WATCH: Florida freshman records second pick six in as many games

Pick sixes in college football are sometimes some of the most difficult plays to execute, given the amount that has to go right to be executed properly. 

That wasn't the case for Florida defensive back CJ Henderson against Tennessee on Saturday.

With the Vols backed up on their own seven-yard line, Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormandy's pass sailed high abd tipped off the hands of wide receiver Marquez Callaway right into the arms of Henderson.

Henderson, a true freshman, went untouched as he returned the interception 16 yards for Florida's first touchdown of the game, giving the Gators a 13-3 lead early in the fourth quarter.

That was the second pick six in as many games for Henderson as the Gators had two in their Week 1 loss against Michigan.

Not a bad start to his collegiate career.
