Anticipation high for tonight's Florida-Tennessee game



Hotels in Knoxville are filled to capacity and excitement is running high for tonight's game between Florida and Tennessee in Knoxville.

This is the first night game between the two teams in eight years, and the first time both have been ranked since 2007.

Demand for tickets is high. On Friday, officials from StubHub told the Knoxville News Sentinel some lower-level tickets had sold for $899, and tickets were ranging from $182 to $600.

The demand remains high as fans can be seen around town Saturday morning with "I need tickets" signs.

Florida coach Will Muschamp said on ESPN's GameDay this morning that RB Mike Gillislee (groin) is ready to play and he expects him to get "about 20 snaps" in tonight's game.

The Gators will be trying to extend its winning streak to eight consecutive over the Vols, and give Muschamp his first victory over a ranked opponent as head coach of the Gators.
