Tennessee vs. Arkansas: Open game thread

A big one for a few reasons.

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

After a week off, Tennessee is back in action tonight on the road against Arkansas. The Razorbacks are much improved so far under Sam Pittman, who knows a little something about Jim Chaney and his offense. Defensive coordinator Barry Odom is another familiar face, while offensive coordinator Kendal Briles interviewed with Jeremy Pruitt for the same position in Knoxville after the 2018 season.

One more familiar face — former Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks — will start under center tonight for Arkansas.

For Tennessee, tonight is all about showing us some improvement. Sitting at 2-3, Jeremy Pruitt has to get this thing turned around, kind of similar to the Mississippi State matchup in 2019. The Volunteers badly need some momentum, and it has to start tonight with Auburn, Texas A&M and Florida looming in the coming weeks.
