Florida vs. Tennessee Prediction | 2022 College Football Predictions | SEC Week 4
Staff • 9/19/2022 in Football
The Florida Gators are heading to Rocky Top to take on Tennessee in a historic SEC East rivalry matchup.
The Gators are reeling right now and almost lost to USF at home. Florida has its backs against the wall in terms of SEC East hopes. The Gators already have a loss to Kentucky, and losing to UT would kill any dreams of Atlanta. Florida is running the football fine, but their QB play has lacked after the upset victory over Utah. Anthony Richardson has had accuracy and turnover problems. Also, Florida's defense is giving up 195 yards per game on the ground. Not a great recipe for success. Can Billy Napier and company turn things around heading into the pivotal matchup?
Josh Heupel has the Volunteers rolling heading into week 4. UT is 4th in the country in scoring. Cedric Tillman and Jabari Small are banged up heading into this one, though. Both superstars for Tennessee left the Akron game with injuries. Hendon Hooker is just fine, however. That's a great thing for the Vols as Hooker is the unquestioned leader of UT's attack on offense that is averaging well over 500 yards per game.
Tennessee is 9.5 point favorite at home. The game will be broadcast on ESPN & kickoff is set for 7:00 PM EST
