It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win for Tennessee football on Saturday night. Nothing worked for the Volunteers offensively — inaccurate passing, dropped balls, several questionable moments from the officials — you just hope this group is able to flush it and move on.
Tennessee wasn’t punished in the polls, hanging tough at No. 9 in the latest Coaches Poll. The Volunteers move on to Gainesville this weekend, where they’ll look to beat the Florida Gators on the road for the first time since 2003.
Georgia held on to the top spot, earning 64 first-place votes. Michigan, Florida State, Ohio State and USC followed. Texas jumped up to No. 6 following their win over Alabama, which dropped to No. 10.
Tennessee moves to No. 11 in the AP poll.
