Okay, so we will mention one mismatch. But he’s an obvious one. Dominick Wood-Anderson should always be a mismatch against lesser opponents, and an FCS program is no different. He can be the guy to spot Tennessee football an early lead so they can get out of there with a victory.
Wood-Anderson, as we insist every week, is primarily a receiving tight end standing at 6’4″ 257 pounds. He should be getting a ton of touches in every game, even against SEC competition. None of Chattanooga’s linebackers weight more than 230 pounds. There is no way they can defend him, and Jim Chaney should be drawing up plays for his superstar tight end all game.
If the Vols can get Wood-Anderson going early, they can build an early lead and keep this game in their control. One huge plus for Wood-Anderson is the fact that he has emerged as an outside blocker as well, so he can help get the run game going.
Simply put, Wood-Anderson is an all-around talent if used right. Jarrett Guarantano stared him down too much at times last week, particularly when he threw his interception. This week, Chaney still needs to incorporate him into the offense more. He’s that good, and there’s no way the Mocs will have the horses to be able to guard him.
