Tennessee Volunteers Game Notes

Tennessee HC Josh Heupel declined to name a starting quarterback ahead of Saturday's game. There's an "OR" on the depth chart between Joe Milton and Hendon Hooker, and there seems to be a case for Hooker to become the new starter based purely on recent performance. Heupel said he wasn't addressing "hypotheticals" in regards to the issue. Hooker completed 17-of-25 passes for 199 yards with three touchdowns in the 56-0 win over Tennessee Tech. In the previous game, a 41-34 loss to Pitt, Hooker completed 15-of-21 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns.

Florida Gators Game Notes

Florida redshirt freshman QB Anthony Richardson (hamstring) missed last Saturday's tilt against Alabama, but appears to be on track for Week 4's matchup against Tennessee according to Terry A. Lambert of RockyTopTalk.com. Richardson (6'4/236) has been electric for the Gators this season. He's completed just 5-of-10 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns, and has nine carries for 275 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Richardson is a human highlight reel, whose early season performance has left some crying for him to be the starter. While Richardson doesn't appear to be on the path to a starting role just yet, Dan Mullen does like to get him involved whenever he is healthy, meaning he should see snaps against Tennessee if he is active.
