ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit has placed a top 10 team on "upset alert" heading into today's slate of Week 4 games.

The noted ESPN analyst sees No. 9 Florida having a potentially dangerous game against Tennessee today.

"I think Tennessee in a rivalry game, I would not be shocked if it's closer than you expect," Herbstreit said on ESPN's College GameDay this morning.

Florida is coming into the game with a backup quarterback in Kyle Trask, who replaced an injured Feleipe Franks under center at Kentucky last week.

Trask looked good in backup duty, though he'll be making his first start at The Swamp today.

Tennessee, meanwhile, has been highly disappointing through three weeks. The Volunteers will be looking to get their first huge win today.

ESPN analyst Desmond Howard agreed with Herbstreit.

"This will be closer than the experts think," he said.

Florida and Tennessee are set to kick off at noon E.T. The game will be on ESPN.
