With an 11-year rut of falling short to Florida, the Tennessee Volunteers are itching to take the field on Saturday and put an end to the losing streak that has shadowed them for over a decade. 

Vols' defensive lineman Kendal Vickers spoke with the media just four days before the rivalry matchup about how the 11-year deficit hypes Team 120's efforts to defeat the Gators and weighed in on Tennessee's confident approach in preparing to face their first SEC opponents of the year this weekend. 

"Everybody knows the magnitude of this game, but that's why you play college football – for games like this," Vickers said. "I know we're all excited for it and ready for it."
