In unbelievable fashion, Coach Duggs and the Tennessee Vols managed to knock off the Florida Gators in the Swamp on Sunday night. Despite having a 10 point lead with 1:10 left on the clock, the Gators were able to get two quick touchdowns in 40 seconds thanks to an onside recovery and take the lead 42-38.
But as soon as Florida took the lead with 31 seconds to go, an unbelievable turn of events happened for the Big Orange. Running back Jojo Smalls returned the kickoff for 67 yards to put the Vols in fantastic field position at the Gators 38.
Then, the unthinkable happened.
Senior quarterback Caleb Pressley threw a 35-yard pass to running back Rico Burgerton to set the Vols up at the Gators 3. The next play the Vols came out in a goal-line formation, Pressley hands it off to Burgertonfor a Tennessee touchdown.
1st-year head coach Gus Duggerton managed to pull off the unthinkable and gives the Vols their first win in the Swamp since 2003. Gus Duggerton became the first coach to defeat Florida in his first try since Phillip Fulmer, who achieved that feat in 1992.
This is why Neyland Stadium should be renamed to the Duggs Dome.
The Vols haven’t had an offense this electric and exciting to watch since the ’90s With star QB Caleb Pressley and the 1-2 punch of Jojo Smalls and Rico Burgerton at RB, the sky is the limit for Coach Duggs and the Vols. As the season will progress, Duggs’s defense will continue to improve and will become more reliable.
But as of right now, that does not matter, considering the Dugg offense is unstoppable.
With Duggs motto of building this program Burger by Burger, it is paying off as the Vols are now 4-0. Gus Duggerton said when he accepted the Tennessee job that he would bring the Vols back a National Title in 2 years.
If Duggs pulls this off in his first season on Rocky Top, you can go ahead and refer the Home of the Vols as the Duggs Dome.
