Football On The Main Stage
Tennessee travels to Oklahoma for its third game of the year and its first outside the cozy confines of Neyland Stadium. If all goes as planned and the Vols roll into Oklahoma undefeated, this will be a true big-boy litmus for Butch Jones in the all-important Year 2. Him and his charges are presented with an opportunity to prove something to the many who doubt their ability to ascend to legitimacy -- and perhaps beyond -- and now they get to do it when everybody's watching.
