Butch Jones and the Tennessee Volunteers will face their biggest challenge of this young season when they take on the Oregon Ducks this afternoon.
The Ducks are the number two ranked nation in the country, and although Chip Kelly has moved on to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Ducks are just as dangerous under Mark Helfrich.
Oregon has outscored their first two opponents this season by a combined total of 125-13.
Helfrich took over as head coach this season, after serving as the team’s offensive coordinator from 2009-2012.
Oregon has won two straight BCS bowl games, after losing to Auburn in the 2010 national championship game.
