No. 17 Florida 37, Tennessee 20: Trey Burton ran for a pair of touchdowns and sophomore quarterback Jeff Driskel accounted for 300 yards of total offense as the Gators won a crucial Southeastern Conference game on the road.

Florida (3-0, 2-0) scored the final 24 points, chipping away at and eventually overwhelming Tennessee’s early lead to defeat the Volunteers (2-1, 0-1) for the eighth straight time.

Tennessee led 20-13 when linebacker A.J. Johnson scored on a 1-yard blast running from the wildcat formation.

The Gators, who defeated Texas A&M on the road last week, then seized control. Florida repeatedly ripped off chunks of big yardage, including Burton’s 80-yard scoring jaunt and a 75-yard catch-and-run connection from Driskel to Frankie Hammond.
