Vols Use Trick Plays to Attack Florida

Two of the biggest plays in the first half of the Tennessee-Florida game came when the Volunteers went to trick plays.

An Inside Look at the Gators New-Look Offense

It has been 11 years since the University of Tennessee has defeated the University of Florida in football.

There have been some close matches, including one point games in 2006 and 2014, but for the most part Florida has controlled the series in recent years.

Florida is in a state of rebuilding, as new head coach Jim McElwain is trying to fix what Will Muschamp couldn’t.  McElwain, the former Alabama offensive coordinator, is an offensive minded coach who has done a lot of work to get this offense back on track. Since many Tennessee fans may not be familiar with what McElwain is doing with the Gators’ offense, this post will examine in-depth what the Vols can expect to see on Saturday and how they might attack Florida’s offense.
