KNOXVILLE — Tennessee is a phoenix, rising from the ashes.
The Volunteers (6-3, 2-3 SEC) host Kentucky (5-4, 4-3) at 12 p.m. ET at Neyland Stadium. Suddenly, Butch Jones’ squad has new life. That three-game losing streak that started Tennessee’s fall from the polls ended last Saturday. Sure, it was against Tennessee Tech, but more importantly, Florida lost to Arkansas. That brought Tennessee closer to the top of the SEC East standings.
Three more wins, coupled with just one more conference loss for the Gators, and Tennessee heads south to Atlanta for that first Saturday in December.
