The game between the No. 23 Volunteers and the No. 24 Gators will be one of the highlights of the third week of the college football season and figures to be a key contest in the SEC East race. Florida is 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record.

Riley originally signed a five-year contract when he was hired in December 2014.

"Both guys did some good things and both guys did some things they obviously want back", McElwain said last week.

Riley is 16-12 with the Cornhuskers, including 1-1 this season after a 42-35 loss at OR last week.

BAYLOR: QB Anu Solomon is going through his team's concussion protocol because of symptoms he felt after the last game. Florida is trying to avoid the program's first 0-2 start since 1971. True freshman Charlie Brewer will be the backup.

Minnesota: Coach P.J. Fleck has named Conor Rhoda as the team's full-time starting quarterback.

Fleck made the announcements on Tuesday as the Gophers (2-0) began preparation for the Blue Raiders (1-1). Florida better run the ball better than they did against MI or it's going to be a long day in the Swamp. Fleck didn't specify what Croft did to merit the discipline.
