Tennessee football dropped its fifth straight to Florida in week four, falling to an even 2-2 on the season.
Four weeks into the college football season, we have a good idea of how teams are stacking up, but this weekend gave teams the chance to prove themselves, and most passed the test.

Tennessee’s first road game of the season is a tough one. The Vols (2-1), after blanking in-state opponent Tennessee Tech in week three, travel south for an evening matchup against the Florida Gators.
The last time the Vols played Florida was Dec. 5, 2020, and it marked the low-point of their miserable season. Quarterback Harrison Bailey made his first career start for the Vols as they dropped the game 31-19 to Florida in Neyland Stadium.

It was another exciting week of college football, with games that had us on the edge of our seats and others that had us groaning out of boredom. Here’s how the nation fared in week three of college football.

The Vols haven’t played Tennessee Tech since Nov. 5, 2016, a homecoming matchup that ended with a 55-0 UT blowout. Josh Dobbs passed for 3 touchdowns and true freshman running back Carlin Fils-Aime added 2 more on the ground. On paper, the win looks like any other blowout over a Football Cha…

Tennessee’s wide receivers have left much to be desired over the first two games of the 2021 season. The group possesses elite speed at nearly every turn and in the new up-tempo offense under head coach Josh Heupel, pass-catching is supposed to be a strength of the team.
