KNOXVILLE, TN (WRCB)--The Tennessee Vols are in game week mode with the University of Florida coming to Knoxville Saturday.
The Gators are a team that hasn't lost to Tennessee since 2004.
The 2 and 2 Vols are coming off Saturday's heartbreaking loss to Georgia 35-32.
But Head Coach Butch Jones says that's history, he's looking forward, not backward, and neither is his team.
" Again, its a new week, it's a new opportunity, I expect them to bounce back, I expect them to be ready to go," says Jones.
" You get tired of being so close, and knowing what you're capable of, it's time for a program win, I think we've earned it and deserve it now we just got to go out there and claim it, there's some motivation behind it," says Vols linebacker Curt Maggitt.
Saturday's game is the first since 1955 with both Florida and Tennessee both unranked, but its still a sell out at Neyland Stadium.
Kick is set for high noon.
