The Countdown 2009: 39 Days to Go


Yards ran back for a touchdown by Lynn Hughes on an interception thrown by Florida quarterback Steve Spurrier in 1966. Florida entered the game 7-0 after beating Auburn the week before and had locked up the Heisman Trophy. The Dawgs would intercept three passes on the day as Spurrier and the Gators would miss out on a National Championship.
