The Gators and the Volunteers Get it On in Knoxville


23 September, 2016

"In today's world of social media, I don't have to blow that up". "I've always challenged myself from grade school, middle school and now at the collegiate level".

This weekend, Dobbs will focus his mental energies, competitive juices and superior athletic skills on a problem he and the Vols have been unable to solve. Although Florida has won its last 11 meetings with Tennessee, this marks the fourth time in the last five years the Vols have been favored over the Gators. After all, he boldly predicted a 12th consecutive win for the Gators during a television interview in August.

The Vols were able to exact some revenge the follow year, defeating their former coach 38-7 in 1970. "Tennessee has come close (to winning) two years in a row, but close only works in horseshoes".

2011: Florida was leading 23-7 midway through the third quarter when running back Chris Rainey turned a short pass into an 83-yard touchdown run. No other Tennessee players have more than 70 yards receiving.

Dixon: I don't do score predictions but I will say that we will depend on our defense and run game.

Tennessee hasn't returned the fire, and the only way the Vols can stop all the disrespectful chatter is to win the football game. Both teams are undefeated-with the Vols having played a bit more hard schedule to date-but neither has played any world-beaters so far. "No loss sticks out".

Understanding the one-sided dominance of the Southeastern Conference rivalry between Florida and Tennessee requires a numerical exhibit. Saturday's matchup could be the defining game of the senior's career. Tennessee's line could get a boost this week from the anticipated return of Chance Hall, who started the Vols' final seven games at right tackle last season but hasn't played since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last month.

But Tennessee fell out of the top-10 after a season-opening escape against Appalachian State and slipped by OH a week ago.

Yes, the Volunteers are supposed to be the team to beat in the SEC East in 2016, but they have not proven anything yet. "We're coming to really do what we do and dominate and put ourselves out there as the best defense and the best team in the nation". The new face under center doesn't have the arm that Del Rio has, so Florida will turn to its ground game to move the chains. At the end of the day, you have to go out and execute. Both quarterbacks orchestrated game-winning drives that left Knoxville in a state of disbelief. "That's my mindset - never too high, never too low". Before that contest, Dobbs had only posted three touchdowns and two picks with a little over 250 yards passing.

When Tennessee squandered a 17-0 lead to SC but held on for a 27-24 win, Dobbs was front and center. Quarterback Rex Grossman, the best pure passer Steve Spurrier ever coached, led Florida on a 77-yard drive that culminated in a two-yard touchdown pass to Carlos Perez. Safety Reggie Nelson intercepted Vol quarterback Erik Ainge's pass on the next drive and the Gators ran out the clock.

The 21-year-old carries this attitude into the huddle on every play. "How do you like that?", Wilson said.
