Florida Pulls Off Fake Punt, Scores 66-Yard TD On Next Play

Florida scores its first touchdown of the season after a fake punt.

College football season is here. We've already got our first big moment of the 2019 campaign.

Florida, trailing 3-0 to Miami at the Camping World Kickoff, pulled off a gutsy fake punt to keep its first drive alive. Facing a 4th-and-3, Tommy Townsend ran for a six-yard gain to keep things going for the Gators.

One play later, quarterback Feleipe Franks found Kadarius Toney for a 66-yard touchdown. It gave the Gators a 7-3 lead.

The two plays caused a huge swing in momentum. Miami had looked great on its first drive down the field.

Miami, following Florida's touchdown, could not muster much on its next drive.

Florida vs. Miami is the first FBS game of the season. Most teams start their seasons next weekend.

The game is being aired on ESPN. It should be a good one.
