THIS IS SURPSING BECA+’E JOHNSON HASN’TLAYED THE $4 ENTIRE YEAR. HE’S GOING TO DO IT BECAUSE NUMBER ONE IT WILL KEEP HIS PLAY CALLING SECRET. NUMBER TWO, HE FEELS IT WILL DISRUPT NNESSEE’S RHYTHM ON $4 DEFENSE.R6 AND NUMBER THREE, HE CAN COACH HIS QUARTERBACK BETWEEN EACH AY — FOR EXAMPLE, IF THEY BLITZ, GO TO THE SPLI$END AND BECAUSE TENNESSEE DOESN’T DISGUISE THEIR DEFENSES. Craig>>PLAYING AT KNOXVILLE THEY’VE SCORED AND GOT AT THEM EARLY IN THE BALL GAME. THE EMOTIONAL NEEDS OF FLORIDA 5qARE AT QUARTERBACK. Tim>>IT’S A GAME WHOSE IMPACT WILL ECHO THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR — IT’S CONG UP NOW. (Captioning sponsored by U.S. Dept. of Education and CB) (Captioned by Real-Time CaptioningdInc., Van Nuys, Cali) Sean>>THE FL÷IDA GATORS AND THE TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS — SOUTHEASTE CONFERENCE RIVALS WHOSE HARD-HITTING BATTLES IN THE ’90s HAVE OFTEN DETERMINED THE BALANCE OF POWER IN THE SEC. FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS FLORIDA HAS HAD ITWAY ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL. LEAVING THE VOLS FRUSTRATED AND SEARCHING FOR A WAY TO END THE GATORS’ CELEBRATION. STEVE SPURRIER’S REIGN AT FLORIDIS DEFINED BY HIS EXPLOSIVE, HIGH-OCTANE OFFENSE. BUT THIS SEASON, IT IS A TAKE NO PRISONERS DEFENSE THAT IS EXPECTED TO FUEL THE GATORS’ CHAMPIONSHIP RUN. FOR TENNESSEE, FOLK HERO PEYTON MANNING HAS GRADUATED. NOW, THE VOLS DEPEND ONTEE MARTIN AS THEY BEGIN DEFENSE OF THEIR SEC TITLE. THE GATORS AND THE VOLS IN AN SHOWDOWN.

THEY BELIEVE THIS WILL BE THE YEAR THEY END THEIR LOSING STRE. Sean>>WELCOME, EVERYONE, TO KNOXVILLE — A TREMENDOUS SCENE AS TENNESSEE AND FLORIDA GET READY TO REW WHAT HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST INTENSE AND EMOTIONAL RIVAdIES IN ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL. HI, EVERYONE. I’M SEAN MCDONOUGH ALONG WITH TERRY DONAHUE. IT’S GREAT TO HAVE YOU TH US AS TENNESSEE TRIES TO END THIS 5-GAME LOSING STREAK AGAINST FLORIDA. COACH, BEFORE HE CONSIDERED THE GAME PLAN DID TENNESSEE COACH PHILLIP FUER HAVE TO DEALWITH PSYCHOdzGICAL ISSUES? Terry>>ALL THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE IS IN FLORIDA’S COURT. THEY KNOW THEY CAN BEAT TENNESSEE. TENNESSEE HOPES THEY CAN BEAT FLORIDA PHILLIP FULMER DOESN’T WANT TO SPEND TIME ON THE LOSING STREAK. HE WANTS TO TELL HIS FELLOWS WE HAVE LOST 5 YEARS IN A ROW. WE’VE TURNED THE BALL OVER. WE HAVEN’T GOT OUR RUNNING GAMEOING. LET’S HANDLE THE BALL WITH SKILL. GET THE RUNNING GA GOING. IF WE DO, WE CAN BEAT THESE GUYS. Sean>>WHEN WE TALKED WITH HIM YESTERDAY WE ASKED HIM Y IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT THIS TIME AROUND, PHILLIP FULMER DID SAY I TRULY BELIEVE THIS YEAR WE CAN RUN THE FOOTBALL. Terry>>I THINK NOT ONLY THE COACHES BUT THE PLAYERS AT TENNESSEE BELIEVE THEY CAN RUN THE BALL BECAUSE OF THEIR OUTSTANDING TAILBACK JAMAL LEWIS. JAMAL LEWIS RUSHED FOR 1300 YARDS LAST YEAR. HE’S STRONGER. MORE EXPERIENCED THIS YEAR. HE’S A POWERFUL FORCE IN THAT RUNNING GAME. BUT TENNESSEE IS ALSO DIFFERENT BECAE OF THEIR QUARTERBACK, TEE MARTIN. HE’S A MOBILE QUARTERBACK. HE WILL BE Terry>>IF HE CAN ND LANES IT ON SCRAMBLE IN, HE CAN MAKE IT HARD ON THE FLORIDA FENSE. Sean>>IT WON’T BE DIFFERENT FOR TENNESSEE THIS YEAR IF THE OFFENSIVE LINE PLAY IS NOT BETTER THAN IT WAS A YEAR AGO IN GAINESVILLE. Sean>>THE FLORA FRONT 7 NHANDLED THE TENNESSEE LINE FORCING BAD THROWS FROM PEYTON MANNING. Terry>>IF THERE IS A BETTER DEFENSIVE FRONT IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL TODAY I HAVEN’T SEEN IT THAN FLORIDA’S. Terry>>THEIR JOB IS TO STOP THE MIDDLE, DRAW DOUBLE-TEAM BLOCKS AND TENNESSEE IS GOING TO HAVE A HARD TIME RUNNING THE BALL AGAINST THAT 7-MAN FRONT TONIGHT. Sean>>ONE OTHER NOTE ABOUT FLORIDA, THE GENTLEMAN WE WERE DISCUSSING IN THE STUDIO, STEVE SPURRIER IS CONSIDERING ROTING QUARTERBACKS AGAIN TONIGH FORMULA THAT WORKED LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR IT WILL BE DOUG JOHNSON AND JESSE PALMER PERHS ALTERNATING PLAY BY PLAY. LET’S HEAD DOWN TO THE SIDELINES AND MIKE MAYOCK. Mike>>aLAST YEAR THE FLORIDA FRONT 7 MANHANDLED TENNESE UP FRONT. WHEN COACPHILLIP FULMER LOOKED FOA NEW OFFENSIVE LINE COACH. Mike>>HEN I ASKED COACH BARRY WHY THIS AR WOU BEa DIFFERENT THAN LAST YEAR GIVEN THE FACTTHEY’VE GOT THE SAME PERSONNEL ON BOTH SIDES HE SAID WE’VE MADE FOUR SITION ANGES. 5- Mike>>NUMBER 22, WE’RE GOING TO MAKE A COMMITMENT TO THE RUNNING GAME ALL NIGHT. SEAN, YOU KNOW WHAT? IF YOU’VE GOT JAMAL LEWIS, YOU BETTERSTAY COITTED TO THAT RUN GAME. Sean>>HERE COME THE VOLUNTEERS! Sean>>FROM THE OTHER END OF THE STADIUM, THE FLORT GATORS>>FLORIDA AND TENNESSEE — THE OPENING KICK OFF IN MOMENT. Sean>>IN THE ’90s IT’S BEEN A GAME OF TREMDOUS SIGNIFICANCE WITHIN THE SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE AND NATIONALLY. TENNESSEE ELECTED TO RECEIVE. JEFF ANDLER, A FRESHMAN FROM JACKSONVILLE TO KICK OFF FOR THE GATORS. TRAVIS STEPHENS AT T ONE YARDLINE Sean>>$áNNESSEE LED MARTIN IN HIFIRST SEASON AS STARTING QUARTERBACK TRNGIN HIS FIRST TRY TO DO SOMETHING PEYTON MANNING COULD NOT DO IN FOUR YEARS AT TENNESSE, DEFEAT FLORIDA AND THREE OF THOSE TIMES PEYTON MANNING WAS THE STTING QUARTERBACK. MAIN IS A DUAL THAT BOTH THROWING AND RUNNING, HAD A TOU OVER SYRACUSE $:O WEEKAGO, BUT DID DO DAMAGE ON THE GROUND. WITH 81 YARDS RUSHING. OFFSET “I” WITH JAMAL LEWIS THE TAILBACK IN MOVEME ALONG THE LEFT SIDE OF THE OFFENSIVE LI. LOOK LIKE CHAD CLIFTON, THE LEFT TACKLE, MOVED EARLY. COACH, VITAL FOR TENNESSEE TO GET OFF TO A OD START. Terry>>IT CERTAINLY IS. EY HAVE PLAYED WELL IN THE FIRST QUARTER AGAINST FLORIDA AND IT’S INTERESTING, FLORIDA IMMEDIATELY IS AN 8-MAN T. THEY’VE GOT 8 PLAYERS UP THERE ALONG THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. THEY EXPECT TENNESSEE TO RUN THE BALL, AND I THINK TENNESSEE WILL RUN THE BALL — MAYBE NOT ONTHE FIRST PLAY OF THE GAME, BUT THEY’RE GOING TO RUN ITONIGHT. Sean>>SAME FORMATION. ON 1st AND 15. THEY HAND IT OFF TO LEWIS AND THE GATORS ARE READY FOR M — ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR JAMAL LEWIS. MIKE PETERSON UP FROM H LINEBACKER POSITION. Sean>>A VETERAN GROUP, THEY HAD THEIR EXPERIENCELAST YEAR IN GAINVILLE. STRAIGHT AHEAD AGAIN, D TWO YARDS FOR LEWIS, OUT TOHE 17 YARDLINE. TACKLED BY JOHNNY RUTLEDGE. Sean>>3rd AND 13. VERY CONSERVATIVE PLAY CLING FOR TENNESSEE. OUT TO THE 24 YARDLINE. ARE THEY TRYING TO SEND A MESSAGE? Terry>>I THINK THERE IS NO QUESTION ON 3rd AND 13 YOU E BACKED UP IN YOUR OWN FIELD, YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR YOUNG QUARTERBACK, TEE MARTIN DOESN’T MAKE A CRITICAL MISTAKE DOWN THERE KICK THE BALL. TRY TO PLAY GOOD DEFENSE. THE FLORIDA DEFENSIVE TEAM CERTAINLY STUFFED THE RUN ON ALL THREE OF THOSE PLAYS. Sean>>DAVID LEAVERTON TO PUNT. TRAVIS MCGRIF4WAITING FOR THE PUNT. VIRTUALLY NO BREEZE IN THE STADIUM. A VERY WARM NIGHT HERE IN OXVILLE. Sean>>TRAVIS MCGRIFF TAKEN DO AT THE 34 YARDLINE!$, 3UDERRICK EEDMONDS SAVE TOUCHDOWN FOR TENNESSEE. Terry>>SOMETIMES, YOU WANT YOUR PU RETURNER JUST TO MAKE SURE HE 5mm HANDLES THE BALL AND HAS TO MAKE SOMEONE MISS. TRAVIS MCGRIFF DID JUST THAT HE MAKES ONPLAYER MISS — ANOTH,, ANOTHER, THEN BREAKS OUT INTO THE CLEAR. SOMETIMES, YOU NEVER MAKE BLOCKS FOR PUNT RETURNERS; THEY HAVE TO DO IT ON THEIR OWN. IN TH CASE, TRAVIS MCGRIFF DID IT ON HIS OWN. Sean>>GOOD RUNBACK BY THE SENIOR FROM GAINESVILLE. CROWD NOISE TRYING TO HOSPITAL TENNESSEE DEFENSE. Sean>>CROWD NOE TRYING T÷HOSPITAL TENNESSEE DEFENSE. MOVEMENT ALONG THE OFFENSIVE LINE. WE MENTIONED THE QUICK STARTS FOR THE THE GATORS. Referee>>5-YARD PENALTY, 1st DOWN. Se>>STEVE SPURRIER INDICATING TO JESSE PALMER THAT HE KNOWS THE NOISE IS A PRLEM AND HERE WE GO WITH THE ROTATING QUARTERBACKS. DOUG JOHNSON NOW IN ON 1st AND 15. Sean>>THEY DID THIS $, SUCCESSFULLY AGAINST FLORIDA STAT HO LAST YEAR. DRAW — TERRY JACKSON. DRAGGED DOWN FROM BEHIND BY SHAUN ELLIS. Terry>>SHAUN, THER,IS A LOT OF INTERESTING REASONS WHY STEVE SPURRIER WANTS TO SWITCH QUARTERBACKS EVERY DOWN. FIRST OF ALL, HE SAYS THE QUARTERBACKS ARE THE SAME. WHEN YOU HAND THE BALL OFF LIKE THIS, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU’RE PLAYING JESSE PALMER OR DOUG JOHNSON. SECONDLY, HE CAN GET HIS PLAYS IN QUIC AND BECAUSE HE DOESN’THAVE TO — DOESN’$HA TO SIGNAL THE WIDE RECEIVERS AND THIRD, HE CAN COACH THE QUARTERBACK RIGHT BEFORE HE GOES OUT ONTO THE FIELD TO DO WHAT HE WANTS HIM TO DO WITH THE BALL. Sean>>3rd DOWN AND LONG AND MOVEMENT AGAIN — AND THE CROWD NOIS, IS CREATING A PROBLEM FOR THE GATORS. LOOKED LIKE CHESTON BLACKSHEAR, NUMBER 77. MOVED BEFORE THE SNAP. Referee>>DEAD BALL. FALSE START. ON THE OFFENSE. Sean>>BILL GOSS IS THE REFEREE LEADING THIS SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE OFFICIATING CREW. $d Sean>>THE THROW CAUGHT TRAVIS TAYLOR — AND HE’S VMRY CLOSE TO A 1st DOWN. AT THE YARDLINE. LOOKS TO BE ABOUT A HALF-YARD SHORT. FRED WHITE DE THE TACKLE FOR TENNESSEE. Terry>>TRAVIS TAYLOR IS FAST BECOMING THE GO-$z GUY IN THAT $, FLORIDA OFFENSE HE RUNS AN INSIDE CURL. HE JUST RUNS TO THE INSIDE. THE BALL IS WELL THROWN, ON TIME. HE KNIFES UP THE FIELD FOR A BIG IN. WATCH THIS MAN ALL NIGHT LONG– TRAVIS TAYLOR. HE’S AVERAGING 25 YARDS PER CATCH THIS SEASON. Sean>>PALMER BACK IN AT QUARTERBACK. JACKSON LUNGES AHEAD FOR THE 1st DOWN. MANAGED TO BOUNCE OFF THE HEADOFDEON GRANT TO GAIN THE NECESSARY YARDAGE. 1st AND 10LORIDA.