Florida Beat Tennessee With This Crazy Fourth Down Conversion

Saturday’s Tennessee-Florida game came down to an incredible fourth down play – and an extremely close field goal. The Gators, down by six with less than two minutes to ago, decided to go for gold on a 4th and 14, and boy did it pay off.

Florida quarterback Will Grier hit receiver Antonio Callaway, who managed to scamper to the house for a 63-yard touchdown. It would end up being the game-winning score, as the Volunteers missed their field goal attempt at the end of the game.

It was a very close call for Florida, though.

As for his decision to go for it on fourth down, Florida coach Jim McElwain’s response was simple.

“I don’t like to punt. I don’t know.”

So close Volunteers fans, and yet so far.
