The Florida Gators and Tennessee Volunteers meet Saturday in week 4 college football action at Neyland Stadium. The Florida Gators look to build on their 2-1 record. The Tennessee Volunteers look for their first 4-0 start since the 2016 season. 

The Florida Gators have lost their last 4 road games. Anthony Richardson is completing 53.2 percent of his passes for 423 yards, 0 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Ricky Pearsall and Xzavier Henderson have combined for 214 receiving yards on 22 catches, while Justin Shorter has 6 receptions. The Florida Gators ground game is averaging 213.3 yards per contest, and Montrell Johnson Jr. leads the way with 240 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, Florida is allowing 26.7 points and 391 yards per game. Trey Dean III leads the Florida Gators with 30 tackles, Justus Boone has 1 sack and Gervon Dexter Sr. has 1 interception.

The Tennessee Volunteers have won their last 4 home games. Hendon Hooker is completing 69.4 percent of his passes for 844 yards, 6 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Jalin Hyatt and Cedric Tillman have combined for 513 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Ramel Keyton has 5 receptions. The Tennessee Volunteers ground game is averaging 182.3 yards per contest, and Jaylen Wright leads the way with 231 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 14.3 points and 345 yards per game. Aaron Beasley leads the Tennessee Volunteers with 22 tackles, Elijah Herring has 2 sacks and Kamal Hadden has 1 interception.

The Gators are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 road games and 5-16-1 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Volunteers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in September and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The over is 18-7-1 in Gators last 26 road games. The over is 8-1 in Volunteers last 9 games overall. The Gators are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Tennessee.

The Florida Gators are an interception and a quarter away from being winless on the season, and Anthony Richardson better get his act together or this season could get out of hand quickly. The Tennessee Volunteers are the more trustworthy team here, especially at home. With all that said, the talent gap between these teams isn't that great. Also, Florida has owned Tennessee over the years, which include wins in 9 of the last 10 meetings. No matter how either of these teams look year after year, the Gators usually just find a way. Not saying Florida wins this game, but the points are a bit much. Give me the road dog.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
