The Tennessee Vols already knew who they’d be playing in 2020, now they know exactly when they’ll be playing each SEC team on their schedule this season.
Here’s how the Vols’ revised 2020 schedule shakes out.
- September 26 — Tennessee @ South Carolina
- October 3 — Missouri @ Tennessee
- October 10 — Tennesse @ Georgia
- October 17 — Kentucky @ Tennessee
- October 24 — Alabama @ Tennessee
- October 31 — BYE
- November 7 — Tennessee @ Arkansas
- November 14 — Texas A&M at Tennessee
- November 21 — Tennessee @ Auburn
- November 28 — Tennessee @ Vanderbilt
- December 5 — Florida @ Tennessee
This schedule worked about as well as it could have for the Vols. I assumed that Tennessee would end up with a brutal three or four-game stretch. But the worst it gets for the Volunteers is Texas A&M and Auburn in back to back weeks.
The Georgia and Alabama games are split up by Kentucky. And Auburn and Florida get split up by Vanderbilt.
I’m still not overly optimistic that Tennessee will get to seven wins, but I could see a 6-4 finish with the schedule (not saying 7-3 isn’t possible, I just don’t expect it).
If the Vols get to six wins with this brutal schedule, it should be considered a massive success for Jeremy Pruitt and Tennessee.
