Former Gators QB Tim Tebow was on the Paul Finebaum Show on Friday to discuss Florida’s matchup with Tennessee and UF’s chances of pulling out the win.
The Gators have had an odd start to the season, getting outclassed by Michigan in Week 1 and then canceling their Week 2 matchup vs Northern Colorado due to Hurricane Irma.
Without a chance to tune up its skills between the Wolverines and the Volunteers, Florida is in a tough spot this weekend.
“That’s a difficult transition to make,” Tebow said. “We’re going to find out what the leadership of Florida is all about.”
Tebow added he expects the defense to play well and “show a lot of pride,” but he’s concerned about the offense moving the ball against Tennessee.
“The question to me is, will they have enough playmakers on offense to get 17-21 points and give them a shot at home? I think the crowd will play a big part as well,” Tebow said.
Tebow gave one more piece of advice to the Gators:
“They have to find momentum and they have to play with belief that they’re good players and they can make big-time plays,” Tebow said. “Because that offense? They need to be reminded about it.”
Tennessee and Florida kick off from Gainesville at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
