Kentucky Falls To Gators In Triple Overtime 36-30

Sep 14, 2014

Matt Jones' 1-yard plunge in triple overtime gave Florida a 36-30 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night.

The victory extended the Gators' winning streak in the Southeastern Conference series to 28 games.

Kentucky's Austin MacGinnis, who hit a 51-yarder to tie the game late in the fourth quarter, missed a 41-yarder to start the third extra frame.

Jones had consecutive big runs that put Florida at the 1 and then slammed through the line on second down for the game-winner.

The play of the game was Florida's fourth-and-7 conversion in the first overtime. With the play clock ticking down to zero, Jeff Driskel floated a ball to the back corner of the end zone and found Demarcus Robinson for a 9-yard score. 

UK Coach Mark Stoops vehemently pleaded his case to no avail.

Quarterback Patrick Towles threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns and three interceptions in the losing effort.
