Tennessee was a rock fight for most of the game, but featured maybe the best finish of this young college football season.

The Franks-to-Cleveland connection broke a 20-20 deadlock, made that way by Aaron Medley's 27-yard field-goal for Tennessee in the final minute.

Gainesville, Fla. - Tyrie Cleveland was one of the last players to leave Florida Field.

We begin with the "Titanic" version, and Florida elation.

Florida's incredible Hail Mary to beat Tennessee instantly became the talk of fans on Saturday.

WHAT IT MEANS: The Gators needed something good to happen Saturday and they got it, not only avoiding their first 0-2 start in 46 years, but with one 70-yards-in-the-air throw by Franks, but a dose of hope for the future.

The Vols scored five plays later, cutting it to 13-10 on Kelly's 24-yard run. Jalen McCleskey caught seven passes for 162 yards and three touchdowns and three other Cowboys reached the 100-yard receiving mark, the first time in 12 years a team has had four 100-yard receivers in the same game.

He was pretty efficient early, but as the game went along things got tougher and tougher for Franks and the offense over the course of the first half. Both Florida and Tennessee continue to recruit at a high level, but scoring touchdowns shouldn't be quantum physics hard for these programs in the first three quarters. A 52-yard catch-and-run by Kelly set up a 28-yard touchdown pass from Dormady to tight end Ethan Wolf to pull the Vols within 20-17 with 4:43 to play.

And maybe that's the one explanation for Cleveland catching that ball in the end zone with no time on the clock to turn a certain overtime into another comeback victory for the Gators over the Vols. "He didn't get rattled after the interception", Florida coach Jim McElwain said.

On the ground, John Kelly rushed for 80 yards in 18 carries while Carlin Fils-aime added 41 yards and two touchdowns.

AUBURN, Ala. - Kamryn Pettway ran for 128 yards and three touchdowns as the Tigers (1-2) overcame five turnovers to hold off FCS school Mercer in another troubling performance by the Tigers' offense.

Looks like Florida is going to win with defense again.

Although it is early, one loss in the SEC East at this juncture could come back to haunt Tennessee as they will face No.13 Georgia in two weeks and that may already be a must-win if they want to have a shot at the East.

"I just enjoyed watching the guys [celebrate]", McElwain said.

"Big-time players make big-time plays in big-time games", sophomore linebacker David Reese said.
