GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The Southeastern Conference official who received death threats after a controversial penalty in last year's Florida-Tennessee game has been removed from Saturday's rematch, Florida Today reported.SEC supervisor of officials Bobby Gaston tells the paper he reassigned side judge Bobby Moreau for safety reasons.Moreau made the personal foul call on Florida receiver Dallas Baker in the closing moments of Tennessee's 30-28 win in Knoxville last year.Officials also mistakenly stopped the clock after the penalty with 55 seconds remaining. The miscue gave the Volunteers more time to set up James Wilhoit's game-winning, 50-yard field goal with six seconds to play.Moreau's crew was assigned to officiate Saturday's game in Gainesville. MOREAU, HOWEVER, WILL BE IN NASHVILLE, WORKING THE VANDERBILT-MISSISSIPPI GAME
