Florida hands Tennessee another loss, 33-23

Posted: Updated:
GAINESVILLE, FL (WSMV-AP) -

Chris Rainey had 233 total yards, including an 83-yard touchdown catch, and No. 16 Florida beat rival Tennessee 33-23 Saturday and extended two decades of dominance in the Southeastern Conference series.

Rainey finished with 108 yards rushing, 104 yards receiving and blocked a punt that led to a field goal. His touchdown pretty much sealed it, allowing the Gators (3-0, 1-0) to push their winning
streak in the series to seven games.

Florida has won 16 of 22 since the Eastern Division teams started playing annually in 1990. The Volunteers (2-1, 0-1) had hoped to end the streak with quarterback Tyler Bray, but it ended
with another Florida celebration in the Swamp.

Rainey and a swarming defense had a lot to do with this one.
