Tennessee has announced the rosters for Saturday’s Orange and White Game. The game will split the roster into first team offense (orange) and first team defense (white). That also means the second team offense will run with the white, while the second team defense will run with the orange.

What does this mean? It means we get a depth chart of sorts, which is big news considering how tight-lipped the staff has been to this point. Here’s your first look at who the starters could be this fall.