$, Sean>>DOUG JOHNSON AT QUARTERBACK FOR FLORIDA. HE WILL THROW. TOWA THE END ZONE — OVERTHROWN. LOOKING FOR TRAVIS MCGRIFF. DWAYNE GOODRICH D GOOD COVERAGE. THERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHATOU WERE TALKING ABOUT — NO NEED TO SIGNAL THE PLAYS, GIVE THE PLAY DIRECTLY TO THE QUARTERBACK AND HE CAN OFFER ADVICE FOR BOTH QUARTERBACKS. Terry>>THAT’S THE BEAUTY OF THE SYSTEM, AND ‘S SO UNUSUAL. STEVE SPURRIER PROBLY IS T ON COACH IN COLLEGE OR PRO FOOTBALL THAT WOULD HAVE THE GUTS TO ROTATE QUARTERBACKS BY DOWNS. A LOT OF PEOPLE ROTATE THEM BYSERIESR BY QUARTERS. BUT BY DOS — IT’S NOT DONE IN O FOOTBALL. Sean>>ROBERT GILLESPIE, A TRUE FRESHMAN WENT IN MOTION OUT OF THE BACKFIELD. JESSE PALMER WANTSA TIME OUT. PLAY CLOCK WAS AT 5 AS THE SOPHOMORE, PALMER, CALLED FOR THE TIME OUT. STEVE SPURRIERECIDED TO SEND DOUG JOHNSON BACK IN ON2nd D 10 AT THTENNESSEE 23. (Whistle) Sean>>WHISTLES AND FLAGS BEFORE THE PLAY. )[ Referee>>THERE WAS AN EQUIPMENT VIOLATION. TIME OUT CHARGED TO THE OFFENSE.>ALL PLAYERS, SEAN, MUST BE IN PROPER UNIFORM AND UNIFORM THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SQUAD, AND MAYBE ONE GUY HAD ONE SOCK ON AND NOT ANOTHER SOCK ON. YOU JUST DON’T KNOW. I KNOW THIS. THE OFFICIALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE ENFORCING THAT RULE, THIS SEASON. Sean>>THREE RECEIVERS OUT TO THE LT. JACKSON WENT OUT IN THE PASS PATTERN. A LOW THROW BY JOHNSON HANDLED BYTRAVIS TAYLOR AND HE’S OUT OF BOUNDS SHORT OF A 1st 5m DOWN JUST INSIDE THE 16 YARDLINE– RAYNOCH R6 THOMPSON CHASED HIM OUT. Terr>TRAVIS TAYLOR IS OUTSIDE. HE’S THE WIDE MAN IN YOUR PICTURE. HE JUST RUNS A LITTLE STOP ROUTE. THE BALL ISDELIRED TO HIM. NOW HIS JOB IS TO DEFEAT THE DEFENSIVE BACK, AND IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE HE DOES. HE RUNS GOODRICH AND MAKES A POSITIVE GAIN. IT’S A SHORT LITTLE PASS, T IT TURNS INTO A PRETTY BIG PLAY FOR FLORIDA. Sean>>TWO CATCHES ALREADY FOR TAYLOR. HE HAD IN THE FIRST TWO GAMES — EASY VICTORIES OVER THE CITADEL AND NORTHEAST LOUISIANA. JESSE PALMER BACK IN. HE THROWS TO TAYLOR. st) Sean>>TAYLOR HAS A 1st DOWN AT THE 12 YARDLINE. STEVE JOHNSON HAD THE COVERAGE] WHEN WE TALKED WITH JOHN CHAVIS, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR TENNESSEE EARLIER IN THE WEEK, COACH, HE SAID FLORIDA REALLY HASN’T DETERMIN WHO THERE GO-TO RECEIVER IS YET WITH THE DEPARTURE OF JACQUEZ GREEN. Terry>>E COORDINATOR IN THE CENTER OF THE SCREEN HAS A TOUGH JOB TRYING TO GET HIS HANDS AROUND THIS FLORIDA OF4áNSE BUT I THINK TRAVIS TAYLOR IS THE MAN OF THE HOUR FOR FLORIDA. HE THE PLAYER WITH THE BIG-PLAY POTENTIAL. Sean>>WE MIGHT BE IN THE PROCESS OF IDENTIFYING HIM AS THEIR BIG-PLAY GO-TO RECEIVER. JACKSON STRUGGLED TO GET OUT OF T CKFIELD ON 1st AND 10. RAYNOCH THOMPSON ON THE ST — TERRY JACKSON IS A SENIOR FROM GAINESVILLE. RIPPED UP HIS KNEE IN THE 4th GAME LAST SEASON AGAINST KENTUCKY. MISSED THE REST OF THE YEAR. HE’S BACK IN THERE NOW AND TRYING TO PHIL THE SHOES — TRYING TO FILL THE SHOES OF FRED TAYLOR yO WENT ON TO THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE WITH THE JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS AS A 1st ROUND PICK. WE’RE TOLD THE EQUIPMENT VIOLATION WAS FOR A MOUTHPIECE VIOLATION AGAINST ONE OF THE FLORIDA OFFENSIVE LINEMEN. JESSE PALMER THE QUARTERBACK. ON 2nd AND LONG.$, HE THROWS INTO THE FLAT. (Whistle) Sean>>STRUGGLING FOR THE LE– THE PYLON WAS TERRY JACKSOBUT THEY SPOT HIM NEAR THE 3 YARDLINE. DEON GRANT CHOPPED HIM DOWN. Terry>>TIRRY JACKSON LINED UP AS THE HALF BACK AND RAN A HALF ROUTE. TERRY JACKSON IS AN EXCELLENT RECEIVER OUT OF THE BACKFIELD. SEANAS YOU POINTED OUT, HE’S REAY THE ART AND SOUL OF THIS 4bORIDA OFFENSE IN MY OPINLzN TH GUY WAS A LINEBACKER. PLAYED FULLBACK. PLAYED TAILBACK. CA$HES THE BALL. BLOCKS. RUNS. HE DOES IT ALL. Sean>>3rd DOWN AND 1 AT THE 3. DOUG JOHNSON THE QUARTERBACK MOVING UP AND DOWN THE LINE. JACKSON. TO THE GOAL NE — LOST THE FOOTBALL — YNOCH THOMON RECOVERS IN E END ZONE FOR TENNESSEE! Terry>>TALK ABOUT A GREADEFENSIVE STAND BY A UNIT, TENNESSEE’S GOT TO BE THRILLED WITH THE WAY THIS DEFENSE WENT IN THERE, STRIPPED THAT BALL, RECOVERED IT AND KEPT THAT SCORING DRIVE FROM HAPPENING RIGHT THER,. NUMBER 27, AL WILSON, THE MIDDLE LINEBACKER HELPED STRIP IT. IT COMES LOOSE. Sean>>DEON GRANT ALSO PUT HIS HEADN THE FOOTBALL AND RAYNOCH THOMPSON RECOVERED. IN THIS GAME IT’S FLORIDA MAKING THE TENNESSEE, AT ITS OWN 20 AFTER E BIG FUMBLE BY JACKSON — THAT PASS BATTED DOWN. NEARLY A LATERAL. GEVON KEARSE GOT >>JEVON KEARSE GOT IN THE AIR AND KNOCKED DOWN THE PASS FROM TEE RT. COACH SPURRIER WASN’T PLEASED WITH THE WAY HIAM PLAYED IN WINS OVER THE CITADEL AND NORTHEAST LOUISIANA. THEY LOST SIX FUMBLES IN THOSE TWO>STEVE TALKED TO HITEAM ALL WEEK LONG, HEY, FELLOWSdIF WE’RE GOING TO BEAT TENNESSEE WE NEED TO BLOCK THAT BALL BETTER AND SURE ENOUGH, THAT SCORING DRIVE TAKEN AWAY BY A FUMBLE. Sean>>JEVON KEARSE IN QUICKLY TO PUT PRESSURE ON MARTIN. Terry>>KEARSE MIGHT VERYWELL BE ONE OF THE BEST LINEBACKERS IN THE COUNTRY — IF NOT THE BEST. HE’S A VERY QUICK, ACTIVE ATHLETE RIGHT THERE TRYI TOTHROW OVER HIM IS SO HARD FOR A QUARTERBACK LIKE TEE MARTIN WHO COMES OUT THERE WITHOUT PROTECTION. HE’S ON A NAKED BOOTG AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU SEE BIG NUMBER 42 IN YOUR FACE — THAT’S HARD. Sean>>THERE IS BOB STOOPS, THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR THE UNIVSITY OF FLORIDA. ( Sean>>3rDOWN AND 10 NO SCORE LESS THAN MIDWAY THROUGH E FIRST QUARTER. Sean>>AFLAG TOWN FOR DELAY OF GAME AS MART $zOK TOO MUCH TIME. Sean>>MARTIN WITH A DEEP THROW, IT’S INTERCEPTED! PICKED OFF BY TEAKO BROWN — THE 11th OF HIS CAREER. AND FLIDA HAS IT IN GOOD FIELD POSITION AT THE 41ARINE. THERE IS A FLAG DOWN BEHIND THE PLAY — YOU SAW SOME PUSHING AN SHOVING, AND THERE MIGHT BE A PERSONAL FOUL, UNSPORTSMAN-LIKE CONDUCT HERE. Terry>>YOURREATEST FEAR WHEN YOU HAVE A YOUNG QUARTERBACK LIKE MARTIN, WHEN HE’S PRESSURED HE WILL THROW INTO COVERAGE. FLORIDA HAS GREAT COVERAGE ON THIS BALL. TEAKO BROWN SIMPLY WAITS TO RECEIVE IT. L”‘S JUST A GREAT PLAY BY THE FLORIDA DEFENSE. Referee>>AFTER THE PLAY IS DEAD, THERIS A DEADBALL FOUL ON FLORIDA. PENALTY WILL BE 15 YARDS. IT WILL BE 1st AND 10. Terry>>THAT PENALTY CERTAINLY HELPS. IT’S A LATE HIT ON TEE MARTIN. IT CERTAINLY HELPS TENNESSEE IN TERMS OF FIELD POSITION. IF THAT DEFENSE CAN JUST GO IN THERE AND HOLD, NOW, D NOT GIVE UP SOME POINTS EARLY IN THIS GAME, THE LONGER THEY LIVE, THE HARDER THEY WILL FIGHT. Sean>>FLORIDA BACKS UP TO ITS OWN 44. ANOTHER KEY MISTAKE. BLITZ ON. THEY HIT PALMER AS HE THREW — TRAVIS TAYLOR OUT THER,b INCOMPLETE, A FLAG THROWN, PASS INTERFERENCE, IT WILL BE A PENALTY AGAINST STEVE JOHNSON. WILL OVERSTREET, A TRUE FRESHMAN, DELIVERED THE HIT TO PALMER AS HE THREW IT AND THAT MIGHT HAVE LED TO THE PENALTY. THE BALL WAS UNDERTHROWN AND THAT MA IT TOUGH FOR JOHNSON TO COVER. Terry>>I THINK THAT’S RIGHT. YOU CAN SEE THE QUARTERBACK GETS HIT AS HE’S RELEASING E BALL. TRAVIS TAYLOR RUNS A LITTLE OUT AND UP. HE PUSHES OFF. JOHNSON TRIES TO RECOVER. CLOSE CALL, BUT IT’S PASS INTERFERENCE. Sean>>AGAINST JOHNSO A SENIOR FROM POWDER SPRINGS, FLORIDA, A BACK-UP LAST YEAR MOVES IN AS A STARTER THIS YEAR AS TERRY FAIR HAS DEPARTED TO T NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, THE DETROIT LIONS. Terry>>IT’S NOT ALL THAT DISTANCELIKE IT IS IN PRO FOOTBALL, SIMPLY A PENALTY FROM THE PREVIOUS SPOT. Sean>>15 YARDS, MOVING THE BALL TO THE 41 YARDLINE OF TENNESSEE. TERRY JACKSON. LUNGES AHEAD. THEY WILL GIVE HIM FORWARD PROGRESS TO THE 39 4zR A GAIN OF 2. Sean>>NO SCO. NEARLY MIDWAY THROUGH THE 1st QUARTER. 8 Se>>GREAT GAMES ON THE DOCKET TOMORROW — THE INITIAL — THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, TOMORROW ON CBS SPORTS. JESSE PALMER FAKED THE HANDOFF, WIDE OPEN, ROBERT GILLESPIE THE TRUE FRESHMAN INSIDE E 5 AND DOWN IN NEAR $, THE 2. 37 YARDS. ON THE PASS PLAY DEON GRANT SAVED THE TOUCHDOWN. Terry>>TENNESSEE BROKE A COVERAGE, RE. GILLESPIE, THE TAILBACK, RUNS A LITTLE FAKE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE. WATCH HIM RIGHT THE. HE’S THE MAN YOU WANT TO FOLLOW. HE’S THE GUY. THEY’RE GOING TO RUN A FAKE TO HIMTHEN COME BACK, FAKE THE REVERSE. HE GOES DOWN THE MIDDLE, WIDE OPEN. SOMEBODY BUSTED A VERAGE FOR TENNESSEE AND HE SCOO DOWN THE SIDELINE. Sean>>1st ANGOAL FROM THE 3. JACKSON. WHO FUMBLED MOMENTS AGO, AT THE GOAL LINE CAREFUL WITH THE BALL THAT TIME AND AL WILSON KNOCKED HIM DOWN. ANOTHER THING PHILLIP FULMER SAID AS WE CHATTED WITH HIM DURING THE WEEK, WE HAVE TO STOP GIVINGUP BIG PLAYS TO FLORIDA. THAT’S BEEN A PROBLEM IN RECENT YEARS. HERE WAS ANOTHER. Dana>>THAT WAS A GREAT JOB>COACHING BY STEVE SPURRIER ON OFFENSE. HE KNEW THAT TENNESSEE, THERE WAA GOOD LIKELYHOOD EY WOULD BE IN MAN TO N COVERAGE. HE REVERSED TH, LINEBACKERS WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO COVER THE TAILBACK. Sean>>JESSE PALMER, HANDS OFF, JACKSON LOSES GROUND — FRED WHITE AND AL WILSON AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE. JEFF COLEMAN ALSO INON THE ST FOR TENNESSEE. AL WILSON HAS MOVED FROM OUTSIDE LINEBACKER TO MIDDLE LINEBACKER THIS YEAR WITH THE DEPARTURE OF THE ALL AMERICAN LEONARD LITTLE AND HE’S BEEN MAKING ALL THE PLAYS. Terry>>HE’S THE EMOTIONAdLEADER OF THIS DEFENSE. HE’STH,MAN THEY WANT TO FOLLOW. HE’S AN EXCELLENT PLAYER. HAS EAT SPEED AND NGE. Sean>>3rd AND GOAL FROM THE 4. Sean>>DOUG JOHNSON BACK AT QUARTERBACK. EMY BACKELD. TO THE END ZONE– $, INCOMPLETE OFF THE FINGERTIPS OF TRAVIS TAYLOR. HERE COMES THE FIELD GOAL UNIT — THE FIRST FIELD GOAL ATTEMPT OF THE SEASON FOR FLORIDA UPCOMING. $árry>>FLORIDA TRIED TO ISOLATE THREE RECEIVERTO ONE SIDE OF THE FIELD. DOUG JOHNSON THROWS THE, BALL JUST A LITTLE HIGH. IT’S A GREAT ATTEMPT TO BRING IT DOWN, BUT IT’S JUST A LITTLE BIT HIGH. TRAVIS TAYLOR, ONCE $, AGAIN, E MAN THAT STEVE SPURRIER IS TRYING TO GET THE BALL TO. Sean>>THIS IS ABOUT THE EQUIVALENT OF AN EXTRA POINT — THE HOLD OF BILLY YOUNG, THE KICK IS GOOD, AND $, FLORIDA IS SUCCESSFUL ITS FIRST FIELD GOAL ATTEMPT OF THE SEASON. THE GATORS LEAD AGAIN. COLLINS COOPER. CAPPING A 52-YARD DRIVE, 6 PLAYS, AND JEFF CHANDL, WILL KICK OFF FOR THE SECOND TIME TONIGHT FOR THE GATORS AND TRAVIS STEVENS IS BACK AT THE GOALLINE. THE FIRST TI AROUND CHANDLER BOOMED ONE TOHE BACK OF THE END ZONE. THIS ONE RETURNABLE FROM THE GOALLINE. TRAVIS EVENS WITH RNI ROOM OUTSIDE. IT WAS THE KICKER, JEFF CHANDLER, WHO MADE THE TACKLE. OUT TO THE 36 YARDLE. 