Arkansas State @ Tennessee — September 6

The Vols open the 2014 season with two straight home games against two teams that won a bowl game the previous season.

Arkansas State beat Ball State 23-20 in the Go Daddy Bowl in January.

Tennessee, however, should be able to handle Arkansas State much easier than their week one opponent.

The Vols have no choice but to start the 2014 season 2-0 or they’ll face colossal criticism.

They won’t have any problems with Arkansas State and they’ll get to 2-0.

Prediction: Vols win (2-0)
