SEC Country is looking back at the top 10 plays of Florida’s season.
Here is No. 9:
Florida was ahead 14-10 over Georgia at halftime after a late touchdown drive in the second quarter. The Gators had a chance to extend that lead on their first possession of the third quarter, but the offense stalled in the red zone and kicker Eddy Pineiro missed a 33-yard field goal. The Bulldogs weren’t able to capitalize on the ensuing series, going three-and-out for the fifth time in their last six drives. Florida needed to put UGA away on the next possession, and it did.
The Gators drove into the red zone once again and faced third-and-3 from the 4-yard line. Instead of trying to pass or pound it up the middle, offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier dialed up a rarely used jet sweep. Wide receiver Antonio Callaway lined up on the outside and then came in motion from left to right. Quarterback Luke Del Rio hiked the ball just before Callaway ran by and handed it off seamlessly. With a key block from tight end C’yontai Lewis, Callaway was on his way into the end zone before the UGA defense realized what happened.
This was sweep.

The touchdown gave UF a two-score lead late in the third quarter, which was enough cushion for the rest of the game in Florida’s 24-10 win. The jet sweep also gave Callaway a unique achievement. With that run, he became the first player in school history to score a touchdown five different ways (receiving, rushing, passing, kick return and punt return) during his college career.
