Tennessee will take on Virginia Tech Week 2 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
It is a highly-anticipated game and it looks like ESPN’s College GameDay wants in on the action.
Vice president of customer service and guest experience at the race track, Ben Trout, recently told Sports Radio WNML that Bristol Motor Speedway is confident that College GameDay being in attendance for the Sept. 10 matchup.
“We have a pretty good indication, pretty good feeling, that Kirk Herbstreit and his crew will be in town for College GameDay,” Trout told Sports Radio WNML. “We feel like that’s going to happen. We’re still waiting on some official confirmation on that.”
The last time College GameDay hosted a Tennessee game was Sept. 15, 2012 when the Vols fell to Florida, 37-20.
The Vols will enter the game off an opening matchup against Appalachian State, as the Hokies begin the 2016 season coming off a 7-6 (4-4 ACC) record.
