Tennessee celebrating with fans

Quniten Dormady completed 13 of 18 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns against an interception while Jarrett Guarantano added 41 yards and a touchdown in 4-for-12 passes.

After Florida took a 6-3 lead into the locker room, C.J. Tennessee capitalized and tied the game at 20 with 50 seconds left.

Tennessee senior safety Todd Kelly Jr. will not play in Saturday's game at Florida on account of a potential-season-ending knee injury, a source told SEC Country. Tennessee's John Kelly had 141 yards rushing and 96 more yards on six receptions. Kelly celebrated the score with a defiant Gator chomp in the end zone, which rewarded by the officials with an excessive celebration flag. His first touchdown pass of the contest came midway through the final stanza, when he found Brandon Powell from five yards out to give Florida a 20-10 lead.

Tom Brady says he doesn't worry about concussions

Ferguson's six TD passes fuel Memphis' upset of No. 25 UCLA
Memphis responded with a four-play, 81-yard drive, the final 3 yards coming on Ferguson's pass to Phil Mayhue with 9:56 left. Memphis has played three home games because its September 9 game at Central Florida was postponed due to Hurricane Irma.

Ryan school buses among 250 seized for flouting safety norms
The fact Finding committee report suggested that Ryan School was violating several safety guidelines of the CBSE. This should be done for non-teaching staff as well like bus conductors, drivers, peon, and other support staff.

In Florida's opener against MI, they rushed for only 11 yards and had 154 total yards.

In what was a mostly ugly game, it appeared that the Gators and Vols were destined for overtime, or possibly a long field-goal attempt by the Gators. A 52-yard catch-and-run by Kelly set up a 28-yard touchdown pass from Dormady to tight end Ethan Wolf to pull the Vols within 20-17 with 4:43 to play. But Tennessee quickly answered with a touchdown, then got the ball back when a Franks pass got tipped and landed in the arms of Tennessee nickelback Rashaan Gaulden. Medley's boot also ended a streak of three consecutive missed field goals by he and Brent Cimaglia. He would not be touched until he was mauled by his celebrating teammates.
