The Florida Gators head to Neyland Stadium on Saturday to face the Tennessee Vols as they play their first SEC opponent of the season.

The biggest concern for Florida will be the absence of quarterback Luke Del Rio, who was injured in last week's 32–0 victory over North Texas. Del Rio finished 14 of 25 for 186 yards and one interception. The Gator defense played well, setting a school record by allowing just 53 yards on 50 plays.

Last week's game against Ohio was much closer than expected for the Vols, but they managed to hold on for a 28–19 victory. Quarterback Joshua Dobbs threw two 20-yards touchdowns as Josh Malone caught five passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns.

Tennessee has not defeated Florida since 2004.
