·1 min read

Tennessee (2-1, 0-0 SEC) enters Southeastern Conference play Saturday at No. 12 Florida (2-1, 0-1 SEC).

Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. EDT and ESPN will televise the matchup.

Ahead of the contest, Tennessee defensive line coach Rodney Garner met with media and discussed the Vols kicking off SEC play.

“Obviously, you have two really good football teams playing,” Garner said. “It’s going to be a major challenge. Obviously, this is the best offensive line that we’ve faced, best group of running backs, best group of receivers, quarterback – it’s the complete package. We’ve got to elevate our level of play. We’re in conference now, it’s going to be much more intense.

“It’s going to require more strain. I mean, everyone has to strain harder, everyone has to do little extra things that it takes in preparation, in film study, getting extra rest, putting the right things in their bodies and all the little things it takes to play at a high level.”
