Challenges for Tennessee
Tennessee is getting better and better under first-year head coach Josh Heupel. Before the season this game looked like a longshot victory at best. Now the Rebels look vulnerable, especially playing in Knoxville against a head coach that dumped the Vols after just one season. To beat Ole Miss you must stop much heralded quarterback Matt Corral. So far this season Corral has connected on 101 of 146 passes for 1,497 yards, 12 touchdowns and no interceptions. Corral also has over 300 yards rushing. Speaking of rushing, Ole Miss does that very well picking up almost 260 yards a game on average. The Rebels do give up some points (31 ppg) so Tennessee might just be able outscore them. This game will be fun to watch.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
