KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Jauan Jennings will be the toast of Tennessee for as long as he lives.

The wideout’s iconic 43-yard Hail Mary reception to beat Georgia 34-31 on Saturday remains the talk of college football, as it produced one of the most magical moments in Volunteers history.

The play might’ve never happened if not for a last-second change by receivers coach Zach Azzanni.

After a “Polaroid timeout” to see Georgia’s defensive alignment, Azzanni decided to move Jennings into the trips-set formation and insert tight end Jason Croom into the play, too.

The changes worked, as Croom helped box out some Georgia defenders and Jennings simply out-jumped the rest for the football.

In the video, Azzanni recapped the miracle play and his adjustment following Tennessee’s timeout.

Take a look.
