It will be the third straight home game that the Vols have worn the jerseys at home against Georgia.

When the Tennessee Volunteers take on the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday (CBS, 3:30), they’ll be in their alternate smokey grey uniforms.

Tennessee won their last home game against Georgia in the smokey alternates. They beat Florida and earned a Music City Bowl victory against Nebraska while wearing them last year.

In addition to the alternate uniforms, Neyland Stadium will be a checkerboard once again. The “Checker Neyland” campaign is back. You can look to see what color your section is wearing here.

In addition to all of this, Peyton Manning will be saluted at halftime.

Will all of this add up to a Tennessee win? Butch Jones could certainly use a win over the 7th ranked Bulldogs. We’ll see if the added flash helps. Georgia currently sits as an eight point favorite.
