WATCH: Walk-on displays deception for Florida over Georgia in 2014
In 2014, Florida defeated rival by a score of 38-20. It was a big win for the Gators, who upset the then-ranked No. 11 Bulldogs in Jacksonville.

The undoubted play of the game emanated from walk-on receiver Michael McNeely. McNeeley worked at a Publix supermarket on Sunday’s, and was accepted into Florida’s medical school with an extremely impressive academic resume.
He wasn’t expected to make a game-changing play against Georgia. In fact, he wasn’t supposed to make a big play. With that said McNeely (acting as the holder) took a snap on a faked field-goal attempt and scampered 21 yards for a touchdown.
Florida can only hope some of this same magic will be present this upcoming Saturday against it’s fierce rival.
