Challenges for Tennessee

Tennessee has lost five in a row to the Gators. This Florida squad looks shaky with a close win over South Florida and a rare home loss to Kentucky. The Gators did knock off a supposedly strong Utah team in their opener. Things are looking bright for the Vols’ prospects of a home win but first, the Vols have to stop Gator quarterback Anthony Richardson. Richardson is a dual-threat quarterback who is an above-average runner and a mediocre passer. So far this season Richardson has connected on 41 of 77 passes for 423 yards, four interceptions, and no touchdowns. He’s had a pair of interceptions in each of his last two games. He has 134 yards rushing on 24 carries this season for three touchdowns. If the Vols can get their pair of picks from Richardson UT should glide to a win.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:30 PM CT (3:30 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
