Tennessee and ETSU are in a holding pattern right now due to lightning in the area. It’s the second consecutive week that Tennessee’s game has been delayed by weather.
The Vols currently lead the game 10-0, following a blocked punt by Marquill Osborne. Outside of that, it’s been a tough start for Tennessee against an inferior opponent. There is currently 12:02 left in the 2nd quarter.
The cell looks to be small and moving quickly around Knoxville. According to our own Conner Knapp, the skies don’t exactly look too threatening.

Upon further review, this system doesn’t look like much of anything. We should be back live shortly.
UPDATE: Game will resume at 5:40 PM eastern.
