Tennessee still has a chance to win the SEC East, and one Volunteer is lobbying for some help to make that happen.
Vols DT Kahlil McKenzie tweeted at LSU’s Donte’ Jackson on Tuesday to say happy birthday. However, he also made a request of the defensive back.
@Donte3_ happy B day brodie ?? do us a favor next week haha

That favor, of course, would be beating Florida. The Gators still control their destiny in the East. If they lose another SEC game, however, the Vols would hold the tiebreaker after beating Florida head-to-head.
Tennessee could then guarantee a trip to the SEC Championship if they won their final three games.
Jackson responded to McKenzie a few minutes later.
Thanks big dog, you know we will ??? https://t.co/5T4aIl6AqU