5m Sean>>KEVIN JAS STARS IN THE SHOW THAT TV GUIDE PICKED AS ONOF ITS AND IT HAS JEY STILLER. Terry>>SEAN, THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SERIES FOR TENNESSEE. THE FIRST TWO SERIES WERE NOTHING FOR THEIR OFFENSIVE TEAM; EY NEED TO ESTABLISH SOME KIND OF RHYTHM AGAINST THIS FLORIDA DEFENSE Sean>>THEY’RE TRYING TO ESTABLISH THE RUN, AND PERHAPS AT’S A ART AS JAMAL LEWIS ID AHEAD TOHE 43 YARD LINE, A GAIN OF 7. TRIPPED UP BY KEARSE. Terry>>THERE IS QUESTION WHETHER THE TENNESSEE LINE CAN BLOCK THIS FLORIDA DEFENSE AND CERTAINLTONIGHT THAT’S GOING TO BE ONE OF THEKEYS TO THIS GAME — WHETHER OR NOT THEY CAN PUNCSOME HOLES IN THERE FOR JAMAL LEWIS. $d Sean>>TEE MARTIN WITH A WORD 4zR AN BRYSON THE FULLBACK HE MAY ! TOUCHDOWN TENNESSEE! 7(Band playing)7 Terry>>TENNESSEE TOOK A PAGE OUT OF L.S.’S PLAY BOOK, RUNNING UP THE MIDDLE WITH THEIR FULLBACK HTING THE DEFENSE AS FASTAS THEY CAN,, THERE IS NOT A SAFETY IN THE MIDDLE, AND SHAWN BRYSON, THE FULLBACK WHO HARDLY CARRIES THE BALL, AND LOOK AT THE OFFENSIVE LINE COACH — KNOWS HE FINALLY PIERCED THAT FLORIDA DEFENSE. Sean>>WHATEVER TEE MARTIN SAID TO BRYSON BEFORE THE HANDOFF, IT WAS WORDS OF WISDOM FROM THE QUARTERBA. GOES TENNESSEE HAS THE LEAD. Terry>tTHERE IS NO QUESTION, VERYELDOM, LAST YEAR, WHEN TENNESSEE PLAYED FLORIDA, DID YOU EVER SEE THAT OFFENSIVE LINE REALLY SURGE OFF THE BALL, BUT ON THAT LAST PLAY, THEY CERTAINLY DID.5m Sean>>JEFF HALL’S KICKOFF TO BO CARROLL, ONE OF THE FASTEST MEN IN THE COULD PICKUP SPEED AS HE WAS TACKLED BY TAD LDEN AT T 20 YARDLINE. Terry>>WHEN YOU STUDY FENSIVE LINEMEN YOU WANT TO SEE THE VELOCITY WITH WHICH THEY COM OFF THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE FOR THE FIRST THREE, FOUR YARDS AND THERE IS A GAPING HOLE FOR THAT FULLBACK TO RUN THROUGH AND THERIS NO SAFETY MAN IN THE MIDDLEF THE DEFENSE SO CONSEQUENT, HE HAS A CLEAR SAIL TO THE END ZONE. TONY GEGE TRYING TO CATC HIM, BRYSON IS TOO FAST AND TOO GOOD. Sean>>WE DIDN’T SEE ANY OF THAT FROM TENNESSEE LAST YEAR IN GAINESVIL, THAT’S FOR Y RE, THE GATORS CLEA RATTLED AND PALM, USES A TIME $, OUT. Sean>>THEY SEEM TO BE HAVING MORE DIFFICULTY WHEN PALMER IN THE GAME. THEY HAD THE TWO PROCEDURE Y WITH PAER IN THE GA, NOW THEY BURN ANOTHER TIME OUT WITH JESSE AT QUARTERBACK. Terry>>STEVE MAY GET TIRED OF THE PROCEDURALENALTIES. I’M NOT SURE WHOSE FAULT IT IS BUT REGARDLESS, HE MAY SETTLE DOWN AND JUST GO WITH ONE QUARTERBACK FOR A WHILE AND LET HIM PLAY AND GET A RHYTHM. THE NOISE HE IS DEAFENING, SEAN, AS YOU HA POINTED OUT. THE OTHER THING IS THINK ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL LIFT TENNESSEE NOW HAS FINALLY SCORING IN THE t QUARTER AGAINST FLORIDA. Sean>>ONLY ONCE IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS HAVE THEY HAD THE EARLY LEAD AGAINST FLORIDA — A BIG EARLY LEAD WHICH THEY BLEW. 5m Sean>>THE BUD ONE AIRSP WHICH REMINDS YOU THAT FRESH BEER TASTES BETTER. $, Sean>>ALL SIX SC÷ING DRIVES FOR TENNESSEE IN THE WIN AT SYRACUSE WERE UNDER THREE MINUTES — THEY HAVE BEEN A QUICK-STKE TEAM THIS YEAR. BRYSON THE TOUCHDOWN FROM 57 YAS ON THE RUN. JOHNSON SETTING UP A SCREEN.5- TERRY JACKSON SIDESTS A TACKLER. PICKS UP ABOUT6 BEFORE HE GOT BURIED ALONG THE NEAR SIDELINE. HE W HIT HARD BY BILLY RATLIFF, A RESERVE DEFENSIVE TACKLE, JUNIOR FROM MAGNOLIA, MISSSIPPI — HAD A FRIGHTENIN NECK INJURY AT MIDSEASON LAST YE, HAD TEAMMATES PRAYING ON THE PRACTICE FI,bD, THEY WERE SO CONCERNED HE MIGHT BE PARALYZED BUT HERE HE BACK AND : PLAYING. Terry>>HE READ THE SCREEN, GOT INTO THE PURSUIT, MADE THE NICE TACKLE. Sean>>2nd AND 4. THEY STICK WITH THE ROTATION — JESSE PALMER, SOPHOMORE FROM ONTARIO, CANADA. JACKSON COULDN’T GET PAST THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. CHRIS RAMSEUR, A RESERVE LINEBACKER. Mike>>KUDOS WILL GO TO THE TRAINER IF THEY KEEP PLAYING LIKE THI. WESTMORELAND ROED THE ANKLE OVER WEDNESDAY, LOOKED LIKHE WOULDN’T PLAY. THEY KEPT HIM OVERNIT IN THE TRAINING CENTER WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY WHERE A TEAM OF DOCTORS AND TRAINERS WOKE HIM UP EVERY TWO HOURS TO GIVE HIM TREATMENT. THE ANKLE CAME ALONG TREMENDOUSLY AND HE’S PERFORMING VERY SOLIDLY TONIGHT. Sean>>ON THE SIDELINE AT THE MOMENT, IN THIS 3rd DOWN AND 4 SIATION WITH DOUG JOHNSON AT THE HELM FOR E GATORS. Sean>>JOHNSON HAS TO GET RID OF IT. THROWS FOR A 1st DOWN. TERRY JACKSON. OUT ACROSS THE 35. UPENDED BY STEVE JOHNSON. COREY TERRY PUT A POP ON DO JOHNSON JUST AFTER HE RELEASED TH FOOTBALL. Terry>>TERRY CKSON JUST RELEASED OUT INTO THE FLAT. ON AGAIN, THAT’S THE SECOND TIME THAT STEVE SPURRIER HAS HAD HIM JUST GO OUT IN THE FLAT. THE QUAR$áRBACK FINDS HIM, GIVES HIM THE BALL; IT’S A POSITIVE GAIN EVERY TIME THEY’VE RUN THAT PLAY. Sean>>JESSE PALMER WITH ROBERT GILLESPIE, THE TRUE FRESHMAN NOW AT TAILBACK GIVING JACKSON THE BREATHER AFTER THAT RECEION. PALMER DPS IT SHORT FOR LITTLEOR NO GAIN — GILLESPIE TACKD QUICKLY. WE CHK IN WITH NEW YORK. Tim>>MIAMI WI A CALIFORNIA KID WITH A CANN FOR AN ARM. SCOTT COVINGTON GOES 47 YARDS TO MOSS. U WILL SEETHE ‘CANES NEXT WEEK AT NOON EASTERN HERE ON CBS. Sean>>VIRGINIAECH AND AMI, TWO REASONS WHY THE BIEAST FEELS THEY ARE STRONGER THIS YEAR. JOHNSON THROWS — CAUGHT AND DROPPED — IS IT A CATCH? NO! THE OFFICIALS COME RUNNING INLATE AND CALLED IT AN INCOMPLETE PASS. FRED WHITE HAD $, COVERAGE. ON TRAVIS TAYLOR. Terry>>IT’S THE SAME PLAY FLORIDA N FARLIER IN THE GAME. TRAVIS TAYLOR JUST TURNS INSIDE. THE BALL IS PERFECTLY ) THROWN. AND STEVE JOHNSON STRIPPED IT, DID A GREAT JOB KNOCKING IT OUT OF H HANDS AT THE SA TIME IT ARRIVED. Sean>>NOW A BIG 3rd DOWN. 3rd AND A LONG 9. VERY NEARLY 10. Terry>>JOHN CHAVIS, THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR 4zR TENNESSEE TOLD US, SEANd WAS MORE COERD ABOUT 3rd DOWN THAN ANY OTHER DOWN BECAUSE LAST YEAR [ FLORIDA SCORED THREE TIS ON HIM IN THIRD DOWN. Sean>>THEY GOT THAT PLAY OFF — JUST BARELY. PALMER RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE AND NOW THERE IS A FLAG. THEY MIGHT RULE THIS DELAY OF GAME WHICH WOULD BE A BREAK FOR FLORIDA, IN THAPALMER CAME UP NOWHERE NEAR 1st DOWNYARDAGE, BUT AGAIN, A PROBLEM WITH MANAGEMENT ALONG THE LINE OF SCMMAGE WHEN $, PALMER IS IN THE GAM $, Referee>>BEFORE THE SNAP THERE WAS A DELAY OF GAME ON THE OFFEE. THERE WAS NO PLAY. 5-YARD PENALTY.$, TELL BE 3rd DOWN. — IT WILL BE 3rd DOWN. Terry>>ONE OF THE THINGS, WATCHING STEVE SPURRIER OVER THE LAST TWO AND A HALF YEARS THAT WE HAVE BEE COVERING E FLORIDA GATORS, HE WILL TEND TO GET A LITTLEIMPATIENT. IF HIS OFFENSE DOESN’T MOVE THE WAY HE WANTS ITTO, HE WILL YANK A QUARTERBACK OR START THROWING THE BALL AROUND THAT FIELD. HE WANTS THOSE CHAINS TO MOVE. HE’S AN OFFENSIVE GEUS AND HE WANTS THAT BALL UP AND DOWN THE FIELD. Sean>>DOUG JOHNSON FRESH FROM THE POCKET AND DROPPED! NEAR THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE BY SHAUN ELLIS. SO TENNESSEE, LEADING BY 4 POINTS WITH 2 MINUTES REMAINING IN THE 1st QUARTER LL GETHE BALL BACK BY A PUNT. Terry>tSHAUN ELLIS THE DEFENSIVE END ONTHIS SIDE, STARTS TO PS, MAKES A BEAUTIFUL SPIN MOVE, COMES BACK OUT OF IT AND GETS IN ON THE QUARTERBACK. YOU TALK ABOUT 2nd 5- EFFORT OUT OF YOUR DEFENSIVE LINEMEN, YOU REAL WANT THEM TO PURSUE THE QUARTERBAC L THE WAY AROUND THAT FIELD. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT SHAUN ELLIS DID THAT TIME. Sean>>DAVID WASIELEWSKI PUNTING FOR FLORIDA. THE FLORA PUNTING SITUATION UP IN THE AIR — HE’S BEEN ALTERNATING WITH JOSH CORN. WASIELEWSKI WITH NOT A VERY GOOD PUNT AND IT IS DOWNED AT T 34 YARDLINE. 34-YARD PUNT — THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WASIELEWSKI WAS AVERAGING COMING INTO THE GAME ON 3 NTS AGAINST THE CITADEL AND NORTHEAST UISIANA. WE’LL LIKELY SEE JOSH HORN THE NEXT TIME THEY GO TO PUNT. Sean>>NOT A PERFECT START IF YOUARE PHILLIP FULMER AND TENNESSEE T YOU’VE GOT TO LIKE THE WAY IT IS GOING. Terry>>YOUR DEFENSE WAS IN SUCH POOR FIELD POSI$JON EARLY IN THE 1st QUARTER. THEY RESPONDED, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE OFFENSE POPPED A BIG PLAY. Sean>>JAMAL LEWIS GOING NOWHERE — JOHNNY RUTLEDGE WRESTLED HIM TO THE GROUND WITH HELP FROM THE SAFETY ROB GRADY. Terry>>WH YOU RUN — ROB GRADDY. Terry>>>SOMETIMES IT’S GOING TO BE A PLAY LIKE THAT, YOU GAIN A YARD, MAYBE NOTHING, BUT YOU KEEP ATTACKING, YOU KEEP WORKING THEM. THEY MAK,A GOOD PLAY, YOU MAKE A GOOD PLAY, AND THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED WHEN SHAWN BRYSON POPPED THE LINE OF S TENNESSEE IS COMMITTED THISYEAR AGAINST FLORIDA.

