Tennessee wanted to be in Atlanta, playing for the SEC championship. They’ll have to settle for Tampa, Fla. in hopes of winning the Outback Bowl.
The official bowl announcement came on Sunday. However, there was more than just a bowl destination to contemplate. There was also recruiting news afoot.
Here are three things to know:
- It’s back to Florida for the Vols this bowl season.
- Tennessee apparently decided to go in another direction in recruiting; they revoked a scholarship and lost another commitment who decided to explore his options.
- The Vols received some respect from the College Football Playoff committee.
