This season, GoVols247’s Patrick Brown, Ryan Callahan, Ben McKee, Grant Ramey, and Wes Rucker will each week make their predictions for the biggest games in college football — focusing on the Southeastern Conference and top-25 teams — and, of course, weigh in. on how Tennessee will go.
If you haven’t been able to participate in our annual GoVols247 Pick ‘Em competition, which is already underway, please post your picks – or point out the flaws in the GoVols247 staff’s predictions – in the comments section below this story .

Without further ado, it moves on to the picks, starting with Tennessee’s home game against Florida.
The 11th-ranked Vols (3-0) came off a 63-6 loss to Akron last week, while the No. 20 Gators (2-1, 0-1 SEC) came back a week earlier from a loss to Kentucky with a 31 -28 win over USF.
FLORIDA (+10.5) IN TENNESSEE
Patrick Brown’s prediction
When I look at this game from a football standpoint, most of it points to a Tennessee win. The Vols are the better team with the better quarterback. They’re home and the crowd is going to make all the difference in what is Florida’s first road race this season.
