Muench's Trenches: Tennessee vs. Florida
September, 20, 2013
By Steve Muench | ESPN Insider
College football fans without an affiliation to Tennessee or Florida may have a hard time getting excited for the Vols visiting Gainesville this weekend. And who could blame them. The Gators have won the last eight meetings between these schools, and it hasn’t been all that close, as the Gators have won by at least 10 points in each of the last five games. The last time the Volunteers won -- at home in 2004 -- they needed a 50-yard field goal with six seconds left. To put that in perspective, Phillip Fulmer would coach Tennessee for another four seasons.
It’s not as if Florida comes into this game the powerhouse it was in the past either. Saturday marks just the second time that one of the teams isn't undefeated heading into the game since they started playing each other every year in 1990.
One aspect of this game hasn’t changed though: There’s still plenty of NFL talent in the trenches.
