The Tennessee Vols‘ 38-33 win against the Florida Gators on Saturday was an all-timer.

Tennessee’s win featured numerous game-changing moments that will be shown on Vols highlight clips for years to come.

It wasn’t always pretty, but Tennessee made the plays when it counted.

After re-watching the game late Saturday night/early Sunday morning, I picked out what I believe were the top seven biggest moments of the night for the Vols.

7. Jabari Small TD in the third quarter

The Vols changed the game in the final minutes of the first half and the first minutes of the second half.

With Tennessee leading 17-14, it looked like Hendon Hooker had put the Vols up with a touchdown run. But the score was called back due to an offensive penalty, putting Tennessee near the 16-yard line in a goal-to-go situation.

The Vols didn’t waste the opportunity. Despite the tough field position, Tennessee scored on this pass from Hooker to running back Jabari Small, giving the Vols some breathing room.

6. Jaylen Wright’s TD run in the fourth quarter

This score didn’t put the game away like I thought it did at the time — Florida never quit fighting — but it was still a massively important moment in the game.

It also gave us one of the best visuals of the day. Wright’s Gator Chomp in the end zone after scoring is a signature moment for a Tennessee program that’s been dying for a signature moment for the last five seasons.

5. Anthony Richardson’s fumble

It felt like Tennessee couldn’t pull away from Florida in this game. Every time the Vols scored, the Gators went right back down the field and put pressure on UT’s defense.

Gators quarterback Anthony Richardson played his best game of the season. But on this play — he said after the game that he got a little “greedy” — the Vols got a break and avoided watching Florida make it a one-score game.

4. The final play of the game to seal the win

Florida had a chance to ruin the night for Tennessee fans after recovering an onside kick late in the game.

But the Vols escaped with a victory after this Richardson pass was intercepted.

This play happens because Vols defensive coordinator Tim Banks came after Richardson with some pressure, forcing an errant throw. It was a perfect call from the second-year Vols defensive coordinator.

3. Hendon Hooker’s 44-yard run

If Hendon Hooker had a Heisman moment on Saturday, it was this 44-yard rush.

After the game, Gators head coach Billy Napier said he felt Florida had Hooker “dead to rights” a couple of times, but Hooker managed to escape.

I imagine this play was at front of his mind.

Instead of taking a sack for a loss of six or seven yards, Hooker somehow turned this into a huge gain. It was a memorable and important moment for the Tennessee signal caller.

2. Ramel Keyton’s diving catch

This was easily the catch of the year. And it was an important one, too. This catch from Keyton — one of the most impressive I’ve ever seen in college football — led to a score for the Volunteers before halftime.

1. 99-yard drive before halftime

Alright so the Keyton catch was part of this 99-yard drive, but I still think this drive was the most important part of the game for the Vols.

Scoring before the half and going 99 yards to do it was a statement drive by Tennessee.

The Vols had their back against the wall on that drive, too. This third-and-10 throw from Hooker, while evading pressure, to tight end Princeton Fant, was one of the biggest moments of the game.

This drive completely changed the tone of the game. All the momentum was in the Vols’ favor after this impressive drive.

This poll has ended (since 27 days).
