LEXINGTON, Ky. - After Tim Tebow's sneak failed to do the job, offensivecoordinator Dan Mullen turned to the only other sure-fire goal line play in his playbook - the jump pass.

From Kentucky's 1-yard line with 14 seconds left in the first half, Tebow took a shotgun snap, ran right up behind his offensive line and tossed the ball over the goal line into the waiting arms of tight end Aaron Hernandez.

The play, first made famous against LSU last year, put the Gators up 21-10 at the half. UF's offense, after an initial stall out, has moved very well down the field with Tebow (10-of-13 for 131 yards and three scores) directing it in flawless fashion.

Kentucky's offense has looked almost as good but hasn't been able to keep up. Andre' Woodson (14-of-20 for 162 yards and one touchdown) has faced some pressure and his top wideout, Keenan Burton, left in the middle of the second quarter with a twisted knee.

The Wildcats have an opening to come back and win this game. UF's secondary is very suspect, and two of its top three cornerbacks are hurt. Expect more and more offense in the second half.
