No. 4 September 1 vs. West Virginia
No, West Virginia isn’t the fourth best team on the Vols’ schedule this season. However, they are ranked as so just because they are the season opener.
With the First Pick
There are so many questions facing Jeremy Pruitt’s first team. With a brand new scheme on both sides of the ball and a lot of new faces, who knows who the season will play out.
Oh, and there’s the fact the game is on the road. On the road meaning not in front of the great fans in Neyland Stadium. If this game was at home, it might be a different story.
The West Virginia game is another one of those games that could go either way. If you’re listening to West Virginia fans, they will tell you it will be a blowout. Honestly, I’m not too sure how they figure that, but we will let them dream. Dreaming is good for the overall health of the human body.
In fact, Tennessee could easily win this game. But, it is going to be tough. Apparently, former Florida quarterback is a Heisman candidate. But, playing in the cakewalk of the Big 12, his stats are inflated.
If this game were played later on in the season, the Vols would have a much better chance at winning. Nonetheless, it gets the fourth toughest game of the season in our rankings.
