Schedule Preview

Bowling Green (9/2)
Bowling Green won’t just roll over for Tennessee but they should get the win. Projected Score: Tennessee 42, Bowling Green 24

Pittsburgh (9/11)
Pittsburgh should be one of the best teams in the ACC and challenge North Carolina and Miami for a coastal division title. Tennessee’s inexperienced offense and defense should have trouble with the panthers. Projected Score: Pittsburgh 38, Tennessee 21

Tennessee Tech (9/18)
Tennessee easily wins. Projected Score: Tennessee 56, Tennessee Tech 17

at.Florida (9/25)
Florida, despite losing a lot of their offensive and defensive talent, is so much more talented than Tennessee. Florida should dominate this game. Projected Score: Florida 42, Tennessee 24

at.Missouri (10/2)
Missouri is a talented offensive team that has a very underrated defense. The tigers might overlook Tennessee, so this is the time for the Vols to step up it up. Projected Score: Missouri 38, Tennessee 31

South Carolina (10/9)
The fight for fifth place in the SEC is between the Gamecocks and Volunteers. If Tennessee wants multiple SEC wins, this is where they can get it.Projected Score: South Carolina 24, Tennessee 17

Ole Miss (10/16)
Tennessee will not be able to stop Ole Miss’ offense. Projected Score: Ole Miss 38, Tennessee 17

at.Alabama (10/23)
Alabama will continue its dominance over Tennessee. Projected Score: Alabama 35, Tennessee 17

at.Kentucky (11/6)
Kentucky is very underrated and should be a great challenge for the Vols. Shutting down Kentucky’s new passing offense will be difficult. Projected Score: Kentucky 28, Tennessee 17

Georgia (11/13)
Georgia’s talent level is extreme. New head coach Josh Heupel and the Vols will not be able to stop that. Projected Score: Georgia 38, Tennessee 10

South Alabama (11/20)
Tennessee should handle South Alabama. Projected Score: Tennessee 49, South Alabama 20

Vanderbilt (11/27)
If there is any SEC game Tennessee can win, it’ll be this one. Projected Score: Tennessee 31, Vanderbilt 24

Projected Score: 4-8 (1-7) SEC
