He sat out the first half of the Vanderbilt game the next week but came off the bench in the second half to help the Tigers pull out a 23-16 win. The Gators’ other fast wide receiver, freshman Tyrie Cleveland, caught only two passes for 19 yards, a week after he and Appleby connected on a 98-yard touchdown against LSU.
