Saturday Selections: Florida-Tennessee thread

Live (or soon to be) from The Swamp...

The Gators and Volunteers kickoff in roughly four hours at 3:30 p.m., CBS - SEC Game of the Week. 

UT hasn't beat UF since 2004. Since then, the Gators have won a pair of BCS National Championships, while the Vols are on their fourth head coach. 

Really. 

ICYMI: My advance on today's game. Against UT, Gators out to fix problems in the red zone.  

Gator

*****UPDATE*****

Freshman wideout Demarcus Robinson has been suspended for today's game for violating team rules, the school announced a short time ago. 

Robinson, a heralded prospect, has yet to catch a pass in two games. The 6-foot-2, 201 pound WR has been targeted three times. 

*****UPDATE NO. 2*****

Tennessee announced redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback. Helluva place to have your first career start. 

PICKS

I hope y'all are paying attention 'cause I'm making fools money with these picks.

Scoreboard: 13-6 ATS, 1-1 selecting Florida games

This week's six-pack:

LSU (-17) vs. Auburn 

Texas A&M (-27.5) vs. SMU

Georgia Tech (-6.5) vs. North Carolina

Mizzou (-3) at Indiana  

Georgia (-32) vs. North Texas

And finally, Florida (-17) over Tennessee. 

It's a fat number and one UF likely can't cover -- SO TAKE THE UNDER (47.5) -- but why am I picking the Gators?

Tennessee has limited depth -- on both sides of the ball. A quarterback battle the week before playing one of the nation's top defenses? Not good either. When Rajion Neal is your top offensive threat, you're in trouble. 

Enjoy the game, everybody.
