Florida Responds To Deficit
Arkansas nearly slammed it shut in six minutes, 27 seconds by scoring 14 points early in the third quarter. But, like a team deserving of a shot at the national, Florida responded. The Gators' ensuing drive almost stalled, but Florida coach Urban Meyer kept it alive by calling for a fake punt. On the fourth-and-10 play from the Florida 15-yard line, punter Eric Wilbur rolled right and handed off to wide recevier Jemalle Cornelius, who gained 17 yards. "If we're going to not be successful, we're going to do it by shooting everything we got," Meyer said. "I had a lot of confidence in the guy carrying the ball. That play's been practiced several thousand times, it seems like." Florida took advantage four plays later when Reggie Fish muffed a punt and Woody Pierre-Louis recovered in the end zone. That lucky break would've meant little if Florida's defense gave up a scoring drive on Arkansas' next possession. But the Gators clamped down, allowing Arkansas to get just one first down and forcing the Hogs to punt. A wobbly, 27-yard punt by Jacob Skinner put Florida in ideal field-postion at its own 33. Percy Harvin scampered 67 yards for a touchdown on the next play.
