The Tennessee Vols are unlike most teams in the SEC East — they don’t have a natural geographical non-conference rival that they play each season.
While I’m not keen on a permanent non-conference game each season (I mean come on, is Georgia/Georgia Tech really that interesting?), I would like to see the Vols schedule some games that would provide interesting storylines.
Tennessee/West Virginia will be fun this fall, but there’s not a lot there in terms of a narrative between the two programs.
I think there are at least five programs the Vols could schedule a series with that would be incredibly hyped — especially given some things that have recently taken place (think coaching search items).
Here are five non-conference matchups Tennessee could schedule that I think fans would absolutely love.
