KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Austin Hardin made a 49-yard field goal with 6:20 remaining Saturday as Florida erased a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat Tennessee 10-9 and continue its decade-long mastery of this rivalry.

Florida (3-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) rallied behind freshman quarterback Treon Harris, who led both of the Gators' scoring drives after replacing an ineffective Jeff Driskel. Matt Jones rushed for 114 yards and had a 32-yard run to set up Hardin's winning kick, which gave Florida its 10th straight victory over Tennessee (2-3, 0-2).

Tennessee drove into Florida territory before Keanu Neal sealed the victory by intercepting a Justin Worley pass at the Florida 23 with 51 seconds left.

Aaron Medley kicked three field goals for Tennessee.

Tennessee led 9-0 when Jalen Tabor started Florida's comeback by sacking Worley, knocking the ball loose and recovering the fumble at Tennessee's 30. That turnover led to Jones' 2-yard touchdown run with 13:40 remaining.
