The No. 24 ranked Florida Gators finally scored an offensive touchdown. It took them to their second game of the season to do it.

The Gators, who had last weekend’s game cancelled due to Hurricane Irma, scored the offensive touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The Gators had to wait until 5:54 left in the game when freshman quarterback Feleipe Franks hit wide receiver Brandon Powell for a five-yard touchdown. This was the team’s first offensive touchdown of the 2017 season.

Prior to this score, the Gators strong defense outranked their offense, as they had three touchdowns. The defense also had a touchdown earlier in the game, as cornerback intercepted Volunteers quarterback Quinten Dormady for a 16-yard touchdown.

The defense also had two defensive touchdowns against the Michigan Wolverines in the season-opener on Labor Day weekend.

Their game with Northern Colorado was cancelled last weekend. This game likely will not be made up, as the Gators do not have a bye week through the rest of the season.
