Tennessee named FWAA National Team of the Week for win over Florida

During Week 4 of the college football season, the Tennessee Volunteers were able to do away with some ghosts from the past thanks to an impressive comeback win over the SEC East rival Florida Gators.

As a result of their performance last weekend, the Cardinals have been honored by the Football Writers Association of America as the FWAA National Team of the Week.

The news was announced on Monday’s edition of “Playbook,” hosted by Chris Carlin and Gino Torretta on SiriusXM Radio’s “College Sports Nation.” Tennessee is now off to a 4-0 start for the first time since 2003.

“I hope you guys understand the resolve and the resiliency of this football team,” Vols head coach Butch Jones said following the game.

“Must win, all that – that is not the case. We are building something special here with character and competitiveness. The resolve of these kids, with all the expectations on this football game and you go down at halftime, and to have that second half performance. If you don’t have character in your football program, that does not happen.”

The Vols return to action this weekend when they make the trip to Athens for a meeting with the No. 25 Georgia Bulldogs.
