Regardless, the Vols got a head start on their Florida preparations while preparing for Oregon. Like the Ducks, the Gators utilize a spread option that features a super-quick tailback and a mobile quarterback.
"It's definitely similar," Tennessee linebacker Nick Reveiz said. "They're a spread offense that relies on their speed, making defensive players look at the wrong thing. As a defense, you have to be very disciplined - knowing every gap, what's your fit, where you need to be, who's your responsibility.
"It's good practice for us to be able to have a game with Oregon before Florida comes here."
Whereas Oregon features a scatback named LaMichael James (5-9, 185), Florida's Jeff Demps is equally small (5-8 190) and at least equally fast. Reveiz describes Demps as "similar to those Oregon running backs ... very explosive ... a lot of speed."
"Brantley is a great player," Reveiz said. "He can move. A lot of people don't think he can run but he can. He's a fast kid."
Tennessee coach Derek Dooley agrees that Oregon and Florida are very similar offensively but says there are some notable differences, too.
"With a new quarterback, Florida's done a little more pro style than they've done in the past," he said. "In their spread stuff there's a lot more gap schemes that come with it, whereas Oregon didn't do any gap schemes.
"So it's a little bit of a different attack in a lot of ways, but then there's a lot of similarities."
Tennessee fans can only hope there won't be 48 points' worth of similarities on Saturday afternoon.
