College GameDay is showing off its first conference game of the season in week four, and surprisingly, it’s in SEC.
Davis, Kirk Herbstreet, Desmond Howard, David Pollack, Lee Corso and the gang will head to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Middle East Division playoff ranked between No. 11 Tennessee and No. 20 in Florida.
Tennessee got off to its best start in years under second-year coach Josh Hoebel, starting 3-0 for the first time since 2016—and, coincidentally, the last time the Volunteers beat Florida, who are enjoying five straight wins in that rivalry. .
Meanwhile, Florida is looking to recover from a disappointing two-week period that saw the Gators lost to Kentucky and struggled with a 31-28 win over South Florida. That’s, of course, after week 1 of crunching a No. 7 Utah swamp.
Sporting News takes a look at GameDay’s fourth week visit:
