The Tennessee Volunteers have announced the dates for their annual Orange & White game and first practice.

The Orange & White game will be the public’s first opportunity to see “team 118” in person.

Last year’s Orange & White game, Tennessee’s first with Butch Jones as head coach, was a huge success, drawing over 60,000 fans.

This year’s game should be just as successful, given the excitement surrounding the Vols’ 2014 recruiting class and the fact that 14 of those players have already enrolled.

The Orange & White game will conclude spring practice, which will be the coaches’ last time with the team — in a football environment — until summer camp begins.
