Saturday’s game between Florida and Tennessee had one incredible finish.

The Gators won 26-20 on a Hail Mary completed for a 63-yard touchdown to win it as time expired.

Here’s video of the play:

That goes in the books as a 63-yard TD pass from freshman Feleipe Franks to Tyrie Cleveland, who finished with 93 yards in the game.

What did Franks show coach Jim McElwain?

“He showed me he could throw it a long ways,” McElwain told CBS after the game.

What’s incredible is that the play happened moments after fans were booing Florida for running as if they just wanted to run the clock and go to OT. So much for that plan!
