hauled in a 63-yard touchdown pass from Feleipe Franks as time expired, and No. 24 Florida stunned 23rd-ranked Tennessee 26-20 in a wild, wacky and sometimes unwatchable rivalry game Saturday. But the Gators had to settle for a 27-yard field goal from junior Eddy Pineiro. Justin Martin caught Davis from behind and knocked the ball loose.

"He got behind us ..." the senior said of the final play, his words trailing off. A season where Cleveland seemed poised to thrive as an excellent secondary option suddenly became a season where the sophomore needed to lead the receiving corps.

FLORIDA: The Gators clearly have issues offensively, but Franks surely gained confidence and the Gators may have found two playmakers in Davis and receiver Kadarius Toney - both freshmen.

"I didn't go into that play looking to throw the deep ball".

The play also ended what had been a defensive struggle, with neither offense able to get out of its own way until the final 8:36 - at which time the two teams proceeded to combine for 30 points. I made it my business that whatever happens in this game, I am just going to keep playing. "I think this is about the fastest I ever ran". While the Gators were taking care of business in the Swamp, their next two opponents were making their own statements as Kentucky beat SC 23-13 and Vanderbilt (which plays at Florida on September 30) topped No. 18 Kansas State 14-7.

Jones resisted exclusively blaming the loss on the final play. Both teams displayed awful offense throughout the afternoon, much to the dismay of fans.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Making his first career start at home, Franks finished 18 of 28 for 212 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Defensive tackle Kendal Vickers said the Vols are mad.

In a now seven game losing streak at Florida, Tennessee has lost games in a variety of ways.

Kickers Brent Cimaglia and Aaron Medley combined to miss three field goals. But while the ending was spectacular, the beginning and middle were anything.

The result kept the score at 13-3. It gave the Gators a 12th win in the last 13 years against Tennessee and allowed them to avoid the program's first 0-2 start since 1971. The Vols haven't wont their division since they were crowned co-champions with Georgia in 2007.

PITTSBURGH - Mason Rudolph threw for five touchdowns, all in the first half, and No. 9 Oklahoma State (3-0) drilled Pittsburgh (1-2). Because of the magical optics of it all - a quarterback rolling to his right, then setting his feet, then launching a majestically high long bomb that came descending out of the Florida sky into the waiting arms of a Gators receiver.

Stay golden, Florida and Tennessee fans. "We wanted to go to overtime".
