SEC Country is looking back at the top 10 plays of Florida’s season.
Here is No. 5:
The Gators had momentum on their side against Missouri and a two-score lead following a pick-6 by Florida cornerback Jalen “Teez” Tabor. His counterpart, Quincy Wilson, decided to get in on the action on the ensuing possession. After seven straight three-and-outs and the interception by Tabor, the Tigers finally put a drive together just before half. They marched into UF territory with back-to-back big runs by Ish Witter. Wilson, however, would put an end to the series.
After a short gain by Witter and an incompletion by quarterback Drew Lock, Mizzou faced third-and-7 from the Florida 32-yard line. Lock dropped back and threw to his outside receiver, who appeared to be running a curl route. But Wilson jumped his route and made the interception along the sideline. Wilson had one player to beat to reach the end zone, and he stiff-armed the would-be tackler on his way to a 78-yard pick-6.

The play extended Florida’s lead to 20-0, with both touchdowns resulting from defensive scores by Tabor and Wilson, who made his third interception of the season in the 40-14 win over Missouri. It was the first game with two pick-6s by the Gators since 2011 against Furman. It also marked the third time in 2016 that Tabor and Wilson both had picks in a game. Lock, who came into the contest leading the SEC in passing, was held to just 39 yards through the air.
