KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Mike Gillislee ran for two touchdowns and No. 10 Florida beat Tennessee 31-17 on Saturday for its sixth consecutive win in the series.
The Gators (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) grabbed a third straight win in Knoxville for the first time in the 40-game series after failing to pull of the feat in 1990, 1998 and 2004.
Tennessee (1-2, 0-1) tied the game at 10 with a 49-yard touchdown pass from Matt Simms to Denarius Moore with 8:59 in the third quarter.
On the next drive, Florida's Omarius Hines pulled off a 36-yard run on a faked punt that set up a 7-yard touchdown pass from John Brantley to Frankie Hammond. Jeremy Brown picked off a pass by Simms that set up Gillislee's second touchdown and gave the Gators a 24-10 lead just before the end of the third quarter.
