The No. 11 Tennessee Volunteers (4-0) defeated the No. 20 Florida Gators (2-2), 38-33, at home on Saturday. Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel was hyped after the game.

“What a great night on Rocky Top. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen in college or pro football, the energy around this place,” Heupel said.

Tennessee had the lead for most of the game but Florida always stayed within striking range. In the third quarter, the Volunteers started to create some separation from Florida, leading by 10 points in two instances.

Quarterbacks Hendon Hooker and Anthony Richardson put on a show. Hooker led the way for Tennessee with 22 completions for 349 passing yards and two passing touchdowns. He also led the team in rushing with a game-high 112 rushing yards and one touchdown on 13 carries.

While dynamic as a runner, Richardson had thrown zero touchdowns and four interceptions in three games. Going against the 11th-ranked team in the nation, he had to prove a lot of doubters wrong and in some ways he delivered.
