Challenges for Tennessee

The Vols have to put that lopsided loss to the Gamecocks behind them and focus on Vandy. Tennessee will be heavily favored in this game but the players in orange shouldn’t let that go to their heads. You can expect that Vanderbilt is going to bring a lot of pressure on expected quarterback Joe Milton III. How the Vols handle that pressure will be a key to the outcome of this game.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
