Billy Napier, Florida head coach, restrained by multiple assistants during game vs. Tennessee
It’s an electric atmosphere in Knoxville as the No. 11 Vols take on the No. 20 Gators on Saturday.
Tennessee led Florida 17-14 at the half, thanks to a long touchdown drive that ended with a Hendon Hooker scoring pass with 7 seconds remaining.
The Gators are attempting to fight back against the Vols. QB Anthony Richardson is 11-of-20 for 220 yards and 1 passing touchdown against Tennessee’s defense. Richardson hit tight end, Keon Zipperer, for 44 yards and a touchdown, which was his first touchdown pass of the season. Richardson also rushed for a touchdown on a quarterback run play.
The players weren’t the only ones fired up about the game. Gator head coach Billy Napier had to be restrained and dragged off the field while protesting a call.
