In his first two games as Florida’s offensive coordinator, the Gators have taken two completely opposite approaches. In the season opener against Florida Atlantic, the Gators passed 36 times and ran 33, the kind of balanced attack that has defined Weis’ play-calling over the years.

However, with the Gators struggling inside the red zone in their 39-0 win over UAB, Weis took the ball from the air and put it on the ground, calling just two passing plays in the second half.

Will the Gators continue to run more Saturday? Will they go back to a more balanced approach like against FAU? Is this the game Weis finally lets Brantley throw 35 times?

Vols coach Derek Dooley said the Vols are planning for all three scenarios and more.

“We don’t have a lot to go on because in both games they just overwhelmed their opponents and it’s like watching a preseason game,’’ Dooley said. “I don’t think they showed a lot. I know they are going to show a lot more against us. They are able to get two games under their belt and really not go into the deep end of their playbook.

“We are going to have to be prepared for a lot more than what we saw in the first two games.’’

Go Gators !!
