With Arkansas' loss to Louisiana-Monroe dimming the Hogs' star, Florida will be in the College GameDay spotlight for the second consecutive week: ESPN's road show is headed to Knoxville for Florida's game against Tennessee on Saturday, September 15.

Florida has played consecutive games featured on GameDay seven times in its history, all since 1995. The last time GameDay made it to consecutive Gators games, in 2007, Florida fell to LSU at Baton Rouge and beat Kentucky in Lexington in one of the best games in the UF-UK series. ("Rivalry" would be too strong.) That is also the last time that GameDay has appeared at two consecutive Florida road games, but of the 14 games in these seven GameDay back-to-backs, just three have taken place in Gainesville for Gators home games.

Florida's been very successful in its GameDay games with Tennessee, going 5-1 in six appearances. And in Florida's three appearances in GameDay games in Knoxville, the Gators are 3-0.
