ESPN's College GameDay will be on hand as the Florida Gators look to improve to 2-0 in the SEC with a win over the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday. Both teams enter Saturday's game undefeated.

The Gators got off to a bit of a sluggish start to the year, but they captured a big 20-17 road win over Texas A&M this past Saturday, which injected some additional optimism into their season. The Volunteers are off to a 2-0 start with wins over NC State and Georgia State.

A key for Florida will be slowing Tennessee's potent passing game. Vols quarterback Tyler Bray is averaging over 300 yards passing per contest, and receivers Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson present major threats.

Game Time & Date: 6 p.m. ET, Saturday, Sept. 15

TV: ESPN
