This weekend, Florida football looks to recover from its heartbreaking home loss to the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide against another Southeastern Conference foe — the Tennessee Volunteers. While the defeat did carry a lot of silver linings, the Orange and Blue will be looking to get back on the winning track with authority against the Big Orange.

Florida and Tennessee are seemingly two programs headed in opposite directions. Since both schools reached a nadir in 2017, the Gators have been steadily improving while the Vols have continued to flounder — in fact, the boys from Rocky Top hit a second rock bottom in 2020 when they went 3-7 in a COVID-shortened season.

Joe Milton was not the answer for Tennessee at quarterback before he got injured. Hendon Hooker took over last week and looked better against Tennessee Tech, but that doesn’t say much about how he’ll do against a Florida team that just pushed Alabama to the limit.


Pat Dooley – Staff Writer

Tennessee’s offense is still a work in progress and Florida should be able to dominate the game on the defensive side of the ball. The real danger is that the Vols have absolutely nothing to lose except a losing streak. UF’s handling of the quarterbacks should be the story of the game.

Game prediction, picks

This game is like a pillow fight with only the pillow cases. Neither of these teams are going to contend for the conference title this year. Very quietly, Guarantano has been sharp this year and will keep that going against a Gators defense that not only has been average, but is without star cornerback Marco Wilson.

When Florida Has the Ball

Quarterback Kyle Trask is coming off his worst statistical performance of the season last week against Kentucky, and he still threw for 256 yards and three touchdowns. That really puts into perspective just how great this season has been for the Heisman Trophy hopeful.


When Tennessee Has the Ball

Tennessee limps into Saturday’s game with an offense that is averaging just 339 yards and 20 points per game. Self-inflicted wounds and mistakes have been commonplace for a Tennessee passing game that averages just 184 yards per game (No. 13 SEC/No. 106 FBS) and has collectively accounted for more interceptions (7) than it has touchdown passes (6).


Final Analysis

No one has found an answer for Kyle Trask and Florida’s high-octane passing attack all season. And Tennessee’s defense isn’t likely to be the first to crack the code. The Vols will be lucky to find a spark on offense with Harrison Bailey at quarterback to complement a solid rushing attack with Eric Gray.
