Florida has had Tennessee’s amount for a decade-plus, but the No. 9 Gators will soon be without their starting quarterback when they sponsor the Vols on Saturday.
Tennessee vs. Florida used to be among the SEC’s best rivalries but these days are pretty much long gone today since the Vols application has fallen on such hard times in the past several years and they’ve been dominated in this series for some time. Florida has just 1 loss in the previous 14 meetings, arriving in 2016 in Knoxville, 38-28, if the Gators were ranked Tennessee 14th and 19th.
This past year, Florida gathered to a 47-21 road win when both were unranked (UF hasn’t dropped in eight assembly when it is ranked and UT isn’t). Feleipe Franks ran for a score, also threw three touchdown passes, all to different receivers. It switched with four of these leading to 24 Gators points. The 47 points were Florida’s most. UT price itself by fumbling a ball out of the end zone for a 22, a touchdown and also allowed a safety. Jarrett Guarantano went of 18 for 164 yards with 2 interceptions and a fumble.
No trainer is on a milder seat in the SEC right now compared to Tennessee’s Jeremy Pruitt. The Vols were embarrassed in their first two games at home, dropping 38-30 to Georgia State and 29-26 in double overtime. It was Tennessee’s first start since 1988.
Pruitt’s team got its first win over FCS small brother Chattanooga, 45-0. Guarantano tried just eight passes and finished seven for 142 yards and a career-high three touchdowns (all from the first half). Jauan Jennings is the Vol with a TD catch in each of the three games and caught a TD pass. Three Vols created their first career begins: Darnell Wright (true freshman) at right guard, K’Rojhn Calbert (redshirt sophomore) at right tackle and Kenneth George Jr. (redshirt junior) in cornerback. This was UT’s 15th straight forward win over an competition that is in-state.
When the Vols get punked here, expect a growing number of chit chat about the college maybe pursuing Gators and Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, currently doing work for Fox TV. Meyer recently said that he had been”shocked” in the state of the Tennessee program but it’s a”Top 10″ job in the country.
While this is Tennessee’s first road game of the year, UF won to get revenge for the home mad loss of last year and had. The Gators trailed for most of the match, but went on a run late to return and win. Backup quarterback Kyle Trask led UF into three fourth-quarter touchdown drives.
Since Franks suffered a ankle injury that has ended his 15, trask was playing. He was carted off when Franks has been stopped for no gain on fourth-and-1 in the Kentucky 38. Franks was 12-for-17 for 147 yards and a touchdown before the injury. Trask, a junior from Texas, was 9-for-13 for 126 yards in his location. UF played Kentucky without receiver Kadarius Toney, that won’t move this week, possibly, and best cornerback C.J. Henderson. He might return throughout the Vols.
Coach Dan Mullen says he plans to play Trask and redshirt freshman Emory Jones going forward. Even though Franks is much more of a pocket passer,” Jones believed the team’s quarterback of the future and is a quarterback. Mullen planned to play Jones a few against UK but changed his mind.
“Kyle was sort of hot,” Mullen stated during his postgame press conference. “So, we sort of stuck with that. I had a few things to get Emory in, but we just sort of stuck with Kyle since he was rolling.”
Florida has won seven games. It also has scored 24 points at all of those, the longest such streak since a 24-game stretch that started 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 beneath Mullen in games.
