Tennessee vs Florida Preview

Florida Looks to Prove Themselves

Florida is coming off of a two-point loss to Alabama in a game where they looked really solid. They had two pretty easy wins in the two previous weeks but then proved to be able to hang with the top team in the country. Look for the Gators to try and prove that wasn’t a fluke this week.

Ground Game has Worked for the Gators

One of the things Florida has leaned on so far this year has been their rushing attack. They average 336 yards on the ground per game. Tennessee only has allowed 54 yards on the ground per game. If Florida establishes the run, this could be over early.

Tennessee Needs a Big Win

Tennessee has easily won two of their games but have not won any games this year that have been marquee wins. The Volunteers need to win this game to give them momentum going forward through the rest of this year. This game against Florida will set them up perfectly for success the rest of the year.

What is the Volunteers Identity on Offense?

Tennessee has averaged 42 points a game this season, and that has been with less than 200 yards per game passing. For Tennessee to be successful, they will need to find an identity on the offensive side of the ball.

Look for them to try and establish the passing game on a defense that has allowed 230 yards per game through the air. If Tennessee cannot do this, then they might be in for a long day.
