Tennessee to open 2020 season against South Carolina

Week one is set.

NCAA Football: Alabama-Birmingham at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Volunteers will open their 2020 season against the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Volunteers will make the trip to Columbia this year, looking to make it two in a row against Will Muschamp’s program.

Tennessee and the rest of the Southeastern Conference will play a conference-only schedule in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Non-conference games against Furman, Charlotte, Oklahoma and Troy were canceled earlier this month. Using a strength of schedule formula, the SEC added two games to each team’s schedule for the fall, awarding the Volunteers Texas A&M and Auburn.

The opener against South Carolina will take place on September 26th. The entire schedule will be released tonight, live on the SEC Network at 7 p.m. ET.
