Florida Gators vs Tennessee Volunteers
The Gators are known for their ability to run the ball. They produce an average of 212 rushing yards per game through the first three games. Junior running back Montrell Johnson has been leading the way with 25 carries for 240 yards and two touchdowns. Johnson had a huge game against the South Florida Bulls last week, as he carried the ball six times for 103 yards and a touchdown.
Through the first three games of the season, the Gators' defense has been struggling, allowing 26.7 points per game and 373.3 yards per game. They were able to defeat the Bulls, but they could not stop them from moving the chains consistently with 8-of-15 third-down conversions.
The Gators' concern is now on their two players, right tackle Michael Tarquin and linebacker Ventrell Miller, who left the field earlier in the game against Kentucky. Tarquin and Miller were subbed off after suffering lower body injuries. Meanwhile, Jaydon Hill is still dealing with his knee issue since the fall camp.
The Tennessee Volunteers are having their best season start since 2016, winning the first three games. They are one of the three teams in SEC East who won all the first three games, alongside the Georgia Bulldogs and the Kentucky Wildcats.
The passing game of the Volunteers relies heavily on the ability of junior wide receiver Jalin Hyatt. Through the first three games of the season, he has 18 receptions for 260 yards and three touchdowns. Last week, against Akron, Hyatt had five receptions for a career-high 166 yards and two touchdowns. If he can continue this performance, it will be a great sign for the team.
The Tennessee Volunteers' defense has been very effective this season, allowing just 14.4 points per game. They were able to hold the Akron Zips to six points last week. The Zips only managed to convert one of 13 third-down attempts during the game. The Volunteers also limited the number of runs to 1.5 yards per carry by stacking the box.
Running back Jabari Small, who has scored one touchdown, was pulled off earlier in the game against Akron and is still under the doctor's supervision. Wide receiver Cedric Tillman is also in doubt to be a starter against the Gators.
