No. 14 Florida rallies to down Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt leads Florida 21-13 at halftime.

With under two minutes remaining in the half, Florida's Freddie Swain returned a punt past midfield - but the return was called back due to a brutal open field block that drew a targeting call and ejection for Florida's James Houston IV.

They'd take the lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter after a 48-yard touchdown run by Jordan Scarlett on the Gators' opening drive.

Apparently, the play ticked off both coaches, as ESPN had a tri-screen, showing Florida coach Dan Mullen and his Vanderbilt counterpart, Derek Mason, getting into a heating exchange at each other.

On a day when the Gators desperately needed their offense to come through, it did in a big, game-altering way.

Maradona: It's Useless Making A Leader Of Messi
The Messi outburst was a different narrative to the one he took when Maradona praised the Barcelona star at the start of this week.

"Great win, great team win", UF coach Dan Mullen said. He spent much of the first half unhappy with the officiating decisions. Two Florida players were ejected on the play.

"Some of it's just lack of execution, but don't go overboard just trying to make a special play".

It came on the first play of the fourth quarter when the Gators trailed by one.

"I was telling [the running backs] all throughout the game and I told them in the locker room that they set up every opportunity for me to even throw the ball", Franks said. "Everyone just believing in me, they've always got my back, like 'Come on, we've still got this.' Stuff like that helped us come back and keep the momentum on our side when it really wasn't". Mullen and Grantham now get the chance to iron out the team's defensive mistakes with an extra week of preparation. Don't try to cowboy and do your own thing.

With the comeback, Florida won its fifth straight this season. We're going to make some adjustments, we're going to scheme some things up, if we need to. "I like the pat on the back rather than the kick in the rear end, so let's just keep working to keep it six inches higher". "We had a lot of mistakes early on in the game, and mistakes happen in football". To their credit, the defensive backs did begin to swarm the Commodores' receivers a bit better after the second half. "I think we responded really well".
