Tennessee Volunteers at Florida Gators Overview

At this point, the Gators come in off their solitary loss this season to the Michigan Wolverines in Week 1 at the Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas. Despite ten starters being suspended for the opener, the Gators managed to nose out to the front against Michigan and control the game for most of the first half. The problem for Florida came down the back stretch when the Maize and Blue would score 20 unanswered. Despite the 33-17 victory by Michigan, Florida mistakes paved the way for their own demise. The Gators committed two costly turnovers that resulted in 14 Michigan points. The Vols enter undefeated after securing a second win at Rocky Top against Indiana State on Saturday. Though it be the third week of play, the Volunteers were involved in a classic in the Chic-Fil-A Kickoff Game on Labor Day, where Tennessee would overcome a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter to defeat Georgia Tech in double overtime.

Tennessee Volunteers at Florida Gators Week 3 Prediction

Early action on Florida by public money has been revealed through a half-point line movement on the Gators. The market opened at -4.5, with the number moving up to 5 just after. The emotions will be through the ceiling in this one. The Gators will be curating the hosting duties after their home state weathered the scourge of Hurricane Irma. For many within the state, the Gators serve as a distraction. The Orange and Blue know this and were even reluctant to cancel their game last Saturday because of this but of course erred on the side of safety. The atmosphere will be charged and some of those key players that were suspended will likely be back on board for this rivalry game. The Gators will assert their will in this contest and re-establish dominance in this rivalry series. Tennessee upgrades their quality of competition in this fixture and thus the same theatrics that helped them win two weeks ago are out the window.
