The Florida Gators look to get their second SEC win and remain undefeated. Will Grier is completing 68.4 percent of his passes for 442 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. Grier and Treon Harris have combined for six touchdown passes. DeAndre Goolsby and Demarcus Robinson have combined for 237 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Brandon Powell has seven receptions. The Florida Gators ground game is averaging 170 yards per contest, and Kelvin Taylor leads the way with 154 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Florida is allowing 15.3 points and 258 yards per game. Jarrad Davis leads the Gators with 24 tackles, Jonathan Bullard has three sacks and Vernon Hargreaves, III has two interceptions. Chris Thompson, Jordan Sherit and C'yontai Lewis are questionable while Alex Anzalone is doubtful.
The Volunteers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games on grass. The Gators are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 home games. The Volunteers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
It seems like a lot of people are on the Tennessee bandwagon with this one, but the Vols haven't beaten the Gators since 2004. Last week, Kentucky was supposed to end its long losing drought to Florida and that didn't turn out so well. Also, while Tennessee has improved, it still has yet to get that big win its searching for under coach Butch Jones.
With the Gators defense and help from the home crowd, the Gators find a way to win an ugly football game.
