Comments

Last weekend Tennessee stomped Missouri in Columbia, Mo. while South Carolina struggled at home to beat Troy. It’s hard to conceive the idea of this South Carolina team marching into Knoxville and knocking off the Vols. Tennessee should win by double digits but if the Vols shoot themselves in the foot with turnovers and dumb penalties that all goes out the window.
