No. 18 Gators rally to defeat No. 23 Vols, 37-20

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jeff Driskel threw two touchdown passes and Trey Burton rushed for a pair of scores Saturday as No. 18 Florida scored the final 24 points to beat No. 23 Tennessee 37-20 and make it eight straight wins against its SEC East rival.

Burton, a fullback who often takes snaps out of the Wildcat formation, raced 80 yards down the right sideline to tie the score 20-20 with 3:15 left in the third quarter.

Florida (3-0, 2-0) went ahead for good on Driskel's 23-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jordan Reed with 30 seconds remaining in the third. Driskel added a 75-yard touchdown pass to Frankie Hammond in the fourth quarter.

Caleb Sturgis kicked three field goals for the Gators.
