No. 11 Tennessee (4-0, 1-0 SEC) defeated No. 20 Florida (2-2, 1-1 SEC) in nail-biting fashion on Saturday night. The Vols snagged an interception on the final play of the game to seal a 38-33 win over Florida, snapping a five-game losing streak to the Gators. Here's what Vols head coach Josh Heupel, quarterback Hendon Hooker, wide receiver Bru McCoy, defensive end LaTrell Bumphus, defensive tackle Omari Thomas, and running back Jabari Small had to say following the win.
Jabari Small didn’t attempt to downplay the significance of what Tennessee accomplished Saturday afternoon. For just the second time in 18 years, the Vols took down rival Florida, this time in a showdown between nationally ranked teams that put them in the national spotlight. No. 11 Tennessee held off...
Everything second-year Tennessee coach Josh Heupel said after his 11th-ranked Vols beat No. 20 Florida 38-33 on Saturday inside a sold-out Neyland Stadium:. “Man, what a great night on campus and on Rocky Top. Fanbase, unbelievable energy. Knew it would be that way, but it even surpassed my expectations. The Vol Walk was unlike anything I’ve ever seen as a college football player or college coach. The energy inside the stadium was electric. The fans were a huge part of the win tonight. Appreciate everything you guys have done here as we try to build this program.
The hype can’t be any bigger for this one. College Gameday heads to Knoxville, Tennessee for one of the best rivalries in the SEC. The Florida Gators travel to take on the Tennessee Volunteers this upcoming Saturday. The Gators will look to play much better after an abysmal performance against South Florida last weekend. Sophomore quarterback Anthony Richardson has received a lot of criticism after his last two performances. The Gainesville native has yet to throw a passing touchdown through three games and has totaled four interceptions. However, he has a great opportunity to shift the narrative Saturday afternoon. Richardson has been a little banged up and hasn’t shown much of his ability to run since the season opener. I expect that to change this weekend. I am expecting Richardson to have a solid showing and get back on track after two poor performances.
