Florida Fans Erupt After Hearing Tennessee Beat Alabama

It sounds like Florida fans were happy to hear about Tennessee defeating Alabama this past weekend. During the first quarter of the LSU game, both fan bases let out a cheer when they learned the Vols had kicked a field goal to beat the Tide’.

In what may turnout to be the best game of the year in college football, Tennessee kicked a game-winning field goal to snap the losing streak to Alabama. Right after Chase McGrath put away the Tide’, fans were heard on the LSU-Florida broadcast erupting in cheers.

Now, this could have been related to a play on the field, but SEC Network announcers made it a point to say that the score had just been announced inside the stadium. It was Joe Tessitore, alongside former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy, that pointed out the cheers coming from the crowd.

The Vols drove the field with under :20 seconds remaining in the game to setup the game-winning field goal. This came after Alabama had missed its own FG, giving Tennessee’s offense one final shot at victory.
