And here we go.
After everything this year has given (or taken away) from college football fans, it will still end in a circus of chaos as “Selection Sunday” is finally upon us.
Starting at noon, ESPN will unveil the remainder of the college football season in segments. The selection process will begin with the unveiling of the teams competing in the College Football Playoffs, followed by all of the New Years Six Bowl matchups.
After that, the remainder of the bowl game slate, including Tennessee’s likely bowl game, will be announced.
How to Watch ESPN’s Selection Sunday:
When: 12 p.m., EST, Dec. 20
Tennessee Bowl Predictions:
ESPN: After having opposing thoughts heading into the final game of the season, ESPN’s Mark Schlabach and Kyle Bonagura have both ended up with the same prediction for the Vols.
Schlabach and Bonagura both predict that Tennessee will play in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl from Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis on Dec. 31.
Both of them have the West Virginia Mountaineers as the Vols bowl game opponent.
CBS Sports: Jerry Palm, known aficionado of the predictions for CBS, also has predicted for the Vols to go bowling, just in a different Tennessee city.
According to Palm of CBS Sports, he has predicted Tennessee to play in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30 against the Iowa Hawkeyes. The game will be played in Nashville and will feature the Big 10 vs the SEC, whomever should be selected.
The Blitz on Fanrun Radio: Well this may seem a bit pretentious, but i’ll go ahead and throw my own prediction out for the show.
First are foremost, I believe the CFP selections will be No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Ohio State, and No. 4 Notre Dame.
But more importantly, I think, the Vols will have another game to test out their quarterbacks and plan for the future. In my opinion, the next time we see the Vols, will definitely be in either Memphis or Nashville. I would believe the Vols will be a strong consideration for the Music City Bowl, who is always happy to host the Vols, especially when nationwide travel is so limited.
Tune into the College Football Selection Sunday Show on ESPN today at noon eastern time to see where the Vols will be heading to finish out 2020.
