There was still a chance that one of the most turbulent weeks in Gators football history could end on a positive note and set the tone for the rest of the season.

Yes, even after the roller-coaster ride the Treon Harris case launched, and the third-and-25 LSU converted, and the touchdown pass Tevin Westbrook dropped, Florida had an opportunity to finish off a long, draining week for Gator Nation with a victory Saturday night.

But that storyline was ripped to shreds.

You probably watched it on TV, or read it on social media, or heard your neighbor throw the remote at the wall. More than 88,000 inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium witnessed it in person.

Tie game. The Gators force LSU to punt. Florida takes over at its 42-yard line with 54 seconds left. Plenty of time to set up a game-winning field goal.

Of course they do! If you had been around Gainesville, when they come to town, you would aready know that this is a ridiculous question.

The Friday before the gameday, there's always a stynch that fills the air in Gainesville as the evening comes. As more and more Tigers get off of I-10 and start the trek down I-75 toward Gainesville, the smell just permeates your nostrils and you know you're about to play that purple and gold team from the SEC West. It's the aroma of deep fried corn meal and pork on a stick. 

Even Katy Perry knows about it, and proved it on ESPN Gameday Last week. She also proved her choice of clothing is the taste of an immature 8-year old that loves pink fur.

“L-S-peeew?” Perry trilled when it was time to pick a winner of the LSU-Auburn game, before holding up a corn dog in silence for about 10 seconds, launching it at the camera and then pulling out a plate of corn dogs and announcing, “We heard about you LSU! Heard you were hungry!”

Gators junior running back Matt Jones has created some separation in the Florida backfield. Through four games, Jones leads the team in rushing and is on pace for a 1,000-yard season. Jones is averaging 93 yards per game, seventh in the Southeastern Conference, and has two 100-yard games.

The Gators hope Jones can play in their fifth game Saturday when they host LSU. Jones missed the first two days of practice this week with swelling on his left knee, the same knee he hurt last season to cost him the final six games.

“I fully expect him to play,’’ Gators coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday.

True freshman quarterback Treon Harris is being investigated for sexual assault, the school announced in a press release Monday. The statement says Harris is accused of "sexually assaulting a female student" early Sunday morning after the Tennessee game in a campus residence hall. Due to the seriousness of the charges, Harris has been suspended from all team activities.

Charges have not yet been filed, and some rumors as to the strength oof the case have surfaced in the recent hours. The investigation, however, is ongoing and UF Police Department has brought in Gainesville Police Department to assist with the case.

The echoes of victory crept through the concrete wall and into the small interview room where Gators head coach Will Muschamp was speaking to reporters.

You could hear players and assistant coaches and team staff celebrating one of the most important wins in Muschamp's four seasons.

"A great emotional win,'' Muschamp said.

Florida's 10-9 comeback victory in front of more than 102,000 checker-boarded Tennessee fans at Neyland Stadium was a lot of things.

At times, it was ugly. The Gators had more turnovers (three) than points (none) when the fourth quarter started.

GatorTailgating.com is doing a series of articles on where and how to tailgate at all of the Gator Football away games. This is the first part of our series detailing where and what to look out for in Knoxville, Tennessee. Go Gators!


The Rock on Homecoming

1. Where are the best areas of town for motels to stay in the night before/after the game?

I would stick to the downtown area, and if those hotels are full, try the west side of town for easy in/easy out of knoxville. Motels inside of Knoxville are pretty sparse. You really need to reserve these well in advance. If full, look for hotels by the interstate 20-30 miles out of town.

The story of Joe Vol is a short one, but it's a good one. Joe Vol was born in 1982 just outside of Knoxville on the side of a mountain to two wonderful parents, Junior and Lulu Vol. Growing up, Joe Vol was never afforded the conveniences of life other Americans are so accustomed to; such as stylish clothing, a quality education, or having a girlfriend (other than his first cousin, Betsy). Joe Vol grew up having to wear hand-me-down over-alls, attended the Trade School of Knoxville, and was basically friend-less until the fine people of Gator Tailgating invited him in.

The Gators' trip to face-off with SEC East rival Tennessee will not allow much of a pre-game party for the Vol Navy or Gator tailgators alike. The SEC Network announced today that the game will have a noon ET kickoff.

Muschamp and company will look to extend its winning streak to 10 games against the Vols, but they will have to make some offensive and defensive adjustments in the next 2 weeks to do so. The Gators will be coming off a bye week and another loss that left coach Will Muschamp scratching his head. The Gators' offense was abysmal and the defense, although opporunistic, allowed a lot of big plays and fell apart late in the game when Alabama turned up the heat.

They would probably prefer to burn the game film and toss the ashes into the ocean, never to be seen or heard from the rest of their days.

But after a 42-21 loss to No. 3-ranked Alabama on Saturday, in a game many observers thought the Gators could win and make a statement they were back among the SEC's elite, they harped on their need to study film and correct mistakes.

There's a lot to watch.

"Guys are really upset,'' center Max Garcia said. "We had a lot of opportunities and didn't capitalize. We're frustrated by that, but all we can do is go back and look at the tape and see what happened."

Quarterback Jeff Driskel, after completing only 9 of 28 passes for 93 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, had that tape on his mind, too.