WH YOU HAVE TO DO, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE THAT YOURE A REALLY GOOD THROWING TE RIGHT NOW IN YOUR DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE, WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY IS HEY, WE NEED TO GET INTO 3rd AND 5, 3rd AND 4 — WE’VE GOT TO STAY OUT OF THOSE 3rd AND 12S. Se>>WILL YOU EXPECT TEESSEE TO PLAY IT VERY CONSERVATIVELY HERE? Terry>>I THINK THEY TAKE A KNEE AND GO IN AT HALFTIME AND REGROUP AND FIGHT THE 2nd HALF. Sean>>THAT’S WHAT MARTIN DOE (Whistle) Sean>>AN ENTERTAINING 2st HALF.$, IT WASN’T ALWAYS PRETTY — MISTAKES ON BOTH SIDES — BUT AS USUAL, EXCITI AND INTENSE WHEN THESE TWO TEAMS GET TOGETHER. HERE IS MIKE MAYOCK. Mike>>HEY, COACH, THAT 1st HALF, MINUS THREE YARDS — MINUS THREE YARDS RUSHING, THREE TURNOVERS, ALL THE PENALTIES. FRUSTRATED? Coach>>WE GOT THAT ONE AT THE END. THAT’S GOING TO BE A BIG BREAK. Mike>>THE d HALF DO YOU DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY? Coach>>TRY TO HOLD ONTO THE BALL. OUR DEFENSE IS DOING SUPER. Sean>>THANK YOU, MIKE. THE END OF THE t HALF. FLORIDA 10, TENNESSEE 10. STAY TUNED AS TIM BRANDO, CRAIG JAMES AND LOU HOLTZ WILL BRING YOU UP TO DATE ON THE SCORES AND HIGHLIGHTS ON THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL 4zOTLL — NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. FLORIDA IS GOING TO SET BACK AND THEY’RE GOING TO SEE THE FREE’FETY MOVE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SCREEN. WIDE EN DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE $, — PASS INTERFERENCE CALL. YOU CANNOT COVER ONE ON ONE A FLORIDA RECEIVER. TENNESSEE, THE PLAY BEFORE IS ONE, 7 MEN IN THE BOX AND JAMAL LEWIS UP THE MIDDLE. 7 MEN IN THE BOX AGAIN, THEY’RE GOTO AUDIBLE. WHEN YOU GO 7 ON 7 UP THE, THEY’RE IN TROUBLE — TOUCHDOWN. BIG PLAY. WHAT I CAN’T UNDERSTAND IS FROM FLIDA’SSTANDPOINT, AND I LOVE BOB STOOPS, WHY WOULD BOBBY STOOPS NOT GO 8 MEN IN THE BOX THE ENTIRE TIME AND $, BEG TEE MARTIN TO THROW THE FOOTBALL? IF HE DOES HE’S THROWING IT TO AN AR NOT TO A RECEIVER. Tim>>THIS IS GOING TO BE A GAME WON COACHES INHE 2nd HALF. A LOT OF COACHING GOING ON TODAY PARTICULARLY WHEN CORBY JONES IS PLAYING WELL. Tim>>BOB TOLEDO LOSES FREDDY MITCHELL. THAT MEANS HE HAS TO RELY ON MCNALLY. Terry>>BRN POLI-DIXON.÷le 107,653. THE MOST IN STADIUM HISTORY. THEY WATCHED THE TWO TEAMS PLAY TO A 10-10 STANDOFF IN THE 1st HALF. JEFF HALL’S KICK OFF INTO THE END ZONE. A MOMENT’S HESITATION. HERE GOES JOHN CAPEL. JOHN CAPEL — THE FRESHMAN, TAKES IT ALL THE WAY. THEY’RE GOING TO MARK HIM OUT OF BOUNDS, I BELIEVE, BACK NEAR MIDFIELD. THEY’RE GOING TO SPOT HIM OUT AT T 45ARDLINE. OFFICIALLY, A 45-YARD RETURN. FOR CAPEL. THE FRESHMAN FROM BROOKSVILLE, FLORIDA WHO WON THE NATIONAL PREP SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIPS IN BOTH THE 100 AND 200 METERS IN 1997 — ONE OF THE FASTEST YOUNG MEN IN THE COUNTRY. HE SHOWED US THERE. Terry>>WHEN YOU HEAR THE FLORIDA GATORS TALKING ABOUT HOW THE FALL CAMP HAS GONE SO FAR THEY TALK ABOUT JOHN CAPEL HAS BEEN EXPLOSIVE ON THEIR OWN PRACTICE FIELD AND HE SHOWS HERE THAT TREMENDOUS SPEED. HIS RIGHT FOOT JUST HIT THE CHALK LINE. IT’S AN EXCELLENT CALL BY THE OFFICIAL. OUTSTANDING FIELD POSITI FOR FLORIDA. Sean>>JESSE PALMER KES THE FIRST SNAP OF THE 2nd HALF AND THROWS INCOMPLETE. Sean>>DOUG JOHNSON COMEIN. COACH,>WELL, I THINK THE WHOLE STORY THERE IS THE FLORIDA DEFENSE IS EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS ADVERTISED. THEY GAVE UP ONE BIG PLAY. THEY WERE TREMENDOUS IN THE 1st HALF. Sean>>THE TENNESSEE DEFENSE HOLDING ITS OWN — A SACK. THE THIRD SACK FOR TENNESSEE. GARWIN WALKER CREDITED WITH THIS ONE, THE JUNIOR FROM ROUND O., SOUTH CAROLINA. Terry>>PLAYS OVER THE CENTER, WATCH HIM, HE SLIPS THE BLOCK BY THE LEFT GUARD, NUMBER 51, RYAN KALICH, GETS UP AND MAKES THE GREAT PLAY. BENCH PRESSING OUT THERE — HE’S THE BIGGEST BENCH PRESSE ON TENNESSEE’S TEAM. Sean>>HE STARTED HIS CAREER AT N.C. STATE, TRANSFERRED TO TENNESSEE. JESSE PALMER THE QUARTERBACK ON 3rd AND A MILE. AND HE IS UP-ENDED BY ERIC WESTMORELAND AND HE THREW INCOMPLETE. LOOKED FOR A MOMENT LIKE HE MIGHT GET CALLED FOR HAVING HIS KNEE DOWN — THAT WAS VERY CLOSE. RAYNOCH THOMPSON IN FIRSTTHEN WESTMORELAND WITH THE LA$á TRIP AND FLORIDA’S OFFENSE WENT IN REVERSE ON THIS FIRST POSSESSION OF THE 2nd HALF. Terry>>TENNESSEE IS BRINGING THE HEAT WITH RAYNOCH THOMPSON, NUMBER 46THE LINEBACKER. HE COMES ON THE BLL”Z. NOBODY PICKS HIM UP. PALMER DOES A GOOD JOB AVOIDING THE SACK BUT THEN HE’S HAULED IN BY THE SWARMING TENNESSEE DEFENSE UP FRONT. Sean>>DAVID WASIELEWSKI IS THE PUNTER. AS THEY CONTINUE TO ALTERNATE. JEREMAINE COPELAND THE DEEPEST VOLUNTEER. EXCELLENT PUNT. BY THE FRESHMAN FROM TAMPA. COPELAND STARTED AT THE 19. (Whistle) Sean>>HE’S OUT TO THE 33 YARDLINE. TACKLED BY ALEX BROWN — A 50-YARD PUNT. A 15-YARD RETURN. SEAN MCDOUGH WITH TERRY DONAHU,. WE HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING TONIGHT’S PHILLIP FULMER, WHAT DOES HE SAY AT HALFTIME? GIVEN THEY HAVE THE LEAD, THEY HAVE MOMENTUM ON THEIR SIDE. Terry>>FLORIDA, AS BADLY AS THEY PLAYED IN TERMS OF TURNOVERS, THEY CAME BACK, TENNESSEE, AND PLAYED A GREAT SERI OF DEFENSE RIGHT THERE, SO PHILLIP FULMER, HIS TEAM IS EMOTIONALLY AT THE RIGHT PEAK. THEY’RE READY TO PLAY FOR “60 MINUTES.” Sean>>THE QUICK HITTER — JAMAL LEWIS TS FREE. TEAKO BROWN TACKLED HI, A GAIN OF 18 FOR LEWIS WHO HAD ROUGH TIME FINDING ROOM IN THE 1st HALF. HE RUSHED FOR JUST 14 YARDS. Terry>>EVERY TAILBACK, WHEN HE RUNS AN ISOLATION PLAY HE WANTS A GOOD BLOCKING FULLBACK, NUMBER 24, SHAWN BRYSON THROWS THE BLOCK THAT ALLOWS JAMAL ]MWIS THE DAYLIGHT THAT HE GETS THERE. NUMBER 24. THERE IS THE MAN. WATCH HIM. HE OUGHT TO BE A TRENCH WARRIOR. HE KICKS IT OUT, OPENS THAT HOLE. Sean>>AND LEWIS IS FREE AGAIN! SO THEY’VE FOUND SOMETHING ON THESE FIRST TWO RUNS BY LEWIS IN THE 2nd HALF FOLLOWING BRYSON, JAMAL LEWIS DOWN TO THE 36 YARDLINE, A PICKUP OF 13 MORE. Terry>>AGAI, JAMAL LEWIS FOLLOWING HIS FULLBACK, SHAWN BRYSON. HE WILL KICK THE END OUT, TH,GUARD WILL PULL, A PRESSURE POINT ON THE FLORIDA DEFENSE THAT TENNESSEE IS TRYING TO APPLY. Sean>>GOOD BLOCK BY MERCEDES HAMILTON, NUMBER 75. HE’S BEEN WAITING 365 DAYS FOR THIS GAME. DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE WAY HE PLAYED LAST YEAR. LEWIS INTO THE MIDDLE. MCGREW MADE THE TACKLE FOR THE FLORIDA DEFENSE. Terry>>ONE OF THE REAL PROBLEMS YOU SEE FOR TENNESSEE IS 15 YARDS PASSING. THEY’VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO GET A FEW MORE PASSING YARDS. THEY’VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO GET BALANCE IN THE OFFENSE PARTICULARLY IN 3rd DOWN SITUATIONS. Sean>>TROUBLE WITH T HANDOFF AS SHAWN BRYSON COLLIDED WITH TEE MARTIN. JOHNNY RUTLEDGE GETS CREDIT FOR THE TACKLE AT THE 35 OF FLORIDA. IT WILL BE 3rd DOWN AND ALMOST 9 TO GO FOR A 1st DOWN. Terry>>SEAN, YOU HAVE TO WONDER, AFTER FLORIDA GETS THE OPENING KICKOFF OF THE 2nd HALF, THEY GET A GREAT RETURN, OUTSTANDING FIELD POSITION, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THAT TENNESSEE DEFENSE JUST ROARS ITS HEAD, THEY GET THE BALL BACK FOR THE OFFENSE AND NO>3rd DOWN AND 9. THREE WIDE RECEIVERS. THEY RUN THE OPTION. AND HE IS COLLARED — MARTIN WHIPPED DOWN TO THE GROUND BY TIM BEAUCHAMP. Terry>>TENNESSEE TRIED TO RUN A DOWN THE LINE SPEED OPTIONdAND TIM BOW — TIM BEAUCHAMP, NUMBER 93 HELD HIS GROUND AND TOOK THE QUARTERBACK JUST AHE WAS COACHED. Sean>>A COUPLE OF GOOD RUNS BY LEWIS BUT THE DRIVE STALLED IN FLORIDA TERRITORY AND DAVID LEAVERTON WILL PUNT, TRYING TO COACH IT DOWNFIELD. TRAVIS MCGRIFF STANDING AT THE 10 YARDLINE. EACH TEAM HAS HAD THE FOOTBALL ONCE HERE IN THE SUCCESS HALF. (Whistle) Sean>>A TIME OUT CALLED BY FLORIDA. THEY DID NOT HAVE THE RIGHT NUMBER OF N ON THE FIELD. EVE SPURRIER DID THE COUNTING HIMSELF. 10-10 THE SCORE. KNOXVILLE, 10-10 THE SCORE EARLY IN THE 3rd ARTER. DAVID LEAVERTON WILL PUNT. FLORIDA HAD TO BURN A TIME OUT. NO RUSH. LEAVERTON HANGS IT UP. IT TAKES A GOOD BOUNCE FOR THE VOLS AND WILL BE DOWNED NEAR THE 6 YARDLINE. DOWNED BY DWAYNE GOODRICH. WHAT A TURN-AROUND FOR LEAVERTON. IMAGINE THE PROBLEMS $, THE UCLA GAMES LAST YEAR, HAD A COUPLE OF SHANKS, TENNESSEE TOOK A SAFETY WHEN A SNAP WENT BY HIM BECAUSE HE HAD HIS HEAD TURNED TO CALL A TIME OUT AND SAID HE DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO GET ON THE PLANE TO COME HOME FROM LOS ANGELES — DIDN’T FEEL LIKE HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE TEAM. WHEN HEGOT BACK AT 3:30 IN THE MORNING HE CALLED HIS PARENTS IN MIDLAND, TEXAS, THEY HAD TO TALK HIM OUT OF LEAVING SCHOOL, HERE HE IS THRIVING THIS SEASON. Sean>>JESSE PALMER HANDS OFF TO TERRY JACKSON AND AL WILSON WHO HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING MADE THE TACKLE. TOMORROW JOIN JIM NANTZ, MARCUS ALLEN, BRENT JONES AND GEORGE SEIFERT. Sean>>TONIGHT, IT’S NASDAQ COLLEGE FOOTBALL — AND ANOTHER DANDY IN THIS RIVALRY BETWEEFLORIDA AND TENNESSEE. JOHNSOAT QUARTERBACK. BURIED IS JACKSON — BACK INSIDE THE 2 BY RAYNOCH THOMPSON. Terry>>THE TENNESSEE LINEBACKING CORPS TONIGHT HAS CERTAINLY COME UP BIG. AL WILSON, NUMBER 27, IN THE MIDDLE, YNOCH THOMPSON IS GOING TO COME FROM THE RIGHHAND SIDE OF THE SCREEN TO JUST KNIFE IN THERE AND UNDERMINE THAT PENETRATION, IS WHAT TAKES AWAY ANY KIND OF A SWEEP PLAY. Sean>>FLORIDA OFFENSE BRUTAL HERE IN THE SECOND HALF. THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO RUSH THE BALL ALL GHT. JACKSON. PERHAPS A HALF YARD, AND THAT’S IT. THIS TENNESSEE DEFENSE IS FIRED UP. AL WILSON AND 4ED WHITE, EACH OF WHOM HAS PLAYED BRILLIANTLY TONIGHT, COMBINING ON A STOP THEN PHILLIP FULMER SHOULD GET THE BALL BACK IN TERRIFIC FIELD POSITION. Terry>>THIS IS WHERE YOU HAVE TO MAKE A TOUGH DECISION ON DEFENSE. DO YOU TRY TO GO AFTER THE PUNTER AND BLOCK L” OR PUT THE RETURN TEAM IN AND GET GOOD FIELD POSITION. THOSE ARE THE DECISIONS YOU GO THROUGH D GUT-GRIND AS THE GAME GOES ON. Sean>>HOW MUCH OF A FACTOR IS IT THAT FLORA HAS A SHAKY PUNTING SITUATION? Terry>>I THINK SOMETIMES YOU WANT TO SHAKE UP THE PUNTER PARTICULARLY IF YOU DON’T THINK HE’S A GREAT PUNTER, AND FLORIDA HAS HAD TROUBLE. Sean>>WASIELEWSKI A CENT KICK OUT OF THE END ZONE. JEREMAINE COPELAND. HAD TO DODGE A TEAMMATE. HE WAS SWARMED UNDER AT THE 43 YARDLINE. A LATE FLAG THROWN AF$áR THE IY TACK2. 45-YARD PUNT BY WASIELEWSK AND A 3-YARD RETURN. THAT FLAG WAS THROWN VERY LATE. AT THE 40 YARDLINE. Sean>>TWO INJURED PLAYERS — TONY GEORGE AND ALEX BROWN. Terry>>SEAN, FLORIDA DID A TERRIFIC JOB PUNTING THAT BALL AND COVERING. THERE IS A SWARM OF GATORS COMING IN HERE TO MAKE THIS TACKLE. AND YOU CAN SEE NUMBER 1, TONY GEORGE, RIGHT THERE — HE GETS HIT — Sean>>HELMET TO HELMET WITH BROWN AND THEY’RE BOTH DOWN. THAT’S THE KIND OF COLLISION THAT REALLY IS FRIGHTENING. THE GOOD NEWS IS, THERE IS MOVEMENT TH,E ON THE PART OF GEORGE. STRIKE TWO ! – [ Grunting ] UH-OH, HERE COMES THE SKIPPER.
