Trey Burton. All you need to know about the funky Florida offense: Burton, a quarterback, led the team in rushing and receiving — but not passing. He did complete both his passes (for 26 yards) but Burton’s main role was to be a weapon out of the shotgun, running for 110 yards and two touchdowns. His 51-yard run in the fourth quarter put Florida up 31-24. He also rotated out of the shotgun to catch five passes for 35 yards.
Florida safety Will Hill’s interception in overtime. The long run-back only ended up being a footnote, thanks to Georgia’s Tavarres King catching up to Hill. But Hill’s snag of a tipped Aaron Murray pass still allowed the Gators to win the game on a field goal, rather than needing a touchdown on their answering possession.
Florida electing to have faith in Chas Henry’s field-goal kicking. Henry had missed a key field goal in a 10-7 loss at Mississippi State in Florida’s previous game. Then he missed a 42-yarder in the first quarter on Saturday. But the Gators sent him back out for a 34-yarder in the fourth quarter, and he made it, just as he did the game-winning from 37 yards in overtime.
Quote of the game
“I thought they fought valiantly. I don’t think anyone could question their effort, or question their competitive spirit. It was just one of those games where somebody had to lose. Unfortunately, it was us. But I’m proud of the players and the coaches, and our fans and the band, and everybody else.”
— Georgia coach Mark Richt
