Week 4 of the 2019 college football season already featured one top 10 team getting upset, as No. 10 Utah fell on the road to USC on Friday night.

Is another one on the way?

ESPN college football analyst Desmond Howard has placed a top 10 team on "upset alert" heading into today's slate of games.

The team: No. 9 Florida.

The Gators are coming off a road win at Kentucky, though they lost their starting quarterback in the process, as Feleipe Franks went down with a season-ending injury. Florida is set to host Tennessee in Gainesville today. The Vols are in need of a huge win.

"Florida might be vulnerable without Franks," Howard said on SportsCenter today.

Dan Mullen's team is now being led by backup Kyle Trask, who looked good in the comeback win over the Wildcats.

Trask threw for 126 yards and rushed for a touchdown in last weekend's road win at Kentucky.

Florida and Tennessee are set to kick off at noon E.T.

The game will be on ESPN.
