dropping a sure touchdown with less than a minute remaining

And then it did with a hammer. A Feleipe Franks Originate Mary pass traveled 63 meters into the cheap basketball jerseys  end zone and landed right in the lap of Tyrie Cleveland as time expired.

It has not ncaa basketball jersey  been pretty, but the 24th-ranked Gators beat No. twenty-three Tennessee at home on Wednesday, 26-20.

To call the game a battle of wills would be an overstatement.

Was it a struggle of two top-25 teams? Sure. The Gators and Volunteers were ranked -- on paper. And it certainly was a struggle to see two teams fail to execute frequently offensively. The red zone proved to be a place where dreams went to die.

The first time anyone found the end zone was on a pick-six by Florida freshman cornerback CJ Henderson early in the fourth fraction. It was the third interception Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormady used in the game and his sixth turnover in two weeks.

Tennessee's offense had plenty of shots but ultimately came up empty. Every time the Vols entered the red zone, they either were pushed back by the defense, missed a field goal or turned the football over. Even star running back John Kelly, who had more than 220 total meters of offense, failed when it mattered most, dropping a sure touchdown with less than a minute remaining.

That's not to say that Florida was much better.

Gators coach Jim college basketball jerseys  McElwain, who earned his stripes as an offensive coordinator, was the picture of frustration during the college football jersey  game. He paced the sidelines constantly, waving his arms and speaking into his headset in search of answers that wouldn't come.

The good news -- other than a solid effort by the defense -- was that he avoided starting the season 0-2, which the Gators we hadn't done since 1971. The bad news was that his offense showed hardly any signs of life even after moving coordinator Doug Nussmeier from the coaches' box to the field to call plays.

It looked for a while that Florida would continue its offensive touchdown drought, which dated back to the fourth fraction of last season's bowl game, after Malik Davis sprinted more than 70 meters only to have the ball knocked out from behind for a fumble just 2 meters before reaching the end zone. Thankfully for him, Franks stepped in and found Brandon Powell for a 5-yard touchdown pass with 5: 13 remaining in the fourth fraction to break the skills.

Franks has not been stellar overall, completing 20 of 28 passes for 212 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, but he did enough. The running game, meanwhile, picked up the pace for a respectable 168 meters.