LOOKS LIKE TRE’S GONNA BE
SOME FIREWORKS NOW. SIDELINES. A PERSONAL FOUL PENALTY AGAINST FLORIDA ON THE RUNBACK SO TENNESSEE BEGINS ON THE 29 AND TEE MARTIN GOES DOWN BELTED BY MIKE PETERSON AT THE 30. LOSS OF ONE AS THEY TRIED TO RUN THE OPTION TO THE SHORT SIDE OF THE FIELD.$, Terry>>WHEN YOU RUN THAT OPTION YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE MR. PETERSON IS. THE OPTION GAME HAS NOT BEEN AN EFFECTIVE WEAPON AT ALL FOR TENNESSEE TONIGHT. TRYING TO RUN THE DOWN THE LINE OPTION AND THE SPEED OF THE FLORIDA DEFENSE EATS IT UP. Sean>>XCELLENT FIELD POSITION TO START THIS POSSESSION FOR TENNESSEE. AT THE 4bORIDA 29. TEE MARTIN. LOFTS IT UP. D. LOOKING FOR PEERLESS PRICE — TOUCHDOWN! ♪(Band playing)♪ Sean>>FLAG DOWN IN THE END ZONE, I BELIEVE FOR ANOTHER PERSONAL FOUL AFTER THE PLAY. Terry>>PEERLESS PRICE RAN A LITTLE STOP AND GO.$, HE ACTED LIKE HE WAS GOING TO GO INSIDE THEN WENT DEEP, AND TEE MARTIN DID A GREAT JOB OF HANGING IN THE POCKET, WITH KEARSE RIGHT IN HIS FACE. UNBELIEVABLE PRESSURE ON HIM BUT HE GOT E BALL OFF. Sean>>IT WILL BE A LONG TRY FOR THE EXTRA POINT FOR PHILLIP FULMER, UNSPORTSMAN-LIK AGAINST TENNESSEE. Sean>>ABOUT THE EQUIVALENT OF A 35 YARD FIELD GOAL FOR HALL. Terry>>EXCESSIVE CELEBRATION ON PEERLESS PRICE’S PART AND I GUARANTEE YOU PHILLIP FULMER AND S STAFF ARE UPSET ABOUT THAT. THIS IS NOAN EASY KICK. Sean>>JEFF HALL OUT OF SCOTT’S HOLD. HE COVERS UP FOR THE PENALTY. PEERLESS PRICE, THE SENIOR FROM DAYTON, OHIO ON THE RECEIVING END OF THE TOUCHDOWN PASS. 29 YARDS TO MARTIN. Sean>>JEFF HALL READY TO KICK OFF AFTER HIS EXTRA POINT, PUT TENNESSEE BACK UP BY 7. A HIGHPOP-UP KICK AND A FAIR CATCH CALLED FOR, AND MADE BY, ROD ROBERTS, ONE OF THE UP MEN, A RESERVE FULLBACK, DECE FIELD POSITION WITH WHICH TO START FOR SPURRIER’S OFFENSE AT THE 31 YARDLINE — TENNESSEE SCORES QUICKLY AFTER THE PU RETURN AND THE PENALTY MOVED THEM DEEP INTO FLORIDA TERRITORY. PRICE THE PASS RECEPTION FROM MARTIN. IN THIS HALF, FLORIDA HAS MINUS 18 YARDS OF OFFENSE. WEE MIDWAY THROUGH THE 3rd QUARTER. JESSE PALM TAKES THE 1st AP. Sean>>QUICPASS TO TRAVIS MCGRIFF — TACKLED QUICKLY BY STEVE JOHNSON. A GAIN OUT TO THE 35 YARDLINE. A GAIN OF 4. Terry>>SEAN, AS THE GAME CONTINUES TO UNFOLD I THINK YOU CAN SEE THE CONFIDENCE OF THE TENNESSEE PLAYERS CONTINUING TO RISE. WHEN YOU HAVEN’T BEATEN A TEAM IN FIVE ARS, LIKE WE SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME YOU THINK YOU CAN BEAT THEM BUT YOU’RE NOT POSITIVE IN YOUR SOUL. RIGHT NOW, $áNNESSEE IS FEELING PRETTY GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES. THEY’RE FAR FROM BEING THE WINNER BUT THEY’RE FEELING GOOD ABOUT IT. Sean>>MORE OFTEN THAN THEY HAVE FALLEN WAY BEHIND EARLY AND HAVE THE FEELING OF HERE WE GO AGAIN; THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED TONIGHT. MOVEMENT ALONG THE LINE. TENNESSEE PLAYERS INDICATING IT’S AGAINST FLORIDA. AND IT IS ILLEGAL PROCEDURE. AGAINST THE GATORS. LET’S CHECK IN ON THE SIDELINE WITH MIKE MAYOCK. Mike>>SEAN, THE GOOD NEWS IS ON THE INJURY FRONT FOR FLORIDA, TONYEORGE WAS ONLY KICKED IN THE SHIN; HE WILL BE BACK. ALEX BROWN SUFFERED A MILD CONCUSSION. SHE >>HE SHOULD BE BA TOO. THE BAD NEWS IS I HAVEN’T SEEN THIS MUCH FRUSTRATION ON A FLORIDA SIDELINE INA LONG TIME. DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR BOBBY STOOPS WAS ALL OVER DOCK POLLARD AFTER THE LONG TOUCHDOWN PASS AND I SENSE A HIGH DEGREE OF FRUSTRATION. Sean>>YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THAT, IT SEEMS, ON THE FACES OF THE GATORS. 2nd DOWN. LONG YARDAGE. (Whistle) Sean>>PALMER THROWS. INCOMPLETE. THROUGH THE HANDS OF DARRELL JACKSON. ANOTHER FLAG DOWN. IT MIGHT BE FOR DELAY OF GAME. THERE IS BOB STOOPS. Referee>>PRIOR TO THE SNAP, DELAY OF GAME ON THE OFFENSE. 5 YARDS. Terry>>SEAN, WHEN YOU PLAY TWO BALL GAS LIKE STEVE SPURRIER AND FLORIDA DID, AND YOU ARE NOT FINELY TUNED, YOU HAVE PENALTIES, YOU HAVE TURNOVERS AND ALL THAT, IT’S NOT EASY ALL OF A SUDDEN TO JUST TURN IT ON LIKE A LIGHT AND SAY HEY, GUYS WEEK WE’RE GOING TO CONCENTRATE, AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT STEVE’S FRUSTRATION IS. HE’S WON A LOT OF BIG GAMES, NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, THE WHOLE DEAL, HE KNOWS THEY CAN PLAY BETTER THAN THEY’RE PLAYING AND HE’S FRUSTRATED ABOUT IT. Se>>10 PENALTIES AGAINST FLORIDA. INSIDE HANDOFF TO TERRY JACKSON. GOT MOST OF THAT YARDAGE ON HIS OWN. GOT BACK TO THE 30. THAT WILL STILL PRESENT THEM WITH 3rd DOWN AND 11. JEFF COLEMAN AND FRED WHITE COMBINED TO MAKE THE STOP ON TERRY JACKSON, WHO IN ADDITION TO HIS FOOTBALL EXPLOITS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA IS ALSO THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE STUDENT BODY. HE WAS ELECTED LAST SPRI TO SERVE IN THIS ACADEMIC YEAR. Terry Donahue>>HERE IS THE CHALLENGE FOR THE TENNESSEE DEFENSE. JOHN CHAVIS, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, 3rd DOWN, WE’VE GOT TO PLAY 3rd DOWN, THAT’S ALL HE SAID TO US YESTERDAY. Sean>>JESSE PALMER OUT OF THE SHOTGUN. UNDER PRESSURE. LOFTS IT UP FOR MCGRIFF AND HE HAS IT — TRAVIS MCGRIFF DOWN THE SIDELINE — TOUCHDOWN! ♪(Band playing)♪ Terry>>TRAVIS MCGRIFF IS ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED FOOTBALL PLAYERS I’VE SEEN IN A dzNG TIME. HE PLAYED GREAT FOR THE GATORS LAST YEAR; HE’S PLAYING WONDERFUL AGAIN THIS SEASON. HE GETS OFF BUMP COVERAGE, RUNS THE FADE ROUTE. THE BALL IS WELL DELIVERED. HE USES A LITTLE HAND SHIVER RIGHT ABOUT BUT GOT AWAY WITH IT HE WAS SO SMOOTH. DEON GRANT, THE SAFETY, COULDN’T GET OVER TO GIVE3, ODRICH, ANY HELP, BECAUSE HE CRAMPED. HE ONTHE PLAY. Sean>>JEFF CHANDLER KIC THE EXTRA POINT. THE GAME IS TIED AGAIN.

AERIAL SHOTS TONIGH$PROVIDED BY THE BUD ONE AIRSHIP WHICH REMINDS YOU THAT FRESH BEER TASTES BETTER. DOB Terry Donahue>>PHILLIP FULMER, HEAD COACH OF TENNESSEE TALKED ABOUT MENTAL TOUGHNESS IN THIS GAME. WE HAVEN’T BEAT FLORIDA IN 5 YEARS. WE HAVE TO BE MENTALLY TOUGH FOR 60 MINUTES. HE SAID I LIKE THE TOUGESS AND THEY’RE ENOUGH TO HANG IN THERE. THEY ARE GOING TO BE TESTED AFTER THE HUGE PLAY THAT FLORIDA MADE. Sean>>SO TYPICAL OF THE FLIDA OFFENSE. THEY CAN LOOK BAD FOR A WHILE. WITH ONE QUICK STRIKE THEY HAVE 7 POINTS ON THE BOARD. NEARLY 5 MINUTES REMAINING IN THE 3rd QUTER. JAMAL LEWIS TO THE SS. TRIED TO CUT IT BACK — AND DID.

THAT WAS ANOTHER BIG PROBLEM LAST YEAR. WE TALKED ABOUT THE FRT 7 OF THE FLORIDA DEFENSE DOMINATING THE TENNESSEE OFFENSIVE LINE BUT THE RECEIVERS FROM TENNESSEE COULDN’T GET OFF THE RHINE OFF THE LINE AGAINST E CORNERS. Terry>>THEY COULDN’T. TONY GEORGE MOVED FROM SAFETY TO CORNER, DOCK , POLLARD, ANOTHER NEW $, CORNER THERE, THEY’RE NOT QUITE THE SAME AS THEY WERE A YEAR AGO. Sean>>MARTIN 4 OF 11 PASSING FOR 44. THEY GIVE IT TO JAMAL LEWIS AND HE RUMBLES OUT TO THE 35 YARDLINE TACKLED AGAIN BY RODD GRADDY, LEWIS STARTING TO FIND ROOM HERE IN THE 3rd QUARTER. Terry>>WE SHOWED EARLIER ON THE VIRTUAL REALITY PLAY, SHAWN BRYSON LEADING JAMAL LEWIS. THIS IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE SHOWED. WATCH 24. HE WILL FIND THE LINEBACKER.

Sean>>THERE IS ALL THE IMPROVEMENT IN HIS NUMBERS AS A RESULT OF ALL THE WORK HE DID THIS SUMMER. IT INCREASED HIS BENCH PRESS SIGNIFICANTLY, ACTUALLY BACKED OFF — THEY DIDN’T WANT HIM TO GET ANY STRONG NERT WEIGHT ROOM IN TERCH — STRONGER IN THE WEIGHT ROOM INTERMS OF THE BENCPRESS — THEY WERE AFRAID HE WOULD HURT HIMSELF. John>>Sean>>JAMAL LEWIS SPENT MOST OF THE TIME HERE. HE SPENT TIME IN ATLANTA WITH NFL PLAYERS. THEY WOULD GET P EVERYTHING MORNING AT 7 A.M. AND GET A RIGOROUS WORKOUT. Sean>>2nDOWN AND 1.

Sean>>MARTIN’S PASS BATTED UP IN THE AIR AND FALLS INCOMPLETE. JEVON KEARSE ALWAYS A FACTOR IN THE BACKFIELD, IT SEEMS, HADS HAD LONG ARMS UP AND TTED DOWN THAT PASS AND THE VOLS WILL PUNT. Terry>>JEVON KEARSE HAS MADE HIS PRESENCE FELT ON A COUPLE OF BIG PLAYS TONIGHT BUT NOT AS I ANTICIPATED; I THOUGHT HE MIGHT DOMINATE THE GAME COMING INTO THE GAME; BUT TENNESSEE HAS DONE A PRETTY GOOD JOB KEEPING HIM UNDER CONTROL. HE’S MADE SOME GOOD PLAYS BUT THEY’VE DONE A GOOD JOB WITHHIM. Sean>>THE JUNIOR FROM FORT MEYERS OUT OF NORTH FORT MEYERS HIGH SCHOOL.D, JEVON KEARSE NAMED TO SEVERAL PRESEASON ALL AMERICAN SQUADS AND THE SPORTING NEWS PICKED HIM AS NATIONAL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR.

I’VE MET HIM A COUPLE OF TIMES PERSONAL AND I LIKE HIS COMPETITIVE SPIRIT, THE WAY HE PLAYS. I ENJOY HIM. Sean>>TIME OUT. Sean>>THIS HAS BEEN A DISASTER IN TERMS OF TIME OUT MANAGEMENT FOR FLORIDA. BURNED ALL THREE IN THE 1st HALF. GARRITY >>GATORS AT THEIR OWN 1st AND 20. JOHNSON FIELDED IT AND HIT TRAVIS TAYLOR WHO GOT POPPED OUT AT THE 25 YARDLINE BY AL WILSON. THAT’S WHY JOHNSON NEEDED HIS BASEBALL SKILLS — HE’S PLAYED BASEBALL IN THE MPA BAY ORGANIZATION A COUPLE OF SUMMERS AS A 3RD BASEMAN AND HE SCOOPED UP THAT SNAP LIKE THE PLAYER AT THE HOT CORNER. Dana>>ZACH ZEDALIS, THE SHOTGUN SNAP AND THE SHORT SNAP ARE DIFFICULT. YOU HA TO REFINE THOSE KINDS OF SKILLS. IT’S GOING TO TAKE HIM A WHILE. THAT’S NOT AN EASY POSITION TO PLAY. Sean>>ZEDALIS’S SNAP TO JESSE PALMER AND AGAIN, AL WILSON MADE THE TACKLE. ON TERRY JACKSON. AL WILSON MIGHT HAVE MADE SOME ALL-AMERICAN TEAMS TONIGHT WITH HIS PERFORMANCE. Terry>>I TELL YOU, AL WILSON HAS STRIPPED THE BALL SEVERAL TIMES TONIGHT. HE’S BEEN A BIG FACTOR IN THE GAME. HERE HE IS TAKING TERRY JACKSON, THE BALL AWAY FROM HIM, SAVING A TOUCHDOWN THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN FOR FLORIDA, AND THIS PLAY WHERE HE COMES FROM BEHIND ON THE PASS COMPLETION, STRIPS THAT BALL AND THEN FINALLY, ON THE BLITZ, GETS THE QUARTERBACK AND KNOCKS IT LOOSE.

