Here is our prediction for every 2020 Tennessee football Volunteers game.

Well, the crazy season is upon us. Tennessee football has a 10-game SEC-only schedule this year amidst the pandemic, and that includes five games against teams ranked in the top 15 nationally. As a result, things are much more brutal than they otherwise would have been.

What does that mean for Jeremy Pruitt’s third team on Rocky Top? Will he be able to take the leap forward that fans are hoping he does given the fact that he has so many returning starters, added a top 10 recruiting class and won six straight games to close out last season?

That’s the storyline that will dominate Tennessee football in 2020. The Vols have a much more difficult path to the same winning percentage they had last year, which ended with an 8-5 record and a Gator Bowl win over the Indiana Hoosiers. How well will they navigate their slate this year?

It’s time for us to break that down. In this post, we’ll be predicting every game on Rocky Top from the opener to our projected bowl game for them. The unpredictability of the season made it impossible for us to do an overall prediction, but we can still do the Vols.

Now, these predictions aren’t going to be the same as our predictions for each week. Obviously, things will change based on what we have seen throughout the season. Last year, when the Vols started 0-2, it changed a lot of our gambling picks after that. However, we can still give an overall projection for Rocky Top before everything kicks off.

So just how well will UT perform this year? What will Pruitt’s next campaign in Knoxville look like amidst the pandemic? Let’s go ahead and analyze all of that. This is our prediction of every Tennessee football game for the 2020 season.
