What a difference a week can make for Tennessee and Florida.
Last Monday, Tennessee was coming off three straight losses and had just lost Jalen Hurd who transferred. Florida was coming off a win against Georgia and was ranked in the top 15 in the country.
Now, ESPN’s FPI has Tennessee as the favorite to win the SEC East.

The Volunteers beat FCS Tennessee Tech 55-0, while the Gators lost 31-10 against Arkansas. Florida also will be without the services of quarterback Luke Del Rio, who will miss the game with an injury. The Gators play South Carolina, who beat Tennessee, at noon ET on Saturday.
Tennessee takes on Kentucky. The Volunteers have not won the SEC East since 2007.
