Florida looks to extend their winning streak over the Vols. Getty Images.

Old rivals will meet once again this Saturday when the Florida Gators (2-0) look for a win against the visiting Tennessee Volunteers (2-0) in the Swamp. This series may not exactly be what it once was but that might not matter this weekend as both teams are looking to get off to a good start in the SEC East.

Florida has won six straight meetings with the Vols but Scott Carter, senior writer at says that getting pressure on Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray will be a key in this year’s game. Bray is coming off a monster performance against Cincinnati (dare we say Cam Newton-esque?) Florida has only allowed three points through two games,but the competition steps up a couple notches this weekend in Gainesville.

On today’s podcast we talk about this rivalry game and set the scene for what should be a fantastic atmosphere with Carter. In addition we talk about the coaching transition to the Will Muschamp Era, with a side of Charlie Weis. We also touch briefly on the rest of the SEC teams of note, including South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and LSU and I drop in a quick question about Oklahoma vs. Florida State, knowing that Carter has covered the Seminoles in the past as well.
