The 6-6 Tennessee Volunteers cap off their 2014 season today at 3:20 against the 7-5 Iowa Hawkeyes in the Taxslayer Bowl on ESPN. It is especially nice to still be talking football after the New Year's Eve parties, but even more important is the fact that how the team fares and how they look doing it will frame the perspective for next season (and seasons to come). Tennessee's trip to the Taxslayer (formerly the Gator Bowl) marks the first January bowl game for the Vols since the 2007 season and the 50th bowl game in the history of the program, which ties the program for fourth all-time.
Tune in at 3:20 for what could be a really good game and, even more importantly, a statement about the immediate future of the Vols.
