The SEC Network it was announced VolsTennessee will play week 1 in Columbia against the South Carolina Gamecocks.
Here’s a look at the rest of the schedule. There is no question the SEC took care of the Vols.
- @South Carolina
- Texas A&M
The Vols travel to Georgia in week 3, but that doesn’t seem as hard as some might believe. It could be a blessing considering the Bulldogs play Auburn week 2 and they will be breaking in a new quarterback.
The only thing the could’ve really helped the Vols is flipping the BYE week before the Alabama game. However, you could also make the point of getting a BYE after playing one of the best teams in the SEC is a positive.
One of the main parts of the schedule that stood out to me was playing the Florida Gators in December. IN NEYLAND.
THE GATORS IN DECEMBER IN NEYLAND.
I love this schedule for the Vols. It gives Tennessee an opportunity to make some noise in the SEC East. The Vols could go 7-3 with this schedule.
Heading into the matchup against the Crimson Tide, Tennessee should be at worst 3-1. As Houston Kress always says, “if the ball bounces the right way, you never know.”
Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer announced Tennessee plans on having fans in the stands so that certainly helps with a tough home schedule.
All I’ve got to say is thank God the SEC is rolling on with football because we all need it in our lives.
