KNOXVILLE — Tennessee has a long to-do list coming up this weekend with Indiana State headed into Neyland Stadium.
The No. 21-ranked Vols, coming off a 42-41 double-overtime win over Georgia Tech in Atlanta, have a list of walking wounded and are looking for more playmakers.
Tennessee (1-0) plays the Sycamores (0-1) of the FCS Missouri Valley Football Conference at 4 p.m. on Saturday (TV: SEC Network).
Vols Coach Butch Jones wants Tennessee to have as much momentum as possible when it heads to The Swamp to play Florida on Sept. 16.
The Vols are still scrambling to sort out their linebacker corps, while Tennessee’s receiving corps ranks among the most inexperienced in the nation.
Junior quarterback Quinten Dormady needs more work with his receiving corps, but Jones has also announced that redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano will see the first action of his young collegiate career.
