It’s a huge SEC showdown on Saturday night at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville. The Tennessee Volunteers make the trip to Florida to take on the Gators.
The Volunteers won the only meeting played between the two teams last year by the final score of 38-28.
The Tennessee Volunteers come into this game with a 2-0 record and are ranked 23rd in the nation, but a win in this game would really bounce then up the polls.
After a tough first game against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets that ultimately was decided in overtime, the Volunteers came out strong from the opening kick against Indiana State on the way to a 42-7 victory.
Quarterback Quinten Dormady played pretty well against Indiana State, He threw for 194 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw an interception.
He needs to work on those interceptions and limit those in this game. The Gators defense is really good and if Dormady makes even the slightest mistake they will jump all over it.
The other part that needs to play better is the defense. The Gators offense isn’t that good, and the Volunteers can’t make them feel like they are.
They need to get pressure early and make whoever is quarterback for the Gators uncomfortable. They will turn the ball over too the Gators just need to force it.
On the other side of this match up is the Florida Gators who have had a long time to think about their season opening loss against the Michigan Wolverines.
It seemed like half the team was suspended for the week one game, and they will get most of those guys back this week, which is a huge boost for their chances this week.
Feleipe Franks will be getting the start in this game, after struggling in week one against the Wolverines, but I don’t know how long we should expect to see him.
The Gators have a couple of more options at quarterback, and if Franks struggles early I wouldn’t be surprised if he got pulled early.
The strength of this team is the defense and they are going to have to come up big in this one. The offense really can’t win this team many games by itself and so the defense is really going to need to step up big in this one.

I think this game is going to be a real barn burner.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Tennessee ATS
I think bot teams will struggle on offense in this one, and that will allow the game to stay close until the end of the game.
I think the Florida Gators will use the home crowd advantage to come out on top, but the Volunteers will be able to cover the spread.
