Jalen Hurd, like many other Vols, didn’t coming roaring out of the gates against the Gators, but he had some strong runs late that helped Tennessee finish off the Gators 38-28.
None were more impressive than this one in the fourth quarter to give the Vols a first-and-goal that they would eventually turn into a touchdown and a 17-point lead:

Depending how you count it, it looks like it took somewhere between eight to 10 different Gators to finally get Hurd stopped after he breaks a couple initial tackles and then keeps the entire pile moving. Hurd finished the game with 95 yards on 26 carries and two catches for 25 yards and a score.
Efforts like that are how you break an 11-year losing streak.
