Tennessee football's game time windows have been announced for the 2024 season. A few weeks ago, we learned the start times for the first three games of Tennessee's season, and now we have an idea of when Tennessee will play the rest of its schedule. 

The Vols will open the 2024 schedule with a 12:45 PM ET matchup against Chattanooga. Tennessee will then head to Charlotte, North Carolina, for a 7:30 PM ET kickoff against North Carolina State. They will play Kent State at 7:45 PM ET ahead of SEC play. 

This year's game time windows will be split into four different time slots (all times are Eastern). Early games will kick off between Noon and 1 PM, afternoon games will kick between 3:30 and 4:30 PM, night games will kick between 6:00 and 8:00 PM, and finally, flex games are to be determined but can be placed in the afternoon or night window. 

Here is the full game time window schedule for the 2024 season. 

Tennessee's SEC schedule consists of five flex games, two night games, and one early game. The lone early game is the regular season finale against Vanderbilt, while the two night games will be at home in back-to-back weeks against Kentucky and Mississippi State. 

As of the initial release, the Vols flex games are Oklahoma, Arkansas, Florida, Alabama, and Georgia. This gives Tennessee game time windows for afternoon or night games in all but three games for the 2024 season, with two early games against non-conference opponents. 

Tennessee only has four road games this year, but all are flex games. If each game falls within the 6:00 to 8:00 PM night window, the Vols could be in hostile SEC environments at night. If Tennessee starts the season strong, the Vols could have night matchups against Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Georgia.
