KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — ESPN’s College GameDay is headed to Knoxville for Saturday’s SEC East Division showdown between Tennessee (3-0) and Florida (3-0).
The Gators have won the past 11 meetings between the teams, but the Vols are riding a nine-game winning streak that dates to last season.
This will be the second time the College GameDay set has been at the site of a Tennessee game this season.
The Vols defeated Virginia Tech in the “Battle at Bristol” on Sept. 10 by a 45-24 count with College GameDay on hand for the record-breaking event.
A crowd of 156,990 was announced at Bristol Motor Speedway.
This will be the 21st time Tennessee has played at a College GameDay site, and the ninth time Knoxville has hosted.
Previously, the most recent trip for ESPN to Rocky Top was in 2012, when Florida scored a 37-20 victory.
The Gators have made 37 appearances on College GameDay, most all-time, ahead of Alabama (36), Ohio State (34) and Florida State (32).
Florida’s most recent appearance was before the 2013 Sugar Bowl against Louisville, a 33-23 loss.
