    Tennessee’s week four matchup with Florida will be a 7 p.m. ET kick off with ESPN broadcasting the game, the SEC announced Monday.

    The ESPN night spot is typically the second best SEC game of the week as Texas A&M and Arkansas earned the 3:30 CBS kick off slot. Other SEC game times include LSU vs. Mississippi State at noon on ESPN and Kentucky vs. South Carolina at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.

    Florida is off to a 2-0 start, beating Florida Atlantic and South Florida the first two weeks of the season. The Gators will be coming off one of their toughest game of the season, playing Alabama this week at home.

    On the other hand, Tennessee will be coming off its easiest game of the season. The Vols host Tennessee Tech to Neyland Stadium this Saturday at noon ET. The Golden Eagles are 0-2 on the season, losing to Samford and Furman the first two weeks of the season.

    Tennessee is 1-1 entering the Tennessee Tech game and Josh Heupel and his staff are trying to figure out the quarterback position after the Vols played Joe Milton and Hendon Hooker in their week two loss to Pitt.

    Florida has won four straight games over Tennessee and 15 of the last 16 games in the rivalry. The Vols haven’t won in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium since 2003.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
