KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee looks to dodge the upset bug one final time before its SEC East Division showdown with Florida next week.
Mid-American Conference stalwart Ohio (1-1) will be looking to beat a ranked opponent for the first time in its football program’s history when it kicks off against the No. 15-ranked Vols (2-0) in this SEC Network game.
Tennessee is expected to shuffle its starting offensive line this week, with sophomore Jack Jones anticipated to make his first start.
The Vols will also be looking for freshman Tyler Byrd to make big plays out of the slot with senior receiver Josh Smith hobbled by an ankle injury.
