Tennessee Drops Out of Latest Polls Following Heartbreaking Loss

New, 1 comment

The Vols exit the top 25 following their 26-20 loss to Florida on Saturday.

The latest AP and Coaches Polls were released on Sunday afternoon and feature some major shake ups following a wild week 3 that saw upsets, heartbreak, and some clarity.
As far as Tennessee is concerned, anytime a team is ranked anywhere between 20 and 25, they are left with little to no room for error. On Saturday, the Vols entered the Swamp ranked 23rd in both the AP and Coaches Poll, but following a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of 24th ranked Florida, Tennessee was left on the outside looking in on Sunday.

Fortunately for Butch Jones’ team they will face 0-3 UMass on Saturday with a chance to improve to 3-1 on the season. While a win may not effect their ranking, it will come a week before 11th ranked Georgia comes to Knoxville in what will be a very important match up as far as the SEC East is concerned. For now the Vols will enter week 4 unranked for the first time since week 10 of the 2016 season after a loss South Carolina.

Here is how the week 4 AP and Coaches Poll’s look heading into week 4:
