colton jumper, number 53, on jordan scarlett. >> gary: colton jumper was a starting middle linebacker a year ago until darren kirkland replaced him and you speak to the tennessee people, they believe he's improved his game, they don't think he's kirkland but a good enough player to be an s.e.c. middle linebacker. >> verne: third down, nine. appleby. heck of a catch. >> gary: right now the tennessee secondary is conceding. some of the shorter passes. you can see buchanan right there. he was not going to bite on anything. he was looking for the double move. i think the instructions by the secondary coach, willie martinez, was if they're going to beat us on a double move, you might find yourself on the bench. >> verne: i'm not sure what
7:02 pm
>> verne: i don't know. he's out. he was in the face. >> gary: i don't think he likes the spot. >> verne: of matt leffler. >> gary: down short of the first down, probably about a yard short of >> verne: last time tennessee won was in 2004. james wilhoit had missed an extra point with 3 1/2 to go and then he got a chance for a second opportunity, and he

that was in 2004. third down, one. >> gary: just to tell you how long ago 2004 was. >> verne: yeah. >> gary: nick saban was at l.s.u. and urban meyer was at utah. >> verne: and where were you? >> gary: [laughing] on my way here. >> verne: [laughing] perfect answer. >> verne: this is -- not the most smooth sequence. >> gary: alluv off-season i talked about i believed that tennessee needed to win a tough, hard-fought game against florida to start to turn the ship around.
7:04 pm
this has happened before to tennessee. win a big game against florida ad things could turn. they are now, i think, the team to beat in the east. they've got a tough stretch. a real tough stretch. if they could go 3-1 and the loss be either to a&m or alabama -- look, they've got a two-game lead over florida now if they can finish off this game. >> verne: appleby back. goes across the middle. it's we'll take a look at their schedule. they are at georgia next week, and at texas a&m. and then alabama here. this is the bulk of their season, and if they can get by this one, and they're not that far away, 5:21 to go. they have won nine games in
7:05 pm

7:07 pm
i think their 12th guy did not quite get to the bench. >> verne: the penalty is walked off. third and one. >> verne: callaway, near side. bumped. throws in the right corner. overthrown. intended for goolsby. it's fourth and one. >> gary: do you take a field goal here? it's fourth and short, i think i can go for it. if it was fourth and five i might kick the field goal.
7:08 pm
>> verne: up the middle. they've got the first down, plus as jordan cronsgriet made the tackle. >> verne: as jordan cronkrite made the tackle. >> gary: fans are saying where was that earlier, when they couldn't stay on the field. >> verne: into the right corner. again. beautiful pass. >> gary: coming out of the backfield, cronkrite is matched up, stays with it, gets his hand in there and then does it again. tremendous play by jumper.
7:09 pm
>> verne: 4:22 to go. second and goal. left side. open. touchdown. freddie swain. >> gary: now it's not so noisy. >> gary: you've got to kick the extra point to 10-point football game. one-on-one. gets it into the corner of the end zone. easy throw. checkerboard to throw to the outside and it was an easy pitch-and-catch. it's a football game. >> verne: eddy pineiro to make it a 10-point game, which he does, easily. >> gary: i think right now you've got to kick it down deep if you're florida. get a stop. >> verne: 4:17 to go in regulation. what can we learn about biodiversity from third-graders?
7:10 pm
d it all connects to form a balance to helps us. each species serves a purpose. we need to protect the living things that are left. because the earth is our only home. since 1970, we've lost half of our wildlife. we're working to protect what remains. we all play a part for the greater good. >> verne: your weekend starts here. when the miami dolphins battle the cincinnati bengals. thursday night football on nfl network. a 16-play drive. 86 yards. it did take 4:10 but they've cut it to a 10-point margin. >> gary: it took 4:10 but it also took five previous series.
7:11 pm
remember, now, whether they go for an onside kick they have two time outs left. i still think you can kick this deep or pooch it to the open area. >> verne: they've got jorge powell on who is not -- >> gary: a lot of space to the side that you can pooch that over their head. >> verne: there it is, and tennessee has recovered at the 45. todd kelly jr. >> gary: i wouldn't have done it there. i would the onside kick for later. played very well. he trapped it. perfect. >> verne: most significantly, he fell on it. >> gary: yes. >> verne: jim mcelwain, second-year head coach at florida. had a marvelous year, a year ago. though they did lose their last three. here is tennessee.

7:13 pm
a smart time out. >> verne: only game in the series to go to overtime was 1998, jeff hall put tennessee in front and the extra period was a 41-yard field goal. the gators' collins cooper missed on an attempt to extend the game and tennessee fans rushed the field and took the goalposts with them. >> gary: the reason i wanted to show that is what happened peyton manning. they had four straight years. they had lost all the frustration. the year after key martin wins that game -- the year after tee martin wins that game they go on to win the national championship. could this victory, springing this win against florida move this team with a chance to win the s.e.c. championship, and if you win the s.e.c. championship you have a chance to get in the playoff. >> verne: you bet. 38-28.
7:14 pm
>> verne: don't forget. we'll have the napa play of the game. third and five. florida has one time out remaining. >> gary: >> verne: that's the last time out. >> gary: re 55-yard-plus field goal kicker. still a football game. ?wish that i was on ol' rocky top? ?down in the tennessee hills? ?humming? ?whistling? ?? ?home sweet home to me?
7:15 pm
? >> verne: tonight on cbs begins with "ncis: los angeles." and "ncis: new orleans." followed by the season premiere of "48 hours." tonight, only cbs. >> gary: i would try to draw them offside. florida has no time outs. i would try to draw them offsides first. who cares if you get a five-yard penalty.
7:16 pm
high kick. fair catch called by callaway. what is he doing? >> gary: what are you doing? >> verne: what in the world -- he called a fair catch at the one yard line. >> gary: he's 50% better than he was last time. >> verne: there is a flag. >> gary: if it's on tennessee -- >> referee: there is no foul on the play. the player went between the two players. first down for florida a spot. >> gary: last time he did this, he dropped it. this time he caught it, but that's the second one in the game. >> gary: i've never seen that thashs that tight like that. >> verne: that's worth a very quiet "wow." 38-28. >> gary: why don't they try that
7:17 pm
>> verne: 3:10 to go. gators are out of time outs. we'll see if cronkrite is in the game. incomplete. derek barnett, who has had a very good game. close to 285 pounds and he's got a speed rush to the outside. he's one of the great defensive ends from this conference. myles garrett. jonathan allen. they've got some good ones. >> verne: second and 10. >> verne: cornerbacks up to
7:18 pm
bump-and-run. >> referee: time out tennessee. a 30-second time out. >> verne: most who came at the start of the game have remained. this place is still almost full. stay tuned for "the jeep post game show."

7:20 pm
>> verne: caught. short. six yard line. c'yontai lewis. >> gary: have to go for it. no choice. >> verne: mike abernathy made the tackle. >> gary: good tackle by recoveries in the game against virginia tech. mark shoop with the orange tennessee cap on. >> gary: >> gary: he said he was hired to beat florida. >> verne: four and five. appleby gets loose.
7:21 pm
>> gary: they bring four again. force appleby out. it's batted down, and the streak is over. hat, he ended it for vanderbilt and now he's ended it for tennessee. he said, "i was hired for this job." >> verne: colton jumper. >> gary: the only way tennessee can lose is turning the it over here. they need to be very careful. >> verne: hurd going left and he will be gang tackled.
7:22 pm
think about taking a knee here. the only thing that can go bad is a turnover. >> verne: the streak, barring that, is complete. over. i don't know why -- you're old enough, i know. do you remember in the 1970's the sport of choice was streaking? >> gary: yeah. >> verne: guys would run onto football fields or across the academy -- >> gary: takes a knee here. >> verne: they called it streaking. i don't know t spangler, our production supervisor said to me, "did you ever know walter cronkite?" and i said yes, i had met him a couple of times. he said "did you know that in the mid 1970's on the evening news with walter cronkite he referred to knoxville, tennessee as the capital of streaking.

7:24 pm
>> verne: right. 45 seconds to go. fourth and goal. butch jones. central michigan. cincinnati. fourth year here. graduate of -- >> gary: he will take a time out with one second to go. what a job he's done. they came here. they did not match up talent-wise. the last two years they did but they lost. four years of work to get to
7:25 pm
>> gary: we talked about tough games coming up, they have a tough stretch but if they can get through there, remember, they finish off softly, south carolina, tennessee tech, kentucky, missouri, vandy -- the toughest part of their schedule is always at the beginning. >> verne: this is game one and this is hurd down to the one yard line. it's over.
7:26 pm
>> verne: let's go down to >> allie: coach, the streak is finally over after 11 long years of waiting. what did you tell this team at halftime to ignite what we just saw in the second half? >> one play at a time. we didn't play our best football in the first half. we knew that. it was on us. the players. i can't say enough about them. i love them. they were disappointed. we came out and played a great second half. it gets us to 4-0 and that duck is pulling that truck, baby.
7:27 pm
you don't have to say anything. >> our receivers stepped up, our throw game when we needed the big plays and we knew we needed one momentum play to get this great crowd into it, what an environment, what an atmosphere. >> allie: congratulations. josh, what a second half after starting one for eight today, you set career records in yards and touchdowns. what got in to you? >> we were hurting ourselves at the beginning of the game. we weren't catching balls. the ball locio i'll put the ball there and make plays. that's what we did in the second half. >> allie: you're a senior. this is the last time to play florida. you came away with thein. is it everything you thought? >> it's good. >> allie: what will you tell your teammates? >> 4-0. let's keep that duck pulling that truck. >> allie: the duck pulling the truck references, gary. >> verne: i think they got the message. >> gary: that will be their theme the rest of the year.
7:28 pm
you know what's funny is when the coaches and the players say we're not thinking about the streak, believe me. they're thinking about ending the streak now. >> verne: look who is i go back a long ways in this conference. at the end of the 2001 season, phillip fulmer took tennessee down to florida. and they beat them 34-32, and casey clausen climbed the ladder and led the tennessee band in
