Gators Hanging On

The Florida Gators hosted the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns on Saturday November 10, 2012. Florida was hosting a 26 point underdog in The Swamp on homecoming. The Ragin’ Cajuns had ideas of ruining the day for Florida alumni and players.

In a much closer than expected game, the team from Louisiana had the Gators on the ropes and the game was all knotted up at 20 points apiece with 13 seconds to go in the game. Most everyone was expecting overtime to determine a winner in this game. All ULL had to do was get a punt off and let their defense hold the Gators until regulation time ran out.

However, in the next few seconds, the Gators’ Louchiez Purifoy would block a ULL punt and Jelani Jenkins would grab the ball and run it into the end zone to give the Gators a 27-20 victory with 2 seconds to go in the game.

Florida players went into celebration mode and The Swamp exploded in delirium. An unbelievable finish to a very close game.

My complete gallery of the game is on Jacksonville.com.
