Comments

This a game that might not catch the attention of most college football fans unless you happen to be a Georgia State or Tennessee fan. An early season tune-up game for the Vols. It will be interesting to see how much the Vols are improved in year two of Jeremy Pruitt. We predicted a 13-point win for the Vols but they could win by a lot more.

Note: The Preseason game score prediction and the in-season prediction are all the same this week because the preseason predictions were only made about a week before the season started. In next week’s predictions, you’ll see some differences between the in-season and preseason predictions because we’ll know a lot more about teams after they have played a game.

Our Preseason Prediction

Tennessee 34, Georgia State 21

In-Season 14Powers.com Prediction

Tennessee 34, Georgia State 21

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:30 PM CT (3:30 PM ET). Watch on the ESPNU network.
