After a lengthy absence, the national college football spotlight is once again shining on Knoxville.

A day after beating Georgia State 51-13 to open the season 2-0, Tennessee climbed back into The Associated Press Top 25 for the first time since 2008. A few moments later, ESPN confirmed that it is taking its popular college football roadshow to the UT campus for Saturday's game against Florida (TV: ESPN, 6 p.m.). College GameDay hasn't been to Knoxville since 2004.

If fans were geared up before for Saturday's meeting against the 18th-ranked Gators (2-0), Sunday's news only amplified the hype.

"We've been talking about (the Florida game) since January," said Tennessee linebacker Jordan Williams. "That's the one everyone wants. It's the one fans want, too."

The Vols are ranked No. 23 in the AP poll, but did not crack the Top 25 in the coaches' poll, which tends to be more conservative about booting teams out of the rankings after a loss. Florida moved up to No. 18 after coming back to beat Texas A&M 20-17 in College Station.

The Vols started the 2008 season ranked No. 18, but quickly fell out of the polls after a season-opening loss to UCLA. Tennessee replaced coach Phillip Fulmer after that season's 5-7 finish. In the three years since, Tennessee has never won more than seven games and has never been ranked — until today.

The Florida-Tennessee game opened as a pick'em — that is, an even line — in some of the early odds posted by offshore sports books Sunday. After a sluggish opening win against Bowling Green and a listless first half at Texas A&M, the Gators bounced back to post the first come-from-behind second half win in coach Will Muschamp's tenure. Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel was sacked eight times, but still managed to complete 13 of 16 passes for 162 yards.

Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray was sharp against Georgia State, completing 18 of 20 for 310 yards. His quarterback efficiency rating is now fifth-best in the nation.

Bray will likely get plenty of airtime on ESPN, which has three hours to fill in GameDay's new format. The show begins Saturday at 9 a.m. on ESPNU before switching to ESPN at 10 a.m.

The location of the set on campus has not yet been announced, but it should be a place able to accommodate plenty of fans. Backdrops of cheering fans and creative signs are a halllmark of the show.

The show has visited Knoxville seven times, most recently on Oct. 2, 2004, when Auburn beat the Vols 34-10. Overall, the Vols are 2-5 when GameDay is on campus.

Chris Fowler is the show's straight man and ringleader. He's joined by analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack.

Fowler said in his Twitter feed that the show had planned to go to Fayetteville for the Arkansas-Alabama game, but the Razorbacks' upset loss to Louisiana-Monroe caused the change in plans.

"Hey Rocky Top, I'll see you this weekend baby!" Howard wrote in a tweet on Sunday. "We haven't been there in a minute and we missed ya!"

These pollster are delusional. I watch a great deal of college football, and there are at least 5 teams ranked ahead of the Vols that have no business in the rankings. (Stanford, UCLA, Notre Dame, Louisville, and probably Florida.)

The Coaches poll needs to go away. They obviously don't watch the games. There were actually coaches who voted Nebraska ahead of UCLA, and Oklahoma State ahead of Arizona. (Both Nebraska and Oklahoma State lost to those respective teams.)

The first week I thought it was OK that the Vols weren't ranked. With recent history, it's probably better that they earn it. At this point, I believe they have.

While they still have a few warts, this looks like a top 15 team.

I agree, but UCLA may make some noise. They have a good RB and decent defense. Their new coach Mora JR. was pretty good NFL coach. Took Atlanta to play offs, and he's always been one of the best defensive coordinators in the NFL.

No. Not true.

Worley is not that big of a drop off from Bray. With our WRs, Worley could make some noise.

Funny post! and if Arkansas doesn't find a way to block for its QB its going to be a long season for them and a short one for him! I thought they were making a terrible mistake hiring John Smith for just the one season. I bet they are wishing they had went out and tried to find someone more long term now!

That is odd, because Petrino learned under Smith at Louisville before he took over there..You would think Smith could hold the fort down until Arky finds an adequate replacement..I guess Petrino (although morally bankrupt) is a pretty dang good fb coach..Regardless I'm glad it's not UT reeling from coaching changes for a change..GBO!

I was there, too. The TN offense exhibited during that game was one of the most futile, incompetent, and frustrating things I've ever seen. The debut of the Clawfence. That and the defense going into 3rd and Chavis mode toward the end. What a nightmare. Here's hoping this next Saturday will be a different story. We've paid our dues. Karma owes us.

I've been impressed with our team so far, but let's not forget last season started in similar fashion. Some people are getting way too excited. Let's be confident, but let's hold off on the '41-10 UT' predictions.

This is the least impressive Florida team in a long time. If we can't beat them this year, it could be a long time before we do.

Personally, I believe we don't deserve the number 23 ranking right now. We've beat a middle of the pack ACC team and a FCS school.

With that said, I hope we hang 45 on them, but for now I'm approaching it with cautious optimism.

Like it or not, unless this team completely self destructs and gets blown out of four or five games, Derek Dooley isn't going anywhere this year and maybe not next year unless some deep pocket boosters fund it. The athletic department is in a financial crunch and Dave Hart would be hard pressed to justify a multi-million dollar payout on the coattails of what Mike Hamilton did for Fulmer and Pearl.

Nobody can really say what would have happened last year if Hunter and Bray had not gotten hurt. I don't know that we beat Florida, but I think Hunter could have easily been a difference maker in that game.

Will we beat Florida this year? I think so, but I can't be sure. This Gator team doesn't look as intimidating as Florida teams of the past.

Our offensive line will block for Bray and Hunter and Patterson should make some big plays on the outside.

This is the deepest team we've had since Fulmer was fired and depth and experience go a long way in the SEC.

Not really. If something happens to Bray, we have Worley. The Hogs don't have a talented, experienced backup to fill in for Wilson. Worley has faced the toughest teams in the conference.

I think last time they were up on the bridge/walkway on the North side of TBA, the side toward Neyland. It gave them a good sized open area, and the stadium as the backdrop. That seems like the most likely place they'll put their set again.

Stanford hung 50 points on Duke this week. I know its Duke but Stanford is a really good team. I feel the rankings are fair on the AP poll but the USA Today poll was really out there.
If the Vols beat the Gators then UT should move up quite a bit depending on the score. BUT....the polls are just that....opinions of so called "experts".

One only has to read the first sentence to know that you are not one of those who actually know football.

Let's see....on Oct 1st, the Vols will either be 5-0 or 4-1. At the same time, your precious CommonWhores will be 1-3 (at best). The Gators will be 3-1. Vols will still be top-15, top-10 if they're 5-0.

You've told us we were delusional thinking we would beat NC State. Then we crushed them, so you it was because they aren't any good. When we crush the Gators, you'll say it was because they arren't any good either. It will never stop with you, and you will never be right.

You should just wake up and recognize that the Vols have a Heisman candidate QB and the best receiving corps in the country (even without D Rogers).

You're a sad, sad person.
