The Streak Lives.
Kentucky took a 27-14 lead on a 50-yard field goal with 11:33 left in the game, but couldn’t close the door to snap the streak. On the final Florida drive, the Gators milked the clock before putting a dagger into the hearts of the Big Blue Nation. For the second time in one night, the Gators scored by throwing a pass to an uncovered receiver.
There was still some magic left in the Cats. The Juice got loose, Charles Walker made a huge fourth down catch and Benny Snell ran it down to the 25 for a chip-shot field goal, but it wasn’t meant to be. A hold by Nick Haynes negated Snell’s run and pushed the Cats back to the 45. McGinnis’ 57 yard game-winning attempt fell short.
Some things just aren’t meant to be. Until next year.
