GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Steve Spurrier and Johnny Majors probably would not approve.
No. 18 Florida is running the ball early and often, a slow-it-down, ground-and-pound attack featuring senior Mike Gillislee.
No. 23 Tennessee is throwing it all over the field, relying on junior Tyler Bray's accuracy, arm strength and decision-making skills to direct an up-tempo, often no-huddle, offense.
The contrasting styles are working to perfection for the Southeastern Conference rivals. Gillislee helped the Gators (2-0) eke out wins against Bowling Green and Texas A&M. Bray carried the Volunteers (2-0) to victories over North Carolina State and Georgia State.
Whichever teams keeps it going Saturday probably should have a big advantage in the Eastern Division showdown.
Tennessee coach Derek Dooley says "they're going to want it slow and we're going to want it fast."
