    Tennessee defensive line coach Rodney Garner met with the local media Tuesday ahead of the Vols’ SEC opener at Florida.

    Garner discussed Florida’s highly touted offense and how SEC games are different than non conference clashes.

    The longtime SEC defensive line coach went into detail about how his unit has been able to be successful against the run, Byron Young’s debut and how Aubrey Solomon can earn more snaps.

    Tennessee is over three-touchdown underdogs in the week four matchup in Gainesville. The Gators are coming off a hard fought loss to Alabama while the Vols are coming off a dominant win against Tennessee Tech.

    The primetime, ESPN matchup will kick of at 7 p.m. ET from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville.

    You can see Garner’s full media availability below.

    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.
