Challenges for Tennessee

The Vols showed signs of life a couple weeks ago at Georgia. Baby steps. After a bye week the goal should be to improve on offense while maintaining their tough defensive approach. If you keep improving something good will eventually happen.

Challenges for Auburn

The Tigers had better get things together. Tennessee has had an extra week to heal up and prepare for the Tigers. Auburn’s offense, namely Jarrett Stidham, needs to be more productive. Don’t overlook the Vols.

Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon ET (11 AM CT) and can be seen on the SEC Network.
