On Saturday, Tennessee will finally get its first conference game. They’ll take on the Florida Gators, at home, in what should be one of the most exciting matchup of the week. The Tennessee Volunteers have started the season 3-0. Although the Vols haven’t played a conference game this season, Tennessee already knocked off a 17-ranked Pittsburgh Panthers team, on the road, in overtime earlier this season. Florida already has a conference loss to Kentucky but rebounded last week with a 31-28 win over South Florida
It’s Hendon Hooker’s world, and we’re just living in it. The Tennessee quarterback has thrown 844 yards and eight touchdowns in his first three games this season. He’s thrown two interceptions since taking over the starting job last season. He’s found leading wide receiver Jalin Hyatt 18 times for 267 yards and three touchdowns.
That connection averages nearly 15 yards per catch. Hooker’s name will be in the Heisman conversation if he continues this level of play in SEC play. The run game has also been effective behind Jaylen Wright, who has added 231 yards and three touchdowns while averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
Meanwhile, the defense hasn’t rushed the passer as effectively as they would probably like. That could be an issue against Florida. The Gators have plenty tremendously as an offensive line unit but are not getting great quarterback play out of Anthony Richardson. Richardson’s been a great runner and can help develop plays.
But so far, through three games, Richardson has thrown four interceptions with no touchdowns. The offense stalls because of Richardson sometimes, which isn’t helping their case. On the defensive end, the Gators have been poor at rushing the passer. That’s not good news knowing how effective Hooker has been since taking over the starting job at Tennessee.
