KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Today is the first day of winter, but things are heating up for Tennessee athletics.
The Vols closed out the home portion of their Music City Bowl on Tuesday and will reconvene on Christmas Day before heading to Nashville for on-site practices leading up to the 3:30 p.m. game against Nebraska on Dec. 30.
Recruits are sure to be watching, and Tennessee might add a couple before the game kicks off. North Carolina defensive lineman Matthew Butler is expected to decide later Wednesday, and Georgia cornerback Yusuf Corker could decide in the next week.
The Vols basketball team is gearing up for a big challenge, as well, as they’ll play at East Tennessee State at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
SEC Country’s Mike Griffith and WNML’s Josh Ward discussed all the happenings that are ahead, plus a review of the interviews with Tennessee’s South Florida early enrollees Deandre Johnson and Shanon Reid.
