At the half: Florida 7, Tennessee 3

By Chris Low

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- With both offenses struggling mightily, Florida took a 7-3 lead over Tennessee into halftime Saturday at Neyland Stadium.

Here’s a quick halftime analysis:

Turning point: Tennessee was threatening to take the lead midway through the second quarter after Florida’s Janoris Jenkins mishandled a punt and gave the Vols great field position. With it third-and-goal at the 3, Matt Simms tossed a pass into the end zone that was intercepted by Florida linebacker Jon Bostic.

Player of the half: Tennessee linebacker Nick Reveiz was everywhere in the first half for the Vols, almost single-handedly keeping them in the game. He had seven tackles a few plays into the second quarter and also recovered a fumbled punt.

Stat of the half: The two teams were a combined 4-of-13 on third down in the first half.
