Florida has Tennessee’s number to get a decade-plus, however the No. 9 Gators would probably soon be with their starting quarterback when they host the Vols on Saturday.
Tennessee vs. Florida was among the SEC’s greatest rivalries but those days are pretty much long gone now since the Vols app has fallen on such hard times in the last several years and they have been dominated inside this series for some time. Florida has only 1 loss in the past 14 meetings, arriving in Knoxville when the Gators were ranked Tennessee 14th and 19th in 2016.
Last year, Florida gathered into a 47-21 road win when both were unranked (UF has never lost in eight assembly when it is rated and UT is not ). Feleipe Franks threw three touchdown passes, all to different receivers, and ran for a score. It turned over six times, with all four of these to 24 Gators points. The 47 points were Florida’s most. UT price itself by glancing a ball out of their end zone for a touchback a touchdown and allowed a security. Jarrett Guarantano went of 18 for 164 yards with a fumble and 2 interceptions.
No trainer is on a hotter seat in the SEC right now than the Jeremy Pruitt of Tennessee. The Vols were flat-out embarrassed in their first two matches at home, losing 38-30 to BYU to Georgia State and 29-26 in double overtime. It was Tennessee’s first 0-2 start since 1988.
Pruitt’s group got its first win last week over FCS little brother Chattanooga. Guarantano tried just eight passes and completed seven to 142 yards and a career-high three touchdowns (all in the first half). Jauan Jennings is the Vol since Josh Malone at 2016 with a TD catch in each of the 3 games and caught a TD pass. Three Vols created their first career starts: Darnell Wright (true freshman) at right guard, K’Rojhn Calbert (redshirt sophomore) at right tackle and Kenneth George Jr. (redshirt junior) at cornerback. This was UT’s 15th straight triumph within an competition.
When the Vols get punked here, then anticipate more and more chit chat regarding the school maybe chasing Ohio State along with Gators head coach Urban Meyer doing work for Fox TV. Meyer recently said that he had been”shocked” at the state of the Tennessee app but it’s a”Top 10″ project in the country.
While this is Tennessee’s first true road game of the year, UF had its this last week and won 29-21 at Kentucky to find revenge for last year’s residence upset loss. The Gators trailed for most of the match, but went on a 19-0 run to return and win. Backup quarterback Kyle Trask directed UF into 3 touchdown drives.
Since Franks suffered a ankle injury which has ended his 15, trask was playing. When Franks has been discontinued at the Kentucky 38 for no gain on fourth-and-1 he was carted off. Franks has been 12-for-17 for 147 yards and a touchdown. Trask, a junior from Texas, was 9-for-13 for 126 yards in his location. UF played with Kentucky without recipient Kadarius Toney, who will not move this week, possibly, and top cornerback C.J. Henderson. He could return throughout the Vols.
Coach Dan Mullen says he intends to play with Trask and redshirt freshman Emory Jones going. Jones considered that the team’s quarterback of the future and is a quarterback Even though Franks is more of a pocket passer. Mullen intended to play Jones some against UK but changed his mind.
“Kyle was sort of sexy,” Mullen said through his postgame press conference. “So, we kind of stuck with it. I had a couple of stuff for Emory in, but we just sort of stuck with Kyle because he had been rolling.”
Florida has won seven games. It also has scored at least 24 points at all of those, the longest such streak since a 24-game stretch that began with a 28-24 loss to LSU on Oct. 6, 2007, and was snapped with a 23-13 win over Tennessee on Sept. 19, 2009. UF is 4-0 in games decided by eight points or less under Mullen.
