Florida lost to Georgia 17-9 in Jacksonville on Saturday for their first defeat of the season, and perhaps nobody was more heartbroken about the loss than Jordan Reed. The junior tight end led the Gators with five catches for 74 yards, but he had one costly mistake at the end of the game. Reed caught a pass from Jeff Driskel on second-and-six with 2:22 left in the game. He broke a tackle to get the first down, and he was headed toward the end zone where three Georgia defenders converged on him. Reed decided to go airborne around the 5-yard line, and the ball was knocked out of his hands by Jarvis Jones. Georgia recovered the fumble in the end zone for a touchback. Jones had 13 tackles, three sacks, and two forced fumbles, per the AP. Georgia took over after Reed’s fumble and was able to run out the clock for a 17-9 victory. There’s no guarantee Florida would have scored and made a two-point conversion, but the fumble took away their best chance at tying the game. In addition to combining for nine turnovers — six by Florida, three by Georgia (all Aaron Murray interceptions) — the teams were penalized a total of 127 yards. Both teams are now 7-1.
