Comments

This should be a really good game to watch. Both teams are very strong offensively but not stellar defensively. There’s going to be some hate going around in Neyland on Saturday. Tennessee looks very improved but I think Lane Kiffin will be burning the midnight oil preparing for the Vols. Ole Miss wins a close one.
