Tennessee continues its preparations for Week 6 opponent Florida.

The Volunteers (2-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) kick off against the Gators (2-1, 0-1) at a sold-out Neyland Stadium in Knoxville on Saturday at noon (TV: ESPN Network).

The Gators have outscored the Big Orange 281-143 during their nine-game winning streak and have taken 8 of 10 in Knoxville since 1994.

Tennessee seeks a win in its first home SEC game for the first time since beating Georgia in October 2007.

Ball security will be at a premium for Tennessee as a fumble in its own end zone gave No. 12 Georgia its game winning points in Athens on Saturday. Florida is tied for second in the SEC and tied for 14th in the nation in forced fumbles.

Question marks and intrigue surround the practice field on Rocky Top as starters attempt to return from injuries. The Orange & White already lead the FBS in number of true freshmen (22) that have played.
