ATLANTA -- It took them awhile, but the Gators finally got on the scoreboard with 28 seconds left in the first quarter when kicker Caleb Sturgis drilled a 48-yard field goal. Alabama leads Florida 9-3 with 13:26 left in the second quarter.
Florida has gained some much-needed momentum since Alabama's impressive start. The Gators forced Alabama to punt on the Crimson Tide's first offensive possession of the second quarter. Brandon Hicks made up for his defensive holding penalty with an excellent tackle of Mark Ingram on 3rd and 5.
