GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida wide receiver Brandon Powell will not be suspended for the first half Saturday at Vanderbilt after getting ejected last weekend at Tennessee.
Powell was ejected in the fourth quarter for throwing a phantom punch as Tennessee safety Rahsaan Gaulden made his bid for a best supporting actor Oscar with a dramatic flop as Powell motioned in his direction.

Florida heard back from the SEC on Monday with the expected result after league officials reviewed the moment in question.
“We’ve received word that he’ll go and nothing from there so it was full go from Monday afternoon on,” Gators coach Jim McElwain said during the SEC coaches teleconference Wednesday.
Powell is second on the team with 15 catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns.
