UT's Derek Dooley says UF game will be "our biggest challenge" so far



Tennessee is coming to Gainesville this weekend looking to end a six-game losing streak to the Gators and even though the Vols are 2-0, coach Derek Dooley said Saturday will be their biggest challenge so far.

"This will be certainly our biggest challenge,'' Dooley said. "Because it's on the road, and against a team that's dominated this league in the last decade. And it's a team that we haven't played very well against in awhile. So it'll be a good measuring stick of where we are.''

Tennessee QB Tyler Bray leads the SEC in total passing yards, passing efficiency and touchdowns (7), but said he expects to face arguably the toughest defense he's seen in his brief, 11-game career.

"They are a fast defense, great up front and a good secondary,'' Bray said. "They are probably the best, between them and North Carolina, they will be probably the best defense I've faced.''
