When the Volunteers hired Lane Kiffin as their new head coach, most of his early shots and motivation points were aimed at
Florida and Urban Meyer. It started with accusations of NCAA rules violations which were found to be not true, but when Kiffin said that singing “Rocky Top” after beating
Florida this season will be awfully sweet, that seemed to get the Gators attention.
Florida has coasted so far this season with a 62-3 win over
Charleston Southern in the season opener followed by a 56-6 win over
Troy last week. The Gators haven’t allowed a touchdown this season and the offense hasn’t missed a beat in limited action. Last week, Tim Tebow threw for 237 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 71 yards and a score.
Florida racked up 663 yards of offense against
Troy, with 291 yards rushing. Jeffrey Demps and Chris Rainey each rushed for over 80 yards while three different receivers had over 65 yards receiving.
The Volunteers opened the Kiffin era with a 63-7 win over Western Kentucky two weeks ago, but suffered a 19-15 loss to UCLA last weekend. The loss was a defensive struggled as
Tennessee held UCLA to 186 yards, but only amassed 208 on its own. Jonathan Crompton threw three interceptions in the loss and had just 93 yards on 13-of-26 passing. MontarioHardesty led the Volunteers in the game with 89 yards rushing and a touchdown. Defensively,
Tennessee had just one turnover, but forced six fumbles in the game.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made
Florida 29.5-point home favorites over
Tennessee on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 52.
