The Friday before the Florida game is always one of insane anticipation for Tennessee Football fans, and even with the series losing a bit of its luster over the years, that still hasn’t change. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker dive into the game on Off the Hook Sports’ Friday, Sept. 14 podcast, including prop bets, recruiting battles and the Vols’ health.
Should Vols OL Cooper Mays play at Florida?

Is Florida still the top game for Tennessee Football?
Last year, the Vols’ season came down to the Georgia Bulldogs.

He also looks back on his matchups with UF and Steve Spurrier at the time.
Recruiting battles for Tennessee and Florida
Despite targeting different areas for the most part, the Vols and Gators still often go after the same prospects. Billy Napier went on a recruiting tear in the summer. Who are some of the recruiting targets the two schools have battled for in the 2024 class? Does that make this game even more crucial?