UNCLE DON GRIFFIN MANY WILL REMEMBER PLAYED FOR SAN FRANCISCO AND CLEVELAND IN THE NFL. Terry>>IT’S INTERESTING TO WATCH AN ATHLETE LIKE THAT WHO HAS SUFFERED A REAL SETBACK AND HE’S THRUST ONTO THE SCENE AND YOUNT TO SEE HIM DO WELL. HE’S CERTAINLY PLAYING WELL $, TONIGHT. Sean>>PALMER HAS THE BETTER NUMBERS. JOHNSON IS THE QUARTERBACK ON THIS PLAY.

THEY’RE ABOUT SCORE AND THEY TURN IT OVER. Sean>>THEY GIVE IT TO LEWIS AND HE PICKS UP THE 1st DOWN. THE TENNESSEE OFFENSIVE LINE CERTAINLY HOLDING ITS OWN TONIGHT IN SHARP CONTRAST TO A YEAR AGO. IT’S 1st AND 10OLS AT THEIR OWN 46 YARDLINE. KEETH KELSEY WHO BACKS UP JOHNNY RUTLEDGE AT MIDDLE LIBACKER MADE THE TACKLE FOR THE GATORS.

YOU TRY TO SLOW DOWN PASS RUSHEWITH SCREENS AND DRAWS. Sean>>DARWIN WALKER AIDED ON HIS WAY TO THE SIDELINE. DAVID WASIELEWSKI THE PUNTER. SHORT KICK. IT TAKES A GOOD BOUNCE. (Whistle) Sean>>PARKER WADEEP FOR THAT ONE FROM WASIELEWSKI. A 38-YARD PUNT. Sean McDonough>>THE DEFENSES HAVE BEEN DOMINATING THIS GAME. THE TENNESSEE DEFENSE ON THE SIDELINE AFTER FORCING FLORIDA TO THREE PLAYS AND A PUNT. NOW ‘S TENNESSEE ON OFFENSE FROM ITS OWN 35. THE THROW BACK BY MARTIN. TO PEERLESS PRICE. (Whistle). Sean>>HE DANCES OUT ACROSS THE 40 TO THE 43 YARDLINE — TWO YARDS SHORT OF A 1st DOWN. THE POPULATION ÷2 THE CITY ÷2 KNOXVILLE IS JUST UNDER 170,000. Sean>>WHERE ARE THE REST OF THEM? Donna>>HEW TH Terr>THEY’VE COME FROM EVERY HAMLET AND VILLAGE. MOST OF THEM ARE HERE FOR THE TEAM IN ORANGE. Sean>>FULLBACK BRYSON GETS VERY LITTLE — HE RAN INTO THE ARMS OF TIM BEAUCHAMP AND MIKE PETERSON. Terry>>AT FLORIDA DEFENSE IS AWFULLY TOUGH INSIDE. EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, YOU WILL PIERCE THEM, LIKE TEESSEE DID IN THE 1st HALF. YOU’VE GOT TO BE PATIENT, AND TENNESSEE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB TONIGHT OF BEING PATIENT. THEY’VE JUST KIND OF POUNDED IN THERE, POUNDED IN THEREd EY KNOW IT’S ROUGH SLEDDING BUT THEY’RE GOING WITH THEIR GAME PLAN. Sean>>ONE 3rd DOWN CONVERTED. BRYSON AND LEWIS IN THE “I” — COPELAND AND PRICE THE RECEIVERS. LEWIS. FOLLOWING THE OCK OF BRYSON — 1st DOWN OUT TO THE 48. RORT CROMARTIE SENT LEWIS INTO THE AIR BUT NOT BEFORE JAMAL MOVED THE CHAINS FOR TENNESE. Terry>>THAT PLAY REMINISCENT OF THE GEORGIA GAME A YEAR AGO WHEN WE SAW GEORGIA BEAT FLORIDA BY RUNNING THE BALL AND THEY RAN IT TO THE WEAK SIDE ON THE SWEEP PLAY, AND HERE IT IS, THEY’RE GOING TO RUN TO THE OPEN END WEAK SIDE, THEY PITCH THE BALL TO JAMAS LEWIS AND HE DOES A GREAT JOB KNOWING WHERE THE 1st DOWN MARKER IS, GOING UP AND OVER FOR THE 1st DOWN. Sean>>80 YARDS RUSHING ON 18 CARRIES FOR LEWIS. AN INJURED VOLUNTEER OFFENSIVE LINEMAN, SPENCER RILEY, THE CENTER, JUNIOR FROM NEW MARKET, TENNESSEE. WHO WAS A STARTER LAST YEAR AT LEFT GUARD. AGAINST FLORIDA. Sean>>NO REASON FOR ANY OF THEM TO BE EMBARRASSED TONIGHT; THEY’RE I CH IMPROVED UNIT. Terry>>THEY AYED THEIR HEARTS OUT GHT. I ALWAYS WORRIED WHEN I COACHED ABOUT A CENTER GOING DOWN. I WORRIED ABOUT THE NEXT CENTER GETTING THE BALL TO THE QUARTERBACK. I KNOW IT SOUNDS EASY AND ELEMENTARY BUT IT’S A HARD CHANGE EXCHANGE TO MAKE. Sean>>THESE TEAMS HAVE A LOT OF OFFENSIVE LINEMEN WHO CAN MOVE AROUND AND PLAYDIFFERENT POSITIONS. DIRON ROBERTSON. NO PROBLEM ON THE SNAP. REGGIE MCGREW MADE THE TACKLE ON TEE MARTIN. Terry>>I THINK THAT TENNESSEE WOULD BE BETTER ADVISED TO GIVE THE BALL TO THE TAILBACK THAN TO RUN THAT OPTION PLAY. THEY’VE TRIED IT TWO OR THREE TIMES TONIGHT; IT’S JUST NOT GOING TO WORK AGAINST THE PURSUIT AND SPEED OF THE FLORIDA DEFENSE. THERE IS NOTHING INSIDE — NO FAKE INSIDE TO HOLD THAT DEFENSEdAND THEY JUST RUN DOWN THE LINE OFSCRIMMAGE BECAUSE THEY’RE SO ATHLETIC AND FAST. Sean>> MINUTES LEFT. TENNESSEE AT THE 50. Sean>>QUICK DROP AND THE CATCH MADE — A GOOD CATCH BY COPELAND IN TRAFFIC. THE BALL OUT AWAY FROM HIS BODY. JEREMAINCOPEND DOWN NEAR A 1st DOWN. ABOUT A YARD SHORT, IT APPEARS — ROBERT CROMARTIE, THE TRUE FRESHMAN IN AT CORNERBACK FOR TONY GEORGE. Terry>>THAT BALL WENT WHERE WE USED TO SAY ONLY EAGLES DARE TO FLY, THROWN INTO A TIGHT CROWD BY TEE MARTIN. IT WAS A GREAT THROW AND CATCH BUT IT WAS A CROWD IN THERE. Sean>>WHAT A PLACE FOR CROMARTIE TO PLAY, WAS A HIGH SCHOOL TEAMMATE AND IS STILL A GOOD FRIEND OF JAMAL LEWIS. MARTIN – 3rd AND SHORT, DID NOT GET THERE, THEY RAN THE OPTION AGAIN, LEWINEVER TOUCHES THE BALL AND YOU HAVE TO QUESTI THAT, AND NOW IT WILL BE 4th DOWN AND SHORT. Terry>>THIS IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT OPTION, THIS TIME. Terry>>THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE AN INSIDE FAKE BUT SURE ENOUGH, E FLORIDA DEFENSE PLAYS IT WELL. THEY FAKE TO THE FULLBACK, JUST A TOKEN FAKE AND THE WHOLE DEFENSE IS ABLE TO SWARM TO THE QUARTERBACK. Se>>AFTER THE PRIMARY HIT YOU SAW ONE OF THOSE BUTKUS LIST HITTERS. PHILLIP FULMER THINKING ABOUT GOING FOR THIS. AS HE PONDERS THE DECISION WE’LL STEP ASIDE. Sean>>COH DONAHUE, YOU FACED THIS KIND OF DESION MANY TIMES. 4th DOWN, A YARD AND A HALF. WHAT DO YOU DO? Terry>>YOU DO AT YOUR GUT TELLS YOU TO DO AND PHILLIP FULMER’S GUT TELLS HIM TO GO FOR IT OR DRAW FLORA OFFSIDES POSSIBLY WITH A FAKE COUNT. Sean>>WHAT YOU WOULDDO? Terry>>I WOULD PUNT THIS BALL AGAINST A DEFENSE LIKE THIS. AND I THINK PHILLIP FULMER IS TOO. Sean>>FLORIDA IS TOO EXPERIENCED, TOO WELL COACHED TO GO FOR THAT. Terry>>SEAN, THE OTHER THING YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER, THEY JUST WENT FOR IT ON 3rd AND 2 AND DIDN’T MAKE 6 INCHES SO YOU CAN RUN A DIFFERENT PLAY AND MAYBE YOU WILL MAKE IT, BUT DON’T PUT YOUR DEFENSE IN THAT TOUGH A POSITION. THEY’RE PLAYING THEIR HEARTS OUT TONIGHT. PUNT THE BALL. SEE IF YOU CAN GET SOMETHING GOOD TO HAPPEN AGAIN FOR YOU. Sean>>THAT’S RIGHT. DEFENSE HAS PLAYED TERRIFIC. THEY HAD THE ONE BREAKDOWN IN THE 70-YARD PASS TO MCGRIFF IN THIS HALF. DAVID LEAVERTON DROPPED THE LAST SNAP. BUT HE’S HAD A BIG NIGHT. TRAVIS MCGRIFF BACK DEEP. Terry>>IF FLORIDA COMES BACK AND WINS THE GAME, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY, HEY, YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE FOR IT, BUT REALLY, THE CALL BEFORE, YOU WISHED THE TAILBACK HAD GOTTEN THE BALL. THAT’S PROBABLY THE CRITICAL CALL. Sean>>LEAVERTON IN A BIT OF A RUSH HANGS A PUNT. WHAT A NIGHT HE’S HAVING AND YOU HAVE TO CHEER FOR HIM REGARDLESS WHO HE’S CHEERING FOR BECAUSE HE ENDURED EMBARRASSMENT AND 4USTRATION LAST YEAR. HE’S COME BACK TERRIFICALLY WELL. BOUNCED BACK TO THE 15 YARDLI. EVER WONDER WHY EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND? ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY HAS THE ANSWER. THEY’VE CAED IT A DARN NEAR PERFECT SITCOM AND A LAUGH A MINUTE FUNNY. FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF WHEN THE NEW SEASON OF RAYMOND BEGINS MONDAY AT 8 CALI Sean THE CLOCK IS RUNNING HERE. I’M NOT SURE WHY. THE OFFICIALS ARE CONFERRING ALONTHE NEAR SIDELINE. THE CLOCK IS TICKING. DOWN TO 7:37 REMAINING. PERHAPS THEY DIDN’T RUN THE CLOCK ON THE LAST PLAY. SO THEY’RE TRYING TO RESET IT. ARE THE OFFICIALS CONFERRING ALONG THE NEAR SIDELINE. APPARENTLY, THEY CANNOT STOP THE CLOCK; THAT’S THE PROBLEM THEY’RE HAVING NOW. Terry>>(Laughing) THEY NEED SOMEBODY TGET OUT OF BOUNDS. Sean>>A RUNAWAY CLOCK! Terry>>IT’S SUPPOSED TO STOP, RIGHT! Sean>>ONE OF THE FEW MOMENTS FOR ALL IN THE STADIUM, TONIGHT, TO TAKE A COLLECTIVE BREATH. AS THEY CHECK OUT THE CLOCK PROBLEMS, LET’S GET AN UPDATE ON INJURIES FROM MIKE MAYOCK. Mike>>SEAN, IT’S A WAR OF ATTRITION TONIGHT. TWO WEEKS AGO, AGAINST SYRACUSE, THEY HAD 14 GUYS GO DOWN WITH CRAMPS. EIT HAD TO BHYDRATED WITH AN I.V. — DARWIN WALKER IS IN THE LOCKER ROOM WITH AN I.V., DEON GRANT JUST GOT BACK FROM THE LOCKER ROOM WITH AN I.V.AND MICKEY ALLEN IS BEING STRETCHED OUT BECAUSE OF CRAMPS. AS THE NIGHT WEARS ON, TENNESSEE IS GOING TO HAVE TO BATTLE LIKE THEY DID AGAINST SYRACUSE AND GET THROUGH THE CRAMPS. Sean>>THEY HAD PROBLEMS IN THE WARM CARRIER DOME. INTERESTING ASPECT OF THAT AFTER THE GAME IN SYRACUSE ACH FULMER TOOK AYERS OFF CRTINE, THOUGHT THAT MIGHT BE A FACTOR TO THE CRAMPING PARTICULARLY IN LEAN BODY MASS PLAYERS. Terry>>YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHEN YOU CRTWO WEEKS IN A ROW, IT WILL MAKE PHILLIP FULMER QUESTION THEIR CONGRESS. — THEIR CONDITIONING. YOU HAVE TOYDRATE YOUR PLAYERS IN A DIFFERENT WAY OR GET THEM IN A DIFFERENT CONDITIONING BASE. Sean>>THEY’VE FIXED THE CLOCK. RESET TO 8:26. JESSE PALMER, PASS DEFLECTED STILL CAUGHT BY MCGRIFF. RUN OUT OF BOUNDS BY GERALD GRIFFIN. Terry>>MCGRIFF IS HARD TO COVER. HE’S A SLIPPERY RECEIVER. HE WOS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF ZONES VERY NICELY. HE CAN BEAT YOU MAN TO MAN. STEVE SPURRIER TOLD US YESTERDAY THAT HE RUNS ABOUT A 4.5. HE’S FASTER THAN YOU THINK HE IS. Sean>>162 YARDS INCLUDING THE 70-YARD TOUCHDOWN. TIE GAME. NEARING 8 MINUTES REMAINING IN REGULATION TIME. JOHNSON GOING FOR THE HOME RUN BALL JUST OVER THE HEAD OF MCGRIFF AND THE COVERAGE FROM STEVE JOHNSON. Sean>>MCGRIFF STILL RUNS WELL DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE CAME BACK FROM A SERIOUS KNEE JURY BACK IN NOVEMBER ’96 — HE WAS THEIR COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR FOR HIS PERFORMANCE LAST YEAR, REBOUNDING FROM THAT KNEE PROBLEM. $árry>I DON’T THINK FLORIDA FANS HAVE ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT WITH TRAVIS MCGRIFF AND TRAVIS TAYLOR — THOSE TWO GUYS CAN LIGHT IT . THEY’RE GOOD. Sean>>TAYLOR IS IN NOW WITH NAFIS KARIM IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN. ON THE DELAY. TERRY JACKSON. (Whistle) Sean>>ON 2nd AND 10. SQUIRTS OUT TO THE 36 YARDLINE. A GAIN OF 3. SHAUN ELLIS AND RAYNOCH THOMPSON COMBINED TO BRING DOWN TERRY JACKSON. DOUG JOHNSON BACK IN. HE’S 11 OF 20 FOR 160, PALMER 15 OF 20. THEY ARE QUITE SIMILAR. IF YOU’RE NOT PLAYING CLOSE ATTENTION YOU MIGHT NOT NOTICE THEY WERE RUNNING QUARTERBACKS IN AND OUT, ABOUT THE SAME SIZE, SAME THROWING STYLE. Sean>>DOUG JOHNSON. FOUR WIDE RECEIVERS AND AN EMPTY BACKFIELD ON 3rd DOWN. BLITZ. JOHNSON GOT IT ÷2F. MCGRIFF HAS THE CATCH AND A 1st DOWN AND HE’S FIGHTING TO GET AWAY FROM STEVE JOHNSON. HE DID MANAGE TO GAIN A FEW MORE, OUT TO THE 50 YARDLINE BEFORE JOHNSON FINALLY MADE THE STOP. 14 MORE ON E RECEPTION FOR MCGRIFF, HAVING A CAREER NIGHT. Terry>>TENNESSEE HAS AN UNBLOCKED RUSHER, HE COMES FROM RIGHT THERE, THE MAN WHO IS GOING TO APPLY THE PRESSURE. THE QUARTERBACK HANGS IN THERE AND MCGRIFF ACTS LIKE HE’S GOING DEEP, STOPS, SHAKES THE DEFENDER OFF AND IT’S A BIG COMPLETION FOR FLORIDA. Sean>>THOMPSON WITH THE HIT ON JOHNSON. Sean>>A LO$OF TIME. DEEP DOWN THE FIELD — MAN OPEN — INTERCEPTED — THE LL UNDERTHROWN AND DEON GRANT PICKED IT OFF! Sean>>LOOKED LIKE A ONE-NDED CATCH OVER THE MIDDLE — PALMER HAD A MAN OPEN BEHIND THE DEFENSE, BUT TH BALL WAS SHORT AND GRANT GOT IT. ♪(Band playing)♪ Terry>>YOU WANT TO SEE A GUY PLAY FREE SAFETY IN THE MIDDLE TO PERFECTION, WATCH NUMBER 7, DEON GRANT, AND THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT THAT IS DEON GRANT WAS ONE OF THOSE PLAYERS TH MIKE MAYOCK REFERRED TO WHO HAD TO LEAVE THE GAME BECAUSE OF CRAMPS. FLORIDA HAS A WIDE-OPEN RECEIVER DOWN THE MIDDLE. AND DEON GRANT WITH A ONE-HANDED INTERCEPTION — UNBELIEVABLE PLAY! Sean>>NAFIS KARIM THE INTENDED RECEIVER, HE WAS OPEN BUT GRANT A TREMENDOUSPLAY, THE SOPHOMORE FROM AUGUSTA, GEORGIA, HIS FIRST CAREER INTERCEPTION AND NOW LEWIS ON THE 1st DOWN FROM THE 47 GETS OU$TO MIDFIELD. THERE WAS A 27-YARD INTERCEPTION RETURN BY GRANT AND SPURRIER THOUGHT HE SHOULD HAVE HAD A TOUCHDOWN. THE BALL WAS WELL THROWN. HE WOULD HAVE HAD THE TOUCHDOWN, I BELIEVE. Terry>>HE WOULD HAVE. THERE IS NO QUESTION. STEVE KNOWS WHEN YOU TURN THE BALL OVER 5 TIMES AGAINST ANOTHER TEAM, IT’S HARD TO BEAT THEM. THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT. IT GETS TOUGHER AND TOUGHER. an>>THE FIRST INTERCEPTION BUT THE FIFTH TURNOVER. THEY’VE LOST 4 FUMBLES. THAT IS OUR CBS SPORTSLINE STAT OF THE GAME. LEWIS. CHOPPY STEPS — MIKE PETERSON TOOK HIM DOWN AFTER A GAIN OF 2. HERE COMES ANOTHER 3rd DOWN. WHICH HAS BEEN A TROUBLE SPOT FOR THE TENNESSEE OFFENSE TONIGHT. 2 OF 12. THERE IS GRANT. HE TOOK OVER THIS YEAR FROM COREY GAINES. WHEN HE USED UP HIS ELIGIBILITY. GRANT WAS A BACK-UP LAST YEAR. JOHN CHAVIS, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR TOLD US HOW SMART IS.$, Terry>>THEY LIKE HIM, HE’S GOT GREAT RANGE AND HE DISPLAYED IT ON THAT $, PARTICULAR PLAY. Sean>>3rd DOWN. AND THE PASS IS — INCOMPLETE! LOOKING FOR PEERLESS PRICE. IT BOUNCED IN THERE. MARTIN’S THROW JUST A LITTLE BIT SHORT. AND IT WILL BE 4th DOWN AND Terry>>THAT’S A OD CALL BY THE OFFICIALS. PEERLESS PRICE HAS GOT $z SOMEHOW GET HIS HANDS UNDERNEATH THAT BALL. HE’S GOT TO PUT THEM ON THE GROUND AND KEEP THAT BALL FROM HITTING THE GROUND. IT’S A GOOD ROUTE BY PEERLESS PRICE. HE MAKES A GOOD ATTEMPT AT THE BALL. IT SKIPS. IT’S A LITTLE SHORT. IT’S NOT A VERY GOOD THROW. Sean>>A VERY COSTLY INACCURATE THROW AS NOW THEY HAVE TO PUNT. LEAVERTON HANGS IT U JUST A LITTLE BIT TOO LONG. A 47-YARD PUNT. THE NET IS 27 AS IT COMES OUT TO THE 20. 5:01 REMAINING. FLORIDA WILL BEGIN AT ITS 20. THEY’VE MADE MISTAKE AFTER MISTAKE TONIGHT — TENNESSEE HAS MADE A FEW AS WELL. Terry>>YOU GET THE FEELING, SEAN, THAT FLORIDA JUST KEEPS KNOCKING ON THAT DOOR, KNOCKING ON THAT DOOR, SOONER OR LATER, THEY’RE GOING TO OPEN IT, BUT THIS TENNESSEE VOLUNTEER DEFENSE HAS RISEN TO THE OCCASION TIME AND TIME AGAIN. Sean>>FROM THE 20. THE HANDOFF TO JACKSON. HE SPINS OFF SOME TACKLERS AND MOVES OUT TO THE29 YARDLINE. Sean>>WILL OVERSTRE,” AND FRED WHITE MADE THE STOP ON THE SENIORFROM GAINESVILLE. Sean>>WE’LL SEE TIM COUCH, HEISMAN TROPHY CANDIDATE TAKING ON THESE GATORS IN GAINESVILLE. JACKSON ON 2nd AND SHORT PICKS UP THE 1st DOWN. ACROSS THE IRTED TO THE 31 –ACROSS THE 30 TO THE 31. RON GREEN MADE THE TACKLE. Terry>>SEAN, THOSE FANS THAT PICK UP THE UCLA/MIAMI GAME WILL SEE CABE MCNOWN, ALONG WITH DONOVAN MCNABB FROM SYRACUSE, HAVING GREAT STARTS TO THEIR SEASONS. Sean>>MIAMI TIED AT 20 RIGHT NOW IN THE 4th QUARTER WITH VIRGINIA TECH. AT THE ORANGE BOWL. JESSE PALMER THE QUARTERBACK. HE THROWS. CAUGHT BY DARRELL JACKSON. OUT OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE 37 YARDLINE. $m A GAIN OF 6. STEVE JOHNSON MADE ANOTHER TACKLE. HE HAS TO BE TIRED, BECAUSE WE’RE TIRED JUST LOOKING AT HIM. Terry>>(Laughing) YOU GET THE FEELING WATCHING THIS GAME THAT IF FLORIDA HADN’T SELF DESTRUCTED YOU GET THE IMPRESSION THEY COULD MOVE THE BALL, BUT YOU ALSO SEE THAT DEFENSE RALLYING TIME AND TIME AGAIN — TENNSEE’S PROBLEMS HAVE EXISTED OFFENSIVELY; THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO MOVE AGAINST A GREAT DEFENSE. IT’S HARD TO MOVE THE BALL AGAINST THAT FLORIDA DEFENSE. Sean>>UNDER 4 MINUTES REMAINING, A TIE GAME IN REGULATION TIME. A BLITZ. THE PASS CAUGHT. JOHNSON HIT DARRELL JACKSOAGAIN. AND HE’S ACROSS MIDFIELD TO THE TENNESSEE 49.$, DARWIN WALKER, ONE OF THOSE TAKING AN I.V. MOMENTS AGO, BACK ON THE FID AND RUNNING DOWNFIELD FROM THE DEFENSIVE LINE TO MAKE THE TACKLE ON JACKSON. Terry>>PALMER AND JOHNSON HAVE TAKEN , HIT AFTER HIT. THERE HAVE B,áN A LOT OF UNBLOCKED RUSHERS THAT HAVE GOTTEN TO HIM BUT BOTH PLAYERS HAVE SHOWN COURAGE IN THE POCKET. THEY’VE HUNG IN THERE. NO WONDER STEVE SPURRIER LIKES THEM BOTH — BECAUSE THEY’RE BOTH TOUGH GUYS. Sean>>YOU SENSE ANXIETY IN THE CROWD AT NEYLAND STADIUM AS THE GATORS MOVE ACROSS MIDFIELD WITH UNDER 3 AND A HALF MINUTES REINING AND A TIE GAME. PALMER SWARMED UNDER! BACK AT THE 41 YARDLINE! FRED WHITE ON A SAFETY BLITZ. JUST AS YOU WERE SAYING IT, UNBLOCKED PEOPLE COMING FOR TENNESSEE. Terry>>TENNESSEE HAS CONTINUED TO BRING THE HEAT. NUMBER 2, WHITE, COMES ON THE BLITZ. HE WILL COME FROM THE OUTSIDE. HE JUST RUNS — INSIDE, I’M SORRY, FROM THE INSIDE, HE COMES ON THE BLITZ AND HE’S BLOCKED AND MAKES THE HIT. HERE HE COMES, UNDERNEATH. I’LL TELL YOU, THE QUARTERBACK, PALMER IS LUCKY TO HANG ONTO THAT BALL. A LOT OF QUARTERBACKS GET STRIPPED IN THAT KIND OF SITUATION. Sean>>LOSS OF 9. THEY SPOT THE BALL AT THE 43. 2nAND 19. THE $!h SACK OF THE, NIT FOR U.T. JOHNSON OUT TO MIDFIELD. DARRELL JACKSON. PUTS THE LL AHEAD. AND WILL GET THE SPOT AT THE 47 YARDLINE. MICKEY ANGLE MADE E TACKLE. HERE COMES ANOTHER BIG 3rd DOWN. IN THISAME. THEY NEED TO GET JUST INSIDE THE 40 YARDLINE FOR A 1st DOWN. ONE TIME OUT LEFT FOR FLORIDA. Terry>>IF YOU’RE JOHN CHAVIS, DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR OF TENNESSEE, DO YOU BRING THE HEAT OR DEFEND? I THINK HE BRINGS THE HEAT. THEY LIKE TO PLAY PRESSURE DEFENSE. THAT’S IN THEIR HEART AND SOUL. Sean>>THEY BRING EXTRA PEOPLE ANDIT WORKS — PALMER SACKED BY CHRIS RAMSEUR, A BACK-UP LINEBACKER! ♪(Band playing)♪ Terry Donahue>>CHRIS RAMSEUR COMES FROM THE INSIDE — WATCH HIM — HE’S UNBLOCKED. NOBODY PICKED HIM UP. THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF UNBL÷KED RUSHERS TONIGHT, SEAN, THAT FLORIDA HASN’T PICKED UP — EITHER THE QUARTERBACK HAS TO ACCOUNT FOR THEM WITH A HOT READ OR THE QUARTERBACK HAS TO GET RID OF THE BALL BEFORE HE GETS THERE. IN THAT CASE, THEY COULDN’T GET RID OF IT. Sean>>WASIELEWSKI PUNTS. IT HITS A FLORIDA PLAYERAND IS DOWNED AT THE 22 YARDLINE. PERHAPS THE 23. 33-YARD PUNT FOR WASIELEWSKI. TENNESSEE WITH A MINUTE NINE REMAIN TWO TIME OUTS BEGINS AT ITS OWN 23 YARDLINE. THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE TONIGHT IS SIDE THE BUD ONE AIRSHIP. AERIAL AMBASSADOR TO THE KING OF BEERS. THEY PE TO PLACE THE FROSTY BUD IN CELEBRATION HERE IN THE LAST MINUTE NINE SECONDS. Sean>>CAN THEY D THIS 5-GAME LOSING STREAK AGAINST FLORIDA? THE HANDOFF TO LEWIS — A HELMET CAME FREE BUT LEWIS HELD ONTO THE FOOTBALL. JEVON LEWIS HE ON TO THE FOOTBA AND LOST HIS HELMET AS WELL IF THAT’S THE PLAY AND THEY’RE GOING AT THIS PACE, YOU WONDER IF TENNESSEE WOULD BE CONTENT JUST TO GET TO THE OVERTIME. Terry>>I THINK THEY PROBABLY ARE, AND YOU KNOW, SEAN, I THINK IN THE OVERTIME PERIOD, FLORIDA HAS THE ADVANTAGE. I THINK THEY HAVE A BETTER OFFENSE TO SCORE INSIDE THE 25 YARDLINE THAN TENNESSEE DOES — AT LEAST TONIGHT BECAUSE OF THE ATHLETES THEY HAVE AND THE THROWING GAME. Sean>>SOME OF THE FANS BOOI. IT SEEMS OBVIOUS, NOW, BACKED UP $z THE 20, TENNESSEE DOESN’T WANT THE FATAL MISTAKE. Terry>>I DON’T BLAME THEM. I THINK YOU’VE GOT TO BE REALLY CAREFUL DOWN HERE. TEE MARTIN HAS NOT HAD A BIG NIGHT THROWING THE BALL. Sean>>NO. Terry>>LET’S FACE IT. YOU’RE BETTER OFF — IF YOU’RE GOING TO PLAY IN OVERTIME, YOUR TEAM HAS FOUGHT THEIR HARD — THEIR HEART OUT, THIS IS TYPICAL PHILLIP FULMER FOOTBALL, I THINK, HE’S RAISED ON FUNDAMENTALS, CONSERVATIVE OFFENSE, CONSERVATIVE DEFENSE — IN TERMS OF FIELD POSITI, NOT IN TERMS OF PLAY CALLING, IN TERMS OF