Tennessee’s potential bowl destinations are still all over the map.
Some prognosticators have the Vols (7-4, 4-3 SEC) staying in state. Others have Tennessee headed to Charlotte, N.C. However, this is the first time that two analysts have predicted a Tampa, Fla. locale, for the Outback Bowl.
Of course, the Vols still have to take care of business this week as they host Vanderbilt (4-7, 2-5 SEC). However, a sunny bowl destination looks to be within Tennessee’s grasp.
