Florida looks to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Tennessee as the team travels to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt.

The Gators (3-1, 1-1 SEC) blew an 18-point halftime lead to Tennessee, yielding 38 straight points to the Volunteers. Austin Appleby made his first start for the Gators for the injured Luke Del Rio, going 23-for-49 with 296 yards and three touchdowns in the game.

Vanderbilt (2-2, 0-1 SEC) is coming off a thrilling 31–30 win against Western Kentucky. The Commodores have beaten the Gators only once since 1989, having lost 24 of the last 25 meetings between the two schools.