FIELD POSITION. HE DOESN’T HAVE GOOD FIELD POSITION YET. Sean>>MANY OF THE FANS BOOING. BUT IF HE HAD THROWNAN INTERCEPTION OR IF THERE HAD BEEN A FUMB THAT LED TO A FLORIDA SCORE TO WIN THE GAME, THEY WOULD WANT TO LYNCH PHILLIP FULMER. Terry>>THEY WOULDBE BOOING LOUDER THAN THEY ARE NOW. THERE ARE A FEW BOOS. THEY WOULD REALLY BE BOOING. Sean>>DEEP IN THEIR OWN TERRITORY, JUST OVER A MINUTE WHEN THEY GOT THE BALL, INEXPERIENCED QUARTERBACK HAS NOT BEEN ACCURATE IN TWO GAMES, I THINK HE DID THE RIGHT THING. AND IT WASN’T LOUD BOOING. Sean McDonough>>I KN YOU THINK IT’S AN ADVANTAGE TO BE ON DEFENSE FIRST BECAUSE THEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO WHEN YOU GET THE BALL — IF THE OTHER TEAM GETS A FIELD GOAL YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO GET A FIELD GO, IF THE OTHER TEAM SCORES A TOUCHDOWN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO SCORE A TOUCHDOWN. Terry>>YOU KNOW WHAT CARDS YOU HAVE TO PLAY. STEVE SPURRIER MIGHT BE THE ONLY GUY IN THE COUNTRY, IF HE WINS THE TOSS HE MIGHT TAKE THE CALL. Sean>>PUT THE PRESSURE ON THE OTTEAM BY SCORING. MOST CHOOSE TO BE ON DEFENSE FIRST. EN THEY KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO WHEN THEY GET E BALL. EACH TEAM GUARANTEED OF GETTING THE BALL ONCE IN EACH OVERTIME SESSION. IT’S NOT SUDDEN DEATH WHERE THE FIRST TEAM THAT SCORES WINS. IF ONE TEAM SHOULD WANT SCORE — SHOULD NOT SCORE THEN THE >QHER TEAM SCORES, IF ONE TEAM SCORES 3, THE OTHER TEAM SCORES 7, THE TEAM THAT SCORES 7 WINS. Terry>>TENNESSEE FRUSTRATED FOR 5 YEARS, THEY GO ALL 60 MINUTES AND NOW THEY’RE GOING INTOOVERTIME. Sean>>IF THEY’RE GOING TO END THE STREAK, THEY WILL WIN IN DRAMATIC FASHION. IF FLORIDA EXTENDS IT THE SAME WILL BE TRUE FOR THEIR SIXTH STRAIGHT WIN. Terry>>IT DOESN’T GET ANY BIGGER THAN THIS FOR THESE TWO TEAMS. Sean>>THE REFEREE EXPLAINING THE OPTIONS TO THE TENNESSEE PLAYERS. Referee>>THIS GOAL DOWN HERE. WE’LL MAKE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT. FLORIDA CHOSE TO GO ON DEFENSE. TENNESSEE CHOSE TO PLAY AT THIS END. Sean>>FLORIDA DID WIN THE TOSS AND ELECTED TO GO ON DEFENSE. Sean McDonough>>IN OVERTIME, TENNESSEE WITH THE BALL FIRST BEGINNING AT THE FLORIDA 25. RULES ARE THE SAME. YOU CAN’T PICK UP 1st DOWNS BY PICKING UP 10 YARDS. Sean>>MARTIN DROPS BACK. LOOKING TOWARDS THE END ZONE. THROWS TOWARD THE END — TOO LONG, IN DOUBLE COVERAGE, LOOKING FOR CEDRIC WILSON. Terry>>SEAN, I CAN’T EXPLAIN THE EMOTION — I PROBABLY CAN’T ARTICULATE IT PROPERLY WITH PHILLIP FULMER. THINK ABOUT — FIVE YEARS OF FRUSTRATION. HE’S HEARD THE CRITICS. HE’S THE WINNINGEST ACTIVE COACH IN DIVISION I, HAS THE BEST WINNING POSSESSION OF GUYS THAT HAVE COACHED 5 YEARS OR LONGER AND HE’S HEARD THE CRITICS TALK ABOUT THE FACT TH HE CAN’T BEAT FLORIDA. THEY’VE FOUGHT THEIR HEARTS OUT AND HERE THEY ARE IN OVERTIME — HIS GUTS– HIS GUT’S GOT TO BE KILLING HIM. Sean>>THAT FEELING UNDOUBTEDLY EXPERIENCED BY HIS VETERAN PLAYERS WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH THE LOSSES TO FLORIDA IN THE PAST. Sean>>MARTIN AGAIN. AGAIN GOING FOR THE END ZONE IT IS BATTEDAWAY BY DOCK POLLARD. PEERLESS PRICE THE INTENDED RECEIVER. HOW ABOUT THIS STRATEGY — COMING OUT THROWING TWICE IN THE END ZONE. Terry>>DOCK POLLARD WAS BEAT BUT DID A GOOD JOB OF RECOVERING. I’M SURPRISED TENNESSEE REW TWO STRAIGHT PASSES. I THOUGHT THEY WOULD HAND OFF TO LEWIS, THE TAILBACK, AND MAYBE RUN A PLAY-ACTION PASS, JEREMAINE COPELAND, DOWN THE CENTERLOOKING FOR THE BALL. THEY COULDN’T GET IT TO HIM. Sean>>ONE ADNTAGE TENNESSEE WOULD SEEM TO HAVE, A MORE PROVEN KICKER IN JEFF HALL, ONE OF THE BEST IN THE NATION. FLORIDA’S FIELD GOAL KICKING SITUATION UNCERTAIN. MARTIN SCRAMBLES. FLAG DOWN. LOOKED LIKE THERE WAS HOLDING IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT OFFENSIVE LINE. WENT DOWN SHORT OF A 1st DOWN AT THE 17 YARDLINE. THERE SEEMED TO BE A HOLD. Terry>>SEAN, THIS IS GOING TO BE A TOUGH CALL AGAINST TENNESSEE. THE ARE CENTER, SPENCER RILEY, HE HAD A TAKEDOWN. Referee>>OFFENSE, PENALTY IS 10 YARDS FROM THE SPOT OF THE FOUL. REPEAT 3rDOWN. Terry>>THIS PUTS THEM IN — WATCH NUMBER 68, THE CENTER, JEVON KEARSE ON THE RUSH. HE TOOK HIM DOWN. IT’S A GOOD CALL BY THE OFFICIAL. Sean>>NO QUESTION. HAD HIM BY THE FACE MASK, IT APPEARS, HANDS RIGHT UP UNDER THE FACE. Terry>>NOW U NEED AT LEAST A 10-YARD GAIN SO YOU CAN GET BACK INTO FIELD GOAL RANGE SO JEFF HALL HAS A CHANCE TO PUT AT LEAST 3 POINTS ON THE BOARD. Sean>>DISASTER IN OVERTIME, AND FULMER’S CRITICS MIGHT QUESTION THE TWO PLAY CALLS TO START THIS OVERTIM COMING OUT THROWING INTO THE END ZONE. Terry>>CERTAINLY, THE FIRST PLAY OF THE OVERTIME, YOU GO — 1st AND 10 YOU CAN THROW A PLAY-ACTION PASS, YOU FIGURETHEY’VE GOT 8 GUYS UP THERE PLAYING THE RUN, BUT ON 2nd DO, I THINK THERE, MAYBE YOU COME BACK WITH YOUR TAILBACK WHO IS HAVING PRETTY GOOD NIGHT, HE’S GOT ABOUT 80, 90 YARDS RUSHING. Sean>>HE’S YOUR BEST PLER. Terry>>TRY TO GET TO A 3rd AND 5 AND DON’T TRY TO PUT E GAME INTO TEE MARTIN. TEE MARTIN HASN’T GOTTEN YOU INTO OVERTIME. Sean>>THEY’RE NOT IN FIELD GOAL RANGE AND IF THEY GO SCORELESS IN THIS POSSESSION, THEN ALL FLORIDA WOULD HAVE TO DO IS KICK A FIELD GOAL WHEN IT GOT THE BALL TO WIN. WE REMIND YOU THAT FLORIDA HAS BEEN ALTERNATING ITS PLACE KICKERS. THEY’VE CKED J$ONE FIELD GOAL THIS YEAR, AND THAT WAS TONIGHT. ♪(Band playing)♪ Sean>>AFTER THE TIME OUT CALLED BY TENNESSEE, NOW WHAT DO YOU DO? ON 3rd DOWN. AND 23. Terry>>I THINK MAYBE YOU THROW SOMETHING IN THE MIDDLE TO TRY TO GET 10 TO 15 YARDTO GET IN POSITION TO KICK A FIELD GOAL. YOU’VE GOT TO GET SOME POINTS OUT OF HERE. @[email protected] Sean>>MART RUNS — ‘S IN FIELD GOAL RANGE BACK TO THE YALINE. Terry>>GOOD JOB BY TEE MARTIN SAVING THE DAY THERE. THEY DID RUN INSIDE ROUTES. THEY TRIED TO PUT SOME RECEIVERS IN THE MIDDLE SO TEE MARTIN COULD THROW IN THERE; THEY WERE COVERED WELL. MARTIN DID A GREAT JOB PULLING THE BALL DOWN AND AT LEAST GAVE JEFF HALL A MAKEABLE KICK. Sean>>JEFF HALL ONE OF THE BEST IN THE NATION, SENIOR, CAPTAIN OF THIS TENNESSEE TE. KICKED THE GAME-WINNING FIELD GOAL AT SYRACUSE TWO WEEKS AGO. THIS WOULD BE A 41-YARD TRY. Sean>>THAT KICK IS RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE! ♪(Band playing)♪ Sean McDonough>>WHAT A BIG 14-YARD SCRAMBLE BY TEE MARTIN. HE MOVED THEM FROM THE 38 TO THE 24 AND AT LEAST TENNESSEE GOT POINTS. NO POINTS WOULD HAVE BEEN DISASTROUS. IN ALL LIKELIHOOD. NOW FLORIDA KNOWS IT NEEDS A FIELD GOAL TO KEEP THE GAME ALIVE, A TOUCHDOWN AND FLORIDA WINS. Terry>>SEAN, I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY KICKS IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEESSEE WILL BE BIGGER THAN THIS ONE IF TENNESSEE WINS THE GAME. THIS MAY BE THE BIGGEST KICK THEY’VE EVER HAD. AT LEAST FOR PHILLIP FULMER. Sean>>TREMENDOUS NOISE NOW. DOUG JOHNSON THE QUARTERBACK. Sean>>UNDER PRESSURE HE DUMPS IT OFF. CAUGHT. GAIN OF 4. Sean>>TERRY JACKSON. ON THE RECEIVING EN ERIC WESTMORELAND. MADE THE TACKLE. Terry>>SEAN, IN WATCHING STEVE SPURRIER’S TEAMS PLAY THE LAST TWO AND A HALF YEARS, THEY’RE GOOD IN THIS AREA OF THE FIELD. THEY REALLY ATTACK IN. IT’S GOINTO TAKE EVERYTHING TENNESSEE’S DEFENSE HAS TO KEEP THEM OUT OF THAT END ZONE FOR A TOUCHDOWN, BECAUSE THEY WORK EVERY INCH OF TH PLAYING FIELD. Sean>>JESSE PALMER WITH JACKSON THE LONE BACK. THEY HAND IT OFF. TO TRAVIS TAYLOR. AND HE IS OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE 15. IF HE REACHED THE 15, IT’S A 1st DOWN. RAYNOCH THOMPSON KNOCKED HIM OUT OF BOUNDS. Sean>>1st DOWN, FLORIDA. A NEW SET OF DOWNS. 3 TO TIE AND FORCE A SE A TOUCHDOWN WINS IT FOR THE GATORS. YOU KNOW SPURRIER WITH A SHAKY PLACE-KICKING SITUATION DOESN’T WANT IT TO COME DOWN TO A FIELD GOAL TRY. DOUG JOHNSON. Terry>>THEY LIKE THE FADE ROUTE DOWN HERE, SEAN, THEY LIKE TO RUN POST CORNER Sean>>INCOMPLETE — TRAVIS TAYLOR THE RECEIVER, STEVE JOHNSON THE COVERAGE. Terry>>THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT TRAVIS TAYLOR RAN. HE RAN A POST CORNER ROUTE. HE’S THE INSIDE RECEIVER. HE ACTS LIKE HE’S GOING INSIDE THEN JUST BREAKS IT OUT, RUNS TO THE CORNER AND THE QUARTERBACK LAYS THE BALL OUT THERE. HE ALMOST MAKES THE RECEPTION. Sean>>THEY’RE ALLOWING THE DEFENSIVE BACKS SOME CONTACT, SOME HAND CHECKING DOWNFIELD. THAT’S BEEN CONSISTENT. THESE OFFICIALS HAVE DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB. A LOT OF FLAGS. Terry>>YOU’VE GOT TRAVIS MCGRIFF AND TRAVIS TAYLOR ON THE SAME SIDE. Sean>>2nd AND 10. A BLITZ UP THE MIDDLE. THE PASS INCOMPLETE. AL WILSON HAVING A MONSTER NIGHT FOR TENNESSEE. PUT THE HIT ON PALMER. Terry>> WILSON COMES RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE AGAIN HE’S UNBLOCKED. NUMBER 27. HE JUST STEPS UPINTO THE GAP, NOBODY PICKS HIM UP AND HE’S SO QUICK THAT HE JUST GETS THERE. STEVE SPURRIER TRYING TO GET TIME OUT TO CHANGE THE PLAY; CAN’T GET IT DONE. Sean>>THEY DIDN’T SEE HIM, AND HE HAS ASKED FOR A TIME OUT AGAIN TO TALK ABOUT THIS BIG 3rd DOWN PLAY. Sean>>DOUG JOHNSON IS THE QUARTERBACK ON 3rd AND 10. 4 WIDE RECEERS SPREAD THE FIELD. JOHNSON TOWARD THE GO LINE — INCOMPLETE — HE THREW SHORT OF AVIS TAYLOR. NOW, THE QUESTION IS — A., WILL IT BE A FIELD – GOAL TRY? IF SO, WHICH FIELD GOAL KICKER WILL IT BE? THE SITUATION IS THAT UNCERTAIN FOR FLORID Sean>>STEVE SPURRIER’S REACTION AS THE BALL FELL INCOMPLETE. IT’S GOING TO BCOLLINS COOPER.
