Jackson the Mule says . . .

. . . wooooo, defense!!!

Another game, another ranked, defensively tough opponent for Tennessee's struggling offense. At least the Vols return to the friendly confines of an opposing team's stadium. (Kidding!) An upset could be in the making depending on four things: (1) whichever team's New Offense with a New Quarterback can find itself first and/or best against a tough defense; (2) whichever team's offense can pass the ball well enough to supplement the run; (3) whichever team wins on third down; and (4) Tennessee's punt coverage.
