Tennessee-Florida Prediction

Tennessee and Florida are two teams that are not their normal selves. Florida, in particular, has fallen on really hard times. While the Gators should be in the SEC Tourney, the NCAA is far less likely. The Gators need a strong finish in order to reach the NCAAs. Tennessee, behind very strong pitching and fielding is no longer a pushover. The Vols should win this series but Florida will probably win at least one game. Tennessee 2 wins, Florida 1 win.
