The Tennessee hype train continues as the season approaches. CBS Sports analyst Brian Jones was the latest to express his believe in the Volunteers. On a recent broadcast, Jones made a prediction that the Volunteers would recreate the success of the 1998 season with a national championship victory over Florida State.

Tennessee does have one of the conference’s more experienced quarterbacks, Joshua Dobbs, returning this season. Dobbs passed for more than 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns last season and is the source of many Volunteer fans’ high hopes this year.
Tennessee will open the season Thursday at home against Appalachian State.
