Tennessee Volunteers vs. Florida Gators Complete Game Preview
Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Last season, Tennessee welcomed ESPN's GameDay to campus for the Florida rivalry as the pregame narrative fixated on the Vols' return to the national picture. Everything was set up for the Vols to make a statement.

In a perfect, orange world, it would have been the program's welcome-back party. Instead, UT blew a second-half lead and allowed 24 consecutive points on its way to a 37-20 setback. It was the beginning of the end of Derek Dooley's coaching tenure and Tennessee's season.

This year, UT (2-1) limps into Gainesville on the heels of a 59-14 wing-whipping by the Oregon Ducks. Florida, meanwhile, has had two weeks to recover from its loss to Miami. Both teams need a win, and the Gators are looking for their ninth straight victory over the Vols.

Here's everything you need to know about the showdown.

 

Date: Saturday, Sept. 21

Time: 3:30 p.m. ET

Place: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville, Fla.

TV: CBS

Radio: Vol Network, Gators Radio Network, Sirius/XM 91

Spread: Florida by 17.5 points, according to Sportsbook
