Vols' Hunter finally gets another shot at Gators

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter has been thinking about this game for an entire year.

Ever since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a 33-23 loss to Florida last September, Hunter has awaited Tennessee's next shot at the Gators. His chance comes Saturday when the 23rd-ranked Volunteers face No. 18 Florida in their Southeastern Conference opener.

Hunter doesn't have any hard feelings toward the Gators. His injury didn't even come from any contact, much less a dirty hit. The injury occurred when Hunter landed awkwardly after making a catch.

Hunter simply considers this a case of unfinished business.

Hunter has an SEC-leading 17 catches for 219 yards. He tied a school record last week by catching three touchdown passes against Georgia State.
