Kirk Herbstreit: Florida 'Needs' A Win Today

One team needs a win more than others.

Week 3 of the college football season is here.

Saturday's biggest matchup is a top 15 contest between Clemson and Louisville. However, Kirk Herbstreit is focused on another game.

No. 23 Tennessee takes on No. 24 Florida in a matchup of SEC foes.

Herbie thinks Florida needs to win. On College GameDay Saturday morning, Herbstreit mentioned the Gators as the team that "needs" a win to stay alive this season.

“Could you imaging if Tennessee walks off of that field with a win? Zero and two, where do they go from there? That would be a terrible start.”

The Gators opened the season with a loss to Michigan, and Herbie thinks another loss at home to Tennessee could be the undoing of Florida.

An 0-2 start to the season for the Gators will definitely place Jim McElwain on the hot seat.
