The No. 1 Crimson Tide hung on for a 31-29 win at No. 11 Florida on Saturday after Florida failed to convert a game-tying two-point conversion with 3:10 to go. Florida went for the tie after Dameon Pierce’s 17-yard TD run but the read-option rushing attempt went awry right away and came up a yard short.
Florida had a chance to get the ball back for one last realistic possession after kicking off to Alabama with two timeouts left. But Brian Robinson converted a first down on third and short and ended Florida’s chances of a win.
Florida loses at home to Alabama, 31-29, and if you watched that entire game, you come away thinking they probably deserve to move up in the rankings from No. 11. Very impressive showing by UF today.
