KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee wants to show it has one of the nation's best offensive lines.


Here comes the Volunteers' best opportunity to make their case.


The star power in Tennessee's game with No. 19 Florida on Saturday is in the trenches instead of at the skill positions. Florida's defensive line has helped the Gators lead the Southeastern Conference in run defense. They're matching up against a Tennessee offensive line that ranks among the most experienced in the country.


Tennessee's line features four senior starters plus junior tackle Antonio "Tiny" Richardson, a potential first-round draft pick. That line faces its toughest test of the season Saturday.


Senior defensive tackle Dominique Easley, another possible first-round pick, anchors a Florida line that's as deep and talented as just about any in the country.
