Tennessee pulled off its first win of the 2019 season this past Saturday against the Tennessee-Chattanooga Mocs. It was a dominating, 45-0 win that saw all three phases of the team excel to an extent.

Obviously, the Vols aren’t anywhere close to a top-25 team, so they likely won’t be seen in any such poll this year, but let’s go ahead and check in on SB Nation’s top-25 FanPulse poll:

There are some changes from last week’s poll. LSU moved past Oklahoma, Florida dropped to No. 10, and Utah cracked the top-10. Wisconsin continues to move up, USC and Mississippi State dropped out of the top-25, and Arizona State and Virginia are newcomers.

Below is Rocky Top Talk’s own Week 3 poll. You can check out Week 2’s poll here to compare who has moved up, down, or stayed the same.

1. Clemson

2. Alabama

3. Georgia

4. LSU

5. Oklahoma

6. Ohio State

7. Notre Dame

8. Auburn

9. Utah

10. Michigan

11. Texas

12. Florida

13. Wisconsin

14. Penn State

15. UCF

16. Oregon

17. Texas A&M

18. Washington State

19. Iowa

20. Washington

21. Boise State

22. Michigan State

23. Virginia

24. Maryland

25. Memphis

Confidence is up after the Vol’s win against UTC last week:

Last week, only about a third of fans were encouraged about the program’s direction. That number has since risen to over 50%.

Hopefully it’ll be even higher after the matchup with the Florida Gators on Saturday.
