Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs appeared on “SportsCenter at Night with Scott Van Pelt” Monday to discuss the Vols’ shocking Hail-Mary finish that resulted in a 34-31 vs. Georgia over the weekend.

Dobbs, who threw for 230 yards, three touchdowns and an interception (along with one rushing score), took Van Pelt to the very moment he knew his 43-yard last-gasp pass was caught by receiver Jauan Jennings and all that transpired after the fact.

Dobbs described the play heard ’round the college football world.

“So, I caught the snap, made sure both sides were secure and had great protection,” Dobbs said. “I tried to give him as much time to get down there and then as I let it go, I said, ‘Oh, here we go.’ I saw his hands come up, and I thought he caught it but I couldn’t believe it. Then, I saw the sideline erupt, and that’s when it hit me that he finally caught it and we won.”

Dobbs described how long it took to set in that it actually happened.

“We were still on the bus on the way to the airport and people were still in shock that we really just won on a Hail Mary,” said Dobbs. “That’s something on Madden or NCAA, you see it across the nation, but you never think you’re going to be a part of one and it is surreal when it happens.”

No. 8 Tennessee (5-0, 2-0) is preparing for a trip to College Station next, where it will play No. 9 Texas A&M (5-0, 3-0).
