Challenger Bracket: Florida 29, Temple 24 (OT)

Florida and Temple played one of the more entertaining matches of the weekend, needing sudden death overtime to settle the score in a wide open match. Florida’s Peter Mulville finally found the open field to give the Gators a victory in the 19th minute of the match.

Brett Stubbs opened the scoring for the Gators in the first minute, with Lucas Baistrocchi kicking one of two conversions in the match. The Owls answered a few minutes later when Devon Sugg broke lose for a try to get Temple on the board, starting the seesaw battle. Temple took a 19-14 lead but the Gators looked to gain control with two straight tries to take a 24-19 lead. Temple scored after the buzzer with Peter Mulville punching in for a try, but a missed conversion left the game tied up at the end of regulation.

Florida will play the winner of the North Carolina State vs. Army match in round two.
