The Florida Gators watched in horror as QB Feleipe Franks fumbled the ball on his own one-yard line in a tight 20-14 game against Georgia in the third quarter.
The Bulldogs recovered, which all but ensured a touchdown on the ensuing possession. The Dawgs even caught a break when a penalty gave them a fresh set of downs after they couldn’t get it across the goal line in three tries.
Then, as you can see below, the Gator defense again stepped up, stopping two quarterback sneaks and a handoff later, the Bulldogs had to settle for a field goal:

That’s the sort of series that sparks a team to turn things around, and the Gators were definitely fired up.
They still trail, but with the defense playing like that, Florida may find its way back into the game soon.
