Tennessee pulled off a huge road win last week at South Carolina thanks to a pick-six that provided the difference in the outcome game. The Vols need to do better on third down though. Nine percent third down conversions is a recipe for trouble. Mizzou looks like they could cause problems for the Vols but I think Tennessee wins this one.
