Challenges for Tennessee

These two teams have the same record. The loser of this game will fall to 0-2 in the league while the winner evens its conference record at 1-1. The Tigers’ still young quarterback, Connor Bazelak, has been very impressive so far in the 2021 season. Bazelak has connected on 106 of 154 passes for 1,200 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions with a pass efficiency of 151.82. If Bazelak plays to his ability the Tigers will probably win. Tennessee has to figure out how to stop Bazelak.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
