KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Butch Jones will put his Tennessee football team through two more practices, Tuesday and Thursday, leading up to the annual Orange and White Game Saturday at Neyland Stadium.
The Vols are coming off their second straight Top 25 season and third straight bowl win, and that momentum carried into spring drills.
Two scrimmages have taken a bit of a toll on the roster, in terms of how many healthy bodies Jones will have to put on the field for Saturday’s exhibition, the rules and scoring for which have yet to be announced.

Two things to know:
• At long last, Tennessee fans will be able to view the Vols’ quarterback derby for themselves. Junior Quinten Dormady is believed to have a slight edge over redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano. Redshirt sophomore Sheriron Jones has also had a strong spring, and true freshman Will McBride will showcase his skills.
• The game will not likely be a true scrimmage because of the high number of injuries. Jones will likely provide a format that will enable the players to showcase their skills while also entertaining the tens of thousands of fans expected to turn out.
