Pretty sure nobody in the college football world thought Georgia State would give the Tennessee Volunteers any problems, and they were correct. At the same time, no one really saw much to gain from the Vols knocking off Georgia State.

That was where most of the country was incorrect.

Following Tennessee's stomping of Georgia State, it was announced via Twitter this morning that ESPN's College Gameday would be making their next stop in Knoxville and the University of Tennessee for one of the best rivalry games in the SEC.


We're heading to Knoxville, TN Saturday to see #Florida take on #Tennessee! Can't wait to get to Rocky Top!

The Volunteers haven't defeated the Florida Gators since 2004, but with Florida not appearing too sharp in their first two games, this could be the year Tennessee turns it around.

This will mark the 18th appearance Tennessee has made at a College Gameday and it will also be the fifth time Knoxville has hosted the festivities which ties them for the fifth-most in NCAA history. 

To make things ever better, it was also released that the Tennessee Volunteers jumped up to number 23 in the latest installment of the AP Top 25, snapping a horrid 64-week streak of being unranked.

Without question, there is no better time to be a fan of the Tennessee Volunteers.
