2014 Opponent: Arkansas State (9/6/14 @ Neyland Stadium)

Arkansas State lost yet another coach, following the 2013 regular season.

Despite this, they still took down Pete Lembo and Ball State in the Go Daddy bowl, by a final score of 23-20.

Again, the Volunteers shouldn’t have too much of a problem with the Red Wolves at home, but games aren’t played on paper and upsets happen every year. Tennessee just has to make sure they don’t put Arkansas State in a position to pull the upset.
