Florida scores back-to-back pick-sixes against Michigan

  Florida safety Duke Dawson intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown against Michiga.

In the span of 94 seconds of game action, Florida's defense intercepted two of Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight's passes and returned them for touchdowns, taking a 17-10 lead in the second quarter after trailing 10-3.

Florida safety Duke Dawson Jr. was in the right place at the right time, scooping up a pass from Speight that was tipped by wide receiver Kekoa Crawford, and returning it 48 yards for a touchdown. The officials reviewed the play to see if Dawson had stepped out of bounds before crossing the goal line.

The touchdown was quickly confirmed, tying the game 10-10 early in the second quarter.

Speight threw another interception on Michigan's next drive as Gators freshman cornerback C.J. Henderson capitalized on an overthrown pass and returned it for a touchdown. 

After the interceptions, backup quarterback John O'Korn took the field for the Wolverines' next drive as Speight watched from the sidelines. That drive ended with a blocked punt.
