Emory Jones barreled into the endzone for a 5-yard rushing touchdown that brought Florida within one score of Alabama to end the third quarter.

The drive started off badly after a muffed kick return set the Gators up on their own 1-yard line. Things got worse after Jones struggled to complete short passes and create distance. Then, Nay’Quan Wright hauled in an 18-yard catch to jumpstart the offense.

Wright followed up with four more rushes for 61 yards and Xzavier Henderson hauled in an 18-yard pass to bring Florida to the opposing 5-yard mark. That’s when Jones closed out the drive by crashing into the pile and stretching into the endzone.

Wright’s performance on the drive would’ve been solid for an entire night, but Florida might not have made it all the way across the field if not for his efforts.
