Challenges for Tennessee

The Vols jumped out to a 14-3 lead at South Carolina only to see that lead disappear along with a potential victory. This week’s game pits UT against a less formidable opponent in Knoxville. While the Vols seem to be improved with a win at Auburn and solid showing in other conference contests, UT is still not to the place where the Vols can take an opponent lightly and still come out well.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 4 pm ET (3 PM CT) and can be seen on the SEC Network.
