Butch Jones said the 67-yard touchdown pass to Jauan Jennings to make it 24-21 wasn't supposed to go to Teez Tabor's side. It was intended for the other side but Dobbs saw Tabor slip at the last second and adjusted

What did DE Derek Barnett think of the trash talk from the Gators this week? "I think they worried about talking too much and [weren't] focused on playing football. It showed in the end." Barnett said Florida's second-half body language "was bad" and S Todd Kelly Jr. said he felt they had taken control once they got that early stop on the third quarter. "It looked like we took their soul, really."

Tennessee totally dominated Florida in the second half. Vols out-gained Florida 336-102. Joshua Dobbs started 1 of 8 but threw for a career-high 319 yards with four touchdowns.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, last year, Tennessee lost two games in which its win probability reached at least 90 percent, including its 28-27 loss to Florida at the Swamp. If the results hold, this will be the Vols' second win this season in which their win probability fell below 10 percent. The Vols' 18-point halftime deficit would mean this would be the second-largest halftime deficit the Vols have erased

Florida hasn't been perfect, but the Gators have played with an edge in jumping out to a 21-3 halftime lead over Tennessee. It was obvious in talking with Florida coach Jim McElwain this offseason that the Gators felt like Tennessee and even Georgia, with Kirby Smart coming aboard as coach, were getting a lot of hype when it was Florida that actually won the East last season. McElwain's pet response all summer was, "We're still going to go play those games. I don't think we'll forfeit."

Tennessee jogs into its tunnel to the sound of boos from the home crowd with the Gators up 21-3. Tennessee tied a team-high five drops in a single game all in the first half and got just three points on three trips inside the red zone. This is the second time Tennessee has scored just three points in the first half (Week 1 vs. App State). The Gators have taken care of business in the red zone, scoring three touchdowns on three visits and are out-gaining the Vols 300-162. Florida is also 4 of 7 on third downs, while Tennessee is 3 of 10

Tennessee gets inside Florida's 5-yard line (again) and Joshua Dobbs throws an interception to Quincy Wilson in the end zone. That makes two trips close to the red zone (seven inside the 10-yard line) with zero points. The Vols also have four drops in this game. According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Vols had the lowest drop pct in the SEC this season (2.7 percent). They had only dropped 2 passes in their first 3 games.
