Florida beats Tennessee on miraculous Hail Mary on final play

You didn't need to see anything from Tennessee vs. Florida until the fourth quarter.

There was the pick-six by Florida's CJ Henderson. Then John Kelly responded with a 34-yard touchdown run for the Tennessee Volunteers.

The Vols took away a Florida touchdown by stripping the ball at the goal-line, and after a 28-yard touchdown pass, tied the game at 20 on a field goal.

But it was the Gators' prayers that were ultimately answered.

On the final play of the game, Feleipe Franks threw a 63-yard Hail Mary pass to Tyrie Cleveland who caught the ball in the end zone to end the game.

The pass put Franks over 200 yards on the day. He was 18-of-28 and had two touchdown passes. The Gators hadn't scored an offensive touchdown prior to Franks' first touchdown pass since last season.

It was an exciting finish to put the Gators 1-0 in the SEC East, tied with South Carolina at the top.
