Tennessee Volunteers Looking To Bounce Back Against Florida Gators

Posted by Blake Frazier on 9/19/2013 8:15:36 PM

The Tennessee Volunteers played the number two ranked Oregon Ducks last week and got blown out by more than 40 points despite scoring 14 points of their own. Now the Volunteers must travel to face the Florida Gators who had last week off, but lost to the Miami Hurricanes in their most recent game. The Gators were upset by the Hurricanes two weeks ago because their offense, which has plenty of talent, but failed to show up and perform.

Odds: Gators -16

What To Watch For From The Tennessee Volunteers

The Volunteers have been led by a solid offense which has numerous players succeeding in the run game and a quarterback who rarely throws the ball but is effective when doing so. Justin Worley has thrown just 57 passes through three games this season but has completed 61% of his passes and has thrown for five touchdowns and only one interception. As for the dominant run game, Rajion Neal has gotten the majority of the carries for 257 yards while his back-up Marlin Lane has just seven fewer carries for 198 rushing yards. As a team they are averaging just over five yards per carry and if they can use their run game and be effective in moving the ball this game may be closer than sports books are expecting. The defense for the Volunteers clearly struggled against Oregon last week, but prior to their meeting with the Ducks Tennessee shutout Austin Peay and limited Western Kentucky to just 20 points showing this team has some hope of limiting the Gators’ offense.

What To Watch For From The Florida Gators

The Gators are led by their quarterback Jeff Driskel on offense as the junior is completing 70% of his passes through two games but has two touchdowns and two interceptions as well. The Gators failed to jump on the Toledo Rockets in their first game and thus their offense hasn’t put up any big numbers like that of the Volunteers. The run game for the Gators has also failed to take off this season as leading rusher Mack Brown is averaging just four yards per carry, which is slightly lower than the team average of 4.2 yards per carry. The Gators have failed to show they are a top 25 team through their two games despite the intensity their defense brings, its is their offense holding them back.


This is a must win for the Gators as they risk falling out of the top 25, while the Volunteers can afford to lose this game it would be a huge win for them especially if they can establish their run game early. Driskel still has plenty of improving to do and his lack of throwing experience could come back and haunt this team, because even though I expect them to win this game, my betting pick is the Volunteers as I expect this game to be closer than the 16 point spread.
