Tennessee picked up a huge win to stop the bleeding on Saturday against Mississippi State. It was really a dominant performance for the Volunteers, who controlled the line of scrimmage and fought back from two redzone turnovers early in the game.

On today’s podcast episode, Evan and I will dive into what stood out from that win, plus look ahead to Alabama.

  • Jarrett Guarantano’s redemption
  • Brian Maurer’s mistakes
  • A dominant defense putting up seven sacks
  • A different looking Alabama team
  • What we need to see in Tuscaloosa to be satisfied

Finally, we’ll dive into a little basketball talk with the season set to begin in three weeks. Tennessee has been picked to finish fifth the SEC by the media after losing four of their five starters from last year.

  • What will this new-look Tennessee squad accomplish?
  • What exactly will they look like? Faster pace?
  • Can Yves Pons, Jalen Johnson, Zach Kent and John Fulkerson take steps forward?
