The Gators pulled off a miraculous ending in a 27-20 win over Louisiana on Saturday. They trailed by a touchdown with less than two minutes remaining when backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett hit Quinton Dunbar for a 3-yard touchdown pass.

Louisiana then tried to run the clock out and force overtime but Gators coach Will Muschamp called a timeout with 13 seconds left as the Ragin' Cajuns prepared to punt.

And then Loucheiz Purifoy blocked the punt, Jelani Jenkins caught it and the rest is history in one of the most dramatic finishes in Florida football history.
