Tennessee kept its slim hopes alive by forcing a Florida turnover at the goal line.
The Volunteers have had a tough go of it on offense Saturday afternoon. QB Quinten Dormady has thrown three interceptions and Vols kickers have left plenty of points on the table, but their defense came up with a huge play in the fourth quarter to keep their hopes alive.
The Gators had just taken control of the ball following the third missed field goal of the game by Tennessee. RB Malik Davis took a handoff and burst into the opening field on what looked to be a surefire touchdown. Unfortunately for Davis, the Volunteers defense caught him at the goal line and forced a fumble out of the back of the end zone for a touchback.
Here a look at the play:

Florida’s offense finally scored its first touchdown of the season in the fourth quarter. The Gators offense previously hadn’t scored a touchdown since the third quarter of the Outback Bowl against Iowa.
Tennessee scored a touchdown following the fumble to make the score 13-10 in the fourth quarter.
