Challenges for Tennessee

This is an important game for Tennessee as far as bowl opportunities are concerned. The Vols have got to take South Alabama seriously. What Vol fan can forget the nightmare back in 2019 of losing to Georgia State? USA relies heavily on the run. They are currently 17th nationally in rushing offense. They have three backs that each have over 400 yards rushing including Tucker Gregg (718), Jamyest Williams (577), and quarterback Darren Grainger (445). While stopping the run should be first priority, South Alabama has a passing threat too. Jaguar quarterbacks have thrown 18 touchdown passes this season which is three more than their 15 rushing TDs.
