The 2023 edition of the Florida-Tennessee college football rivalry represents the Southeastern Conference schedule opener for both schools on Sept. 16. It also serves as a major moment in the Gators’ recruiting efforts as a plethora of prep prospects have planned to converge on the Swamp that Saturday. One of the bigger names planning on a mid-September stop in Gainesville is five-star wide receiver Dallas Wilson out of Tampa (Florida) Bay Tech in the 2025 recruiting cycle, who is currently committed to the Oregon Ducks.
